Covid Update – May 2021

Squash and Racketball Boxes

So this is the great news we’ve been waiting for, the reopening of the club. We are now just a couple of weeks away from the relaunch of the squash and racketball boxes. Pending the announcement, from Boris Johnson, we should be reopening the club on the 17th/18th May.

With this in mind we are now starting to prepare the boxes for the relaunch. The boxes will be played in the same way as last year, so 5 – 6 players in each box. Promotions and relegations as normal, without the need for bubbles.

Both the squash and the racketball boxes will start on the 17th/18th May (TM Active dependant) and will run for 4 -5 weeks. Eventually we will restore the timing of the past. Where the squash boxes start on the 1st of each month and the racketball league on the 15th of each month. We find this makes it easier for members to join both boxes, if they so wish to.

For the moment the changing rooms will remain closed, hopefully this will be reversed by the end of June, assuming we stay on course with the government projections. Masks must be worn, entering and leaving the centre and as before we need to leave the courts 5-10 minutes early to allow cleaning of the handles etc. The online booking should be open approximately 4 -5 days before the reopening. Club nights are still not allowed, this again should be reversed by the end of June.

We appreciate it’s been a long time coming, but getting back on to the courts is just around the corner and I’m sure you are as keen as us to get the boxes restarted in the best way with competitive and enjoyable matches.
