Next steps for changing rooms/showers + bar - 28th August

The Committee met on Tuesday 25th August to review the re-opening process and to consider whether there are any opportunities to relax some of the restrictions, specifically whether we can open changing rooms / showers and / or bar.

We have been open again in our new restricted capacity for nearly 4 weeks now. There has been an week on week increase in the number of members returning to play (approx. 35%) with a corresponding week on week increase in court uptake.

Whilst the new conditions are challenging and in no way ideal, the Committee would like to thank all the members for continuing to adhere to guidelines so well. Our approach to re-opening has been to follow the England Squash and UK Government guidelines with a risk assessment to determine the specific response for our club.

With respect to the possibility of opening the changing rooms and showers, we are currently assessing what additional steps we would need to put in place in order to do this safely and not increase the risk of virus transmission. The most critical aspect of this will be to implement an enhanced cleaning regime and we are doing some research as to the best approach. It is also expected that there will be restrictions on how to use the changing rooms ie. only after playing, and limitations on the numbers of people allowed in there at any point in time. We need to complete the risk assessment and implement the actions, and we also need to complete some legionella actions for the showers, so we expect to be able to update members further on this in around 2 weeks.

The bar has been open for the last two Fridays, but unfortunately Russ is away for the next couple of weeks. With the weather turning and future use likely to be more inside than out, we have identified that the inside bar area needs some additional improvements before opening up again. These will be completed in the next couple of weeks. We are looking at the possibility of opening the bar on specific nights of the week but this will only happen once the changing rooms and showers are open for health and hygiene reasons.

In the meantime, the cricket club are welcoming our members to go over there for a drink whenever they are open (quite a few matches on at present).

We will come back to you in the next couple of weeks with a further update on our next steps to open us up even further. We are keen to open up as much as is possible, but we must do so in a way that is safe for all our members.

Thanks for your continued cooperation and support.

The Committee
