As you are all aware by now, COVID-19, better known as Coronavirus, has quickly become a Global Pandemic. The Government has advised that people do not attend Clubs like ours at this time.
Both myself and the Executive Committee have met tonight to discuss what action the club will take from this Saturday, 21st March.
I can confirm that all aspects of the club will close for a period of four weeks.
For how much I love squash, I wanted to pro-long members being able to play for as long as possible. However in this case, I believe the socially responsible and morally correct action to take is to look past our love for the sport and do what is best for everyone. By this, I mean that should circumstances worsen and the club not close, would we look back and regret that decision knowing that we didn't do our part to help protect our members? I think we can all agree that we would want to look back and say we did the right thing.
Everything considered, most of us are very low risk. However, it is the health of family and friends that are vulnerable that we need to consider.
Thank you for your cooperation. I will notify you of any updates when they are available.
I already look forward to seeing you all again soon.
March leagues attached to be played by Tuesday 31st March.
Welcome to Neil Smith and Matt Larkman who have joined; time will tell if I’ve inserted them in the correct leagues!
Finding space for Neil and Matt coupled with a number of withdrawals due to injury has led to a major reshuffle of the bottom half of the leagues. Apologies that this has meant some of you have not moved up a league but you can resolve that by winning your league in March.
Excluding injured players 78% of games were played in February. With all leagues in March containing a maximum of 4 fit players I would like to think everyone can fit in 3 league games this month.
