CLUB STATEMENT

 

Bath Cricket Club continues to be led by the latest Government announcements and direction from our Governing Body – the ECB, which means all forms of recreational cricket, including training, remain suspended.

Below is a statement from Nick Pryde (ECB Director of Participation & Growth) released on Tuesday 12th May:

“We are aware that the UK Government has announced changes that affect sport and physical activity in England, which are due to come into effect on Wednesday 13 May.

“We are expecting to receive further clarity from the UK government in the coming days and in turn we will share greater detail and guidelines with the game as soon as we are able.

“Our priority is to support our colleagues and clubs across the game to deliver elements of outdoor cricket in a responsible way that does not compromise safety.

“We completely understand the level of patience that recreational players have had to demonstrate so far and know that most will be desperate to return to the nets to practice. We ask for a little more time to plan out the best way to deliver this opportunity to everyone as safely as possible.

“The health and wellbeing of everyone in cricket remains our No.1 priority. We will share further updates towards the end of the week along with a support plan for our clubs to follow.’’
