The Squash and Racketball courts will be opening up for play on 31st July. To begin with we will only be opening court 1. It is essential that you book a court before arriving at the club.
As with all sports, in these unusual times, there will be restrictions on the type of play that can take place.
There should be no more than two players on court at one time.
Full squash & racketball games are only allowed to be played by the following groups: –
1. Members from the same household
2. Support bubble, government definition – i.e
In England, if you live by yourself or are a single parent with dependant children – in other words, if there is only one adult in your home – you can expand your close support network so that it includes one other household of any size. This is called making a ‘support bubble’ and means you are able to have close contact with them as you could if they were members of your own household.
For those from different households
Modified version of squash – ‘Sides’. An adapted version of the game for two players from different households. This cross-court version of squash is designed to comply with social distancing measures, with each player remaining in their own half of the court at all times. During the game, only one player should touch the ball and the court door, and players must not touch court walls. All equipment and touch points should be cleaned and players must wash their hands, before and after play – NOTE: please follow standard practice for court care – i.e. walls should not be cleaned with disinfectant to avoid damage to the plaster.
Full guidance on the hygiene rules will be sent to members via email.
