COVID19 Guidance for use of outdoor facilities

Version 1 – published 30 May 2020

ECB is clear that outdoor facilities should only reopen if those responsible for them are ready to do so and they can do so safely, following public health guidance: no club should reopen their outdoor facilities if they feel unable to meet the requirements.

The Club Directors, Welfare Officers and senior members of the club have given careful consideration to the use of net facilities at Old Elizabethans. The club is prepared to open the nets for restricted use with members adhering to the following guidance:

1. The use of the nets facilities is for club members only

2. There will be a senior representative from the club for all net sessions to ensure everyone adheres to the guidance and carry out risk assessments on both grounds.

3. Senior representative will have access to the main pavilion in the event of an emergency where there is masks, gloves and antibacterial sanitisation available.

4. Signage on guidelines for use of nets and promoting hygiene measures is clearly displayed

5. Club will communicate with members clearly and regularly making you aware in advance of any measures the club is putting in place – with lockdown slowly being eased the situation can change

6. There should be no spectators other than parent/guardian of junior member netting

Nets: -
7. A single net will be used on the main ground and the cage on the artificial wicket on Neel Park.

8. Use the car park for the ground you are netting on

9. Use of nets by appointment only

10. Net session 50 minutes

11. ECB clearly states there must be a clean-down / change over time between participants use of nets.

12. Only 2 people per net, one batting, one bowling (unless are all from the same household.)

2. Must not handle each other’s cricket balls

3. Hand sanitisers will be available at each net.

4. Equipment not in use should be kept in a zipped or closed bag.

5. Clean all common touch points, e.g. the stumps after each person has batted

6. No saliva or sweat should come into contact with the ball at anytime

7. Maintain social distancing (2m rule) at all times

8. No extra-curricular or social activity should take place

9. Juniors (under 18) will be one junior with a qualified coach with a parent or guardian present per session

The Directors are constantly watching all ECB and Government guidance and updates and will implement changes when they feel appropriate.

You can check net availability and your booking using the Club calendar on the Club’s website which all members have access to.

Taking into account there is currently no cricket, some members have been furloughed and some made redundant, we are asking those who have not yet paid to pay half membership fee:
£75 for seniors and £35 for ladies. Juniors to pay £45.

I appreciate some members have paid in full for the season, for which the club is very grateful, helping to keep us financially afloat. The Directors will review subscriptions for 2020 and 2021 at the end of this season.
