1st Dec 2020 – Club Reopening (IMPORTANT INFORMATION, PLEASE READ IN FULL)
Following the latest announcement that Kent will be placed under Tier 3 restrictions, when the national lockdown is lifted tomorrow, we will be reopening the club from tomorrow.
There are a few things to consider for those who are planning to return to the club.
After having spent a few days reviewing and querying government, Sport England and England Squash guidelines, with Tier 3 restrictions in place from tomorrow, we are allowed to reopen and the types of play that will be permitted are listed below.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THESE TYPES OF PLAY SUPERSEDE ALL PREVOUS PUBLICATIONS WE HAVE MADE ON THIS SUBJECT:
1. Solo Practice (Adults & Juniors)
2. Singles, Sides, Drills & Routines – 2 Players (Adults & Juniors from same household or support bubble)*
3. Singles, Sides, Drills & Routines – Groups (School, College or University groups who are engaged in curriculum-based, coach-led/supervised activity only)
4. One To One Coaching (Adults & Juniors) **
5. Group Coaching (Up to 15 juniors) ***
* Members are permitted to nominate ONE playing partner to form a support bubble with. Both players must let me know who their partner is and are not permitted to play another else other than players in their own household. This will be reviewed on the 16th of December 2020, where players can re-nominate their support bubble player.
** One to One coaching is only permitted with an England Squash Level 2 Qualified Coach and above and all sessions must be on a booked court. Details of qualified coaches can be found at: http://www.csquash.org/pages/squ
*** There should be a maximum of two players on court at any one time.
IMPORTANT: All members wishing to return to the club from tomorrow onwards will need to request access to the club as door cards will not be automatically switched back on. This can be done by return email to me confirming that you understand and accept these new restrictions that form current club policy and details of your chosen support bubble player, if applicable. There will be a list of members who have access to the club below, which will be updated frequently. Members are only permitted to play with other members on this list so please do not use your card to let others in that don’t have access.
