Dear Members,


Squash is nearly here! As you will have seen in our previous message squash is allowed to return from the 25th July with appropriate mitigations. Unfortunately the University Sports Centre will not be opening its courts at this time and we will continue to offer our full support to them to do so as soon as possible. However as promised we have been collecting the details of all the courts that will be opening locally.

The below have indicated to us that they will be opening on the 25th or very shortly afterwards. We have indicated where there is pay-to-play available, if not you will have to join as a member. Remember to always ring ahead and make a booking for any courts and get information on their covid secure policies. 

You must check each clubs policies but as a general rule the policies are:
  1. Come changed on time with water bottle filled up
  2. Sterilise your hands on entry to the club
  3. Avoid using the changing rooms or toilets if possible
  4. Don't touch the walls, minimal contact with all surfaces and stay on court for the whole booking period
  5. Leave promptly and shower at home - do not socialise at the club
  6. Only play full games with those in your family/bubble
  7. You can play a modified game called 'sides' with people outside of your family/bubble or do socially distanced coaching - see the video here: https://www.englandsquash.com/backtosquash. Also see attached some ideas put together by cambs squash on routines and drills you can do.
  8. Provide contact details to the club when you play, for track and trace
  9. Be careful - remember you're probably really unfit!

Thanks to Richard Loke for helping me compile the list and all of these clubs for working hard to get their clubs ready to open and to England squash for providing clear guidance.

Best Regards
Joe
Cambridge Squash Club Secretary
