UPDATED 12 JUNE 2020

The nets at our Brewery Road ground are now open for booking.

It is important everyone reads the attached guidelines the ECB have announced before booking their net session.

What this note intends to do is inform you all about how the net facilities can be used by our members as we are required by the guidelines to introduce a booking system to stop any potential over-crowding and breaches of the social distancing requirements. 

The clubhouse will remain closed for the time-being but the nets will be open subject to the guidelines and rules below. To gain access you must use the gate at the front of the clubhouse and not climb over the gate on the far side. The front gate has a combination lock on it. When you book a session you will be sent the code.

 


AVAILABILITY

The nets & the grounds will only be accessible and available to use for WHCC members. Members of the public are not allowed within the ground and notices to this effect will be displayed at entrances.

If you have kindly paid your 2020 membership already then please see below the method with which to book the nets.

Membership for all juniors and seniors have been reduced this season so if you haven’t yet paid your membership, then please do so as previously communicated. 

We are conscious that CV19 may well have impacted some of our members so please do get in touch if you wish to discuss any circumstances which are stopping you from becoming a member in 2020.

GUIDELINES FOR USE

Following ECB guidelines (attached), only two nets of our net facility will be available for members use. The other lanes have been taped off.

Entrance to the ground must be through the front gate to the side of the clubhouse front door. 

Arrive 5 mins before and leave within 5 mins of your session finishing unless you have more than one booking following another.

  • Strict social distancing at all times
  • A group of a maximum of six people with strict 2m distance as a minimum at all times.
  • Two lanes only will be in use
  • The two other lanes must not be used at any time

Once again, please do read the attached guidelines before coming down and using the facilities and thank you to you all for the support of the club in such a difficult time. 

We can only keep the nets open by working together and sticking to the ECB rules otherwise we will have to revert to a full closure.

Thank you,
