ECB Update - Friday 15th May

15 May 2020

An update to members,

The ECB has given guidelines for 1-1 and household practise, some of the committee have therefore inspected the facilities this afternoon to see what position we are in to give our members use of the nets under strict protocols. Currently the nets are NOT in a state to be used as the pre summer work could not be completed due to lockdown. Work will be done on the nets this coming week and we will update you on HOW, WHEN and under WHAT CONDITIONS you can use them.

The ECB has released a statement regarding net practise in the current COVID 19 pandemic. 

In summary:
You can exercise outdoors on your own, with members of your household or with one other person from outside your household while keeping two metres apart at all times. You must only exercise in groups of no more than two people, unless you are exercising exclusively with members of your household.
Social distancing of at least two metres must be maintained at all times (unless all participants are members of the same household).
Only one-to-one coaching is permitted per session.
Nets should be used on an ‘every other’ basis, leaving one net free between nets.
Clubhouses can be reopened in a limited way for operational reasons (e.g. for access to first aid equipment) or for toilet access (see full guidance) but all communal areas including bar, changing rooms etc are to remain closed for general use.
Toilet facilities can be opened if the venue wishes, but particular care should be taken by those using them and those cleaning them. Where they are open, venues must ensure soap and water is provided.
No indoor activity at all.
We recommend using your own equipment if possible. If equipment is being shared, please follow UK Government’s guidance on the sharing of equipment.
No saliva or sweat should come into contact with the ball at any time.
Wash hands at home before and after using the outdoor facilities. Bring your own hand sanitiser where possible.


Best regards
