Dear members,
 
We hope you are all keeping well and looking forward to a full season of cricket.
 
Following the ECB's guidance document circulated on Friday we are pleased to now be able to confirm the arrangements for the use of our outdoor nets which will commence on Saturday 3rd April
 
The arrangements will be much the same as last season by booking times via our online booking calendar. This is currently being reactivated and we will inform you when it's up and running and slots can commence being booked, this should be by the middle of this coming week. Some sessions will be blocked out for senior net sessions as per last year but they will be invite only.
 
The nets & the grounds will only be accessible and available to use for WHCC members
 
It is important everyone reads the attached guidelines the ECB have announced before booking their net session.
 
Between 3rd and 18th April the nets will be available to use from 9.00am to 7.00pm (ending at 7.45pm) seven days a week. Slots of 45 minutes will be available, giving a gap of 15 minutes in-between each booking. Please note that there is a Net  A and a Net B that you can book. 
 
Please use consideration when booking the nets as well as during your time within them. We want to make sure as many members get the opportunity for some much needed exercise and enjoyment.
 
Please do not book multiple sessions per day. 
 
All members under the age of 16 will need to be supervised by an adult.
 
Please have your booking confirmation to hand during your time at the ground.  
 
The nets must not be used without a confirmed booking.
