Some of these measures have been in place previously and some are new. Please support us in following these rules by being patient and courteous to others. All measures apply in addition to those already in place such as hand sanitisation and directional signposting. We appreciate that people may be nervous easing out of lockdown, so that is why we are making sure that the club remains as safe as possible for you to visit and enjoy. Please enjoy yourselves and look after each other.

Sports events continue and everyone is encouraged to use our facilities in the way they have in the past, within the rules that apply and those features outlined above. The club bears no responsibility for injury from sports events – watch out for flying cricket balls!

We look forward to seeing you.
