Guidance for getting your clubhouse ready

Information is available for those clubs that wish to open their bar and provide any food or drink facilities

Following the submission of our revised guidance to the Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport at the start of the week we are waiting for UK Government approval before we can provide any further update on the return of play for recreational cricket. We will advise as soon as we have an update to share.

We have finalised guidance on preparing clubhouses and grounds for when recreational clubs can return to playing cricket in England. The date of which, as we have outlined, is still to be confirmed.

The Government position has however, been updated to allow the opening of bars and food/drink facilities. Clubs, if they wish to, can begin offering this from 4 July.

Within our latest guidance, you can seek information on how to safely offer this to members and visitors.

This guidance includes information for those clubs that wish to open their bar and provide any food or drink facilities in accordance with UK Government guidance from 4 July.

Please also find here the downloadable Action Checklist and the COVID-19 risk assessment template.

These documents can be adapted to individual circumstances and used to inform discussions with your facility provider about safe opening (which may include discussions with Local Authorities or education providers).
