Return to Cricket Guidance

 

ECB guidance and CricketForce Assets for clubs to return to cricket

The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has prepared guidelines and digital assets for the return of recreational cricket in England.

A summary of the adaptations is listed below but please read the full guidance for England for comprehensive details.

  • Individuals should undergo a personal symptom check prior to all activity and not take part if they demonstrate any COVID-19 symptoms.
  • Groups are limited to a maximum of 30 participants, including coaches and officials. Junior training should be split in to groups of up to 15 children.
  • Club representatives should ensure that the facility is compliant with current Government legislation, including legislation and guidance related to COVID-19.
  • All activity should include regular hygiene breaks for participants’ hands and the ball, e.g. every six overs or 20 minutes.
  • Clubs should keep a record of attendees at a match/session, including contact details, to support NHS Test and Trace.
  • Players should remain socially distanced at all times (In England only: wicketkeepers and slip fielders at 1m+).
  • Players should minimise handling of the ball in all activity, by limiting contact as it makes its way back to the bowler and using small groups in training; no sweat or saliva should be added to the ball at any time.
  • Limit the sharing of equipment where possible. Where not possible, practice strict hand hygiene.
  • Batters to run in distinct running lanes to ensure they’re not within 2m of the bowler or their batting partner.
