Squash Update - 8th September 2020

Hi All

You will be aware that the England Squash guidelines changed recently to allow bubbles of six players to play full-court matches, with some additional hygiene measures required.

If you would like to form your own bubble, please email me with the names of all of the players in your group to fulfil the track and trace requirements. Players are able to change bubbles but must take a 7 day break between playing with their original bubble amd getting on court with a new bubble. Players MUST inform Jeremy before resuming play.

Chairman's Update - 2nd September 2020

Dear Member

I find it hard to believe that it is September already, what a lot of changes and upheaval we have all been through already this year! I should like to thank you all for your support and patience whilst we have muddled our way through the ever changing guidelines.

The various committees have become adept at Zoom meetings, chairmen have been quick to let you know of lessening of restrictions and it has been lovely to hear the sound of squash being played at last.

Squash Chairman's Newsletter 31st July - SQUASH IS BACK!

Dear Member

After a long wait, it's time to get back on court. Thanks for bearing with us while the preparations have been put in place.

So before we all charge back on court, it's important to read, understand and follow the guidelines below. The aim is to significantly minimise the risk of infection from Covid-19 while still having the benefit of a game of squash or racketball.

Attached is also the England Squash recommendations for how to play until the restrictions can be lifted further.

So have a good read and enjoy getting back to squash safely.

Chairman's Update re Squash - 29th July

Dear Member

As I am sure you are all aware the latest guidelines allow us to reintroduce the playing of Squash to the club.  This is very welcome news and I am sure that the squash players are looking forward to picking up their rackets again.

England Squash have produced guidelines for us, as clubs, to follow not dissimilar to those produced by the LTA.  We have delayed opening the courts until Monday 3rd August so as to allow sufficient time to get in the necessary supplies and allow the builders to finish the bulk of the work associated with the ladies’s changing rooms.

Tennis Chairman's Newsletter - 9th July

This Newsletter should be read in conjunction with the Corona Virus update of 4th June.

Dear Member

Following further discussions between government and LTA, revised guidelines for Clubs have just been published by LTA. You will be aware from the Chairman’s note yesterday of some of the recent relaxations mainly relating to the use of the bar and toilets but, as far as playing tennis and coaching is concerned, not much has changed.
