As many of you will be aware, the ECB updated its guidance last Friday:
“(The) ECB maintains the position that all recreational cricket remains suspended until further notice, with the sole exception of the use of outdoor facilities for the purpose of undertaking exercise as set out in our detailed guidance document.”
As a club, we need to be mindful of the additional statement:
“(The) 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.”
We are keen to open up our nets, and we already know many players are eager to use them, BUT we have to put numerous plans in place before they can open. The Exec. Committee are already working hard behind the scenes towards a viable solution to the ECB’s stringent guidelines BUT we need to take our time to ensure we get everything right.
Details surrounding the opening of and use of the nets, along with the re-opening of the 2020 Membership Registration process, will be made available as soon as we are ready. Before this can happen, we need to implement a variety of new systems to comply with the ECB’s guidance that the club and members will need to follow.
The safety of our members is paramount and therefore, until everything in place to ensure this, the nets and the grounds at both our Poynton and Disley sites remain closed.
We thank you for your co-operation in staying away from both sites but we hope to see you very soon.
