Following the mail sent to all club members earlier this week, I’m pleased to announce – on behalf of the Committee – that our lawns are opening for pre-booked singles play (only) from Monday 18th May.
While it’s vitally important that we all stay alert to the continuing virus threat, those members who wish to play may do so; recognising that it’s your own responsibility to keep yourself and others safe: in particular, we ask all members to observe the cleaning and social distancing conditions we have published . These are based on guidance from the Croquet Association and are in compliance with current regulations as published by HM Government. Copies are also posted in the clubhouse.
Up to 4 members can be present on the club grounds at any point in time, playing games of singles, with 1 game per lawn. All games must be booked through the online booking system, with each slot being limited to 90 minutes to ensure lawn availability to as many as want to play.
As equipment-sharing is not allowed, we will also be operating a loan scheme of club mallets to those members without one. Please contact me for more details of that, or for any other queries about our re-opening.
