Critical announcement: playing our part in keeping the club open
We would like to thank all members for their efforts in following the covid restrictions. The club committee and directors are well aware how difficult the lockdown and social restrictions have been for everyone. Unfortunately we are not out of the woods yet, local policing of the restrictions is on the increase, resulting in warnings and heavy fines being handed out, including temporary closures of premises. The directors of the club are working hard to ensure the safety of all members, as they are legally responsible for the premises and actions of the members on site.
This a gentle but critical reminder that absolute compliance to both national law and club rules are key to the club remaining open. We request that, whilst restrictions continue there be no social congregations of more than 2 households on any part of the club’s property or grounds.
To ensure compliance and demonstrate that as a club we are taking all the necessary measures the law requires we will be re-enforcing and strengthening our procedures in this area. Members of the committee and coaching team have been asked to politely remind members of the regulations if they observe any breaches.

general etiquette, respect
At our club we politely ask that you treat everyone with respect, on and off the courts. Please be well mannered and welcoming when interacting with people across our site. If waiting for a court please keep your distance and be patient.
Please make sure you are wearing the right footwear before entering the squash courts. Running trainers are NOT permitted as they cause an increased risk of ankle sprain due to their higher heel (made for shock absorption). These types of trainers will also leave marks, damaging our courts therefore appropriate footwear is required.
Make sure that you are following the Covid-19 guidelines we have set up above as it allows us to keep everyone at the club safe while keeping the courts thriving.
