Lawns re-open for play

After another morning of measuring, drilling and hammering in the hoops, all four full lawns and eight short lawns are now ready for play to resume on Monday, 29 March.

Note Chester’s strict observance of covid precautions – five plus photographer equals Rule of Six, all socially distanced

Remember, covid precautionary measures still apply:

    • Clubhouse may be used only for access to the toilets and equipment
    • Social distancing at all times inside and outside the clubhouse
    • Using hand sanitiser when entering the clubhouse or storeroom
    • Cleaning balls, mallets and other shared equipment and toilets after use  [However, club mallets will not be available on loan but may be borrowed on the day and then cleaned and returned after use]
    • Continuing to use the lawn booking system to maintain a record of attendance
    • The Rule of Six allowing groups of up to six people from different households enables doubles or two double-banked singles games to be played on a full or short lawn
    • Organised events such as taster days and coaching sessions involving more than six people permitted subject to additional planning and supervision
    • Avoiding social or informal gatherings
    • Travel restrictions still apply until further notice which means that play limited to locally arranged games, and league matches and competitions involving other clubs will not resume until later
