We are very pleased let you know that you are able to get back on the squash courts from Saturday 25th July.
As you might imagine, there are quite a few limitations on what we can do in order to minimise the risk from Covid-19. We plan to re-open in three phases. Phase 1 starts on Saturday. Phases 2 and 3 will see some lifting of the initial limitations, but we don't have a timescale om those at the moment.
We would like to invite Beverley Squash Club Members to get back on court, providing the changes within the club and rules outlined below are adhered to. Players are reminded that they are playing at their own risk and should not attempt to get back on court if they exhibit symptoms of COVID-19 or if anyone in their household has exhibited such symptoms.
[Please note the conditions are subject to change - an up to date list will be displayed on the noticeboard in the entrance to the club.]
1. Solo practice is permitted.
2. Play between people living within the same household/bubble is permitted.
3. Conditioned games or routines (e.g. sides) are permitted, in compliance with social distancing rules. Suggested routines have been displayed elsewhere.
4. No competitive match play to take place, except where condition 2 applies.
5. 40-minute court bookings only - back-to-back courts cannot be booked.
