POLICY FOR SAFE USE OF THE OLD CROSSLEYANS’ SQUASH CLUB DURING THE CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) OUTBREAK
From 5th December 2020, the Old Crossleyans’ Squash Club courts and gym has re-opened for use by the members, subject to restrictions due to the government’s tiering system and advice from England Squash.
In line with Government requirements, the club has carried out a risk assessment and the current status can be found here.
At all times, members will be expected to follow Government, Health and Safety Executive, England Squash, Public Health England and Old Crossleyans’ Squash Club local procedures and guidelines:-
