Following the publication of full guidance by sports governing bodies...

* Please follow Government advice and guidance, in particular with regard to social distancing and hand hygiene: https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus
* Toilets, first aid and drinking water will be available in the squash building, as well as access to the tennis court floodlighting, but the changing/shower facilities should NOT be used
* It is important to limit numbers in the squash building so a one-in, one-out procedure should be followed, and the building should NOT be used as a poor weather shelter
* Face masks are encouraged in all indoor areas

* The Croquet chalet and sheds can be entered to access to equipment, but should NOT be used as a social area or as a poor weather shelter
* Numbers are restricted to a maximum of six players on the lawn at a time, and social afternoons will not be running initially

Squash & Racketball:
* Unfortunately, the squash courts have to remain closed at present, although there is more optimistic news from England Squash about the return to play over April/May
* It would be good to have feedback from squash members regarding any restrictions that you would be happy to accept, eg solo practice, ‘sides’ format, etc  
Further info from England Squash – https://www.englandsquash.com/back-to-squash/guidance

* The clubhouse will remain closed, except for access to floodlighting, and a one-in, one-out procedure should be followed
* Allow players to exit courts safely before entering for your booking, and use the sanitizer provided after touching common surfaces such as gates
* Courts 1&2 will not be accessible from the gate by the clubhouse to avoid mixing with the pre-school, and the garden area should not be entered when the pre-school is in attendance
* Avoid sharing equipment, although there is no requirement to use separate balls now, and focus on hand hygiene at all times
* Coaching activities will be taking place with action plans in place to limit contact: parents/guardians can attend a child activity, but this is limited to ONE person per child and off court only
* Club play will recommence on Sunday 18 and Wednesday 21 April
