Indoor Guidance 

Please find below updated documents and guidance for playing cricket indoors in England.

A tightening of COVID-19 restrictions means that the following amendments have been made to the guidance:

  1. Local COVID Alert Levels
  2. This guide applies to Local COVID Alert Level 1 (Medium) where the ‘Rule of 6’ applies to adults (i.e. 18+ year olds) participating in indoor cricket activity
  3. There are exemptions to the ‘Rule of 6’ where groups can be larger than 6 people
  4. In England, you are required by law to wear a face covering in certain indoor settings. This does not currently include gyms, leisure centres and other sport facilities, however when not engaging in sport and physical activity visitors the government encourages visitors to wear face coverings in enclosed public areas where possible and practical. Staff in hospitality and retail are be required to wear face coverings.
  5. Venues must also display an NHS QR Code Poster (physically or electronically).

Please access the full guidance for England here.

Guidance for Wales

Further updated indoor guidance for Wales will be published the week after next to prepare for the Welsh “firebreak” restrictions being lifted on 9th November and in line with the latest Welsh Government advice.

Return to Cricket Grant Scheme

We expect financial pressure on clubs to continue over winter and have extended the Return to Cricket grant deadline to the 15 January 2021.

A reminder that the scheme is open to clubs who have not received a a return to cricket grant since the fund relaunched in July.

The updated guidance notes can be found here.
