Clarity on 'Support Bubbles'

Update and clarification for all members:

As we are all experiencing, the rules around what can and can't be done as restrictions ease can be confusing. One of these areas is around the term 'support bubble'. This is defined on the UK government website www.gov.uk/coronavirus and this is what is referred to in the England Squash 'Back to Squash' guidelines that we need to follow. A snap shot is captured below:

You should only meet people you do not live with in 3 types of groups:

  • you can continue to meet in any outdoor space in a group of up to 6 people from different households
  • single adult households – in other words adults who live alone or with dependent children only – can continue to form an exclusive ‘support bubble’ with one other household
  • you can also meet in a group of 2 households (anyone in your support bubble counts as one household), in any location - public or private, indoors or outdoors. This does not need to be the same household each time.

It remains the case - even inside someone’s home - that you should socially distance from anyone not in your household or bubble. Those who have been able to form a support bubble (which is those in single adult households) can continue to have close contact as if they live with the other people in their bubble. This should be exclusive and should not change. This change also does not affect the support you receive from your carers.

Being in a support bubble in the squash context allows people to play match play with no restrictions as there is no need to socially distance. However, if neither of you are from single adult households, you are then not able to select a friend for squash purposes and you cannot play match play at the present time. You can of course play 'sides' or do socially distanced routines.

A number of members have included other members in the 'support bubble' section of their return to squash form. In light of the above guidance you are asked to review this and do one of the following:

  1. confirm the status is correct as the above criteria are satisfactorily met
  2. update your form to remove the name from the support bubble section as you still wish to play
  3. withdraw your form as you no longer feel you wish to play under these restrictions

If you are in any doubt as to what you think you can do when playing or visiting the club, please contact the Club Chairman, Tim Casey, on tim.casey2@yahoo.co.uk or the Club Secretary, Alastair Hill, on alastair.lesley@gmail.com.

The club is open and ready for safe restricted play, so do come down and play if you have returned your forms!
