GUIDANCE FOR SQUASH – 20 JULY 2020
Welcome back to squash
All guidelines are under constant review and subject to change.
From Saturday 25th July, with social distancing in place, squash courts will open at Roehampton Club for:
◊ Solo practice
◊ Social distance coaching
◊ Play for those from the same household
◊ Members MUST book a court, please make sure you have a Mycourts login
◊ No booking = no play = no exceptions
◊ Courts can be booked one week in advance

◊ Courts 4-6 will open at 8am each day to 8:45pm (last booking 8pm) reviewed weekly
◊ Court 6 is now set up as a singles court until doubles is allowed
All Members to input their names when booking a court online. This includes each name from any household playing. ES guidelines state we must do this so we can keep track of who is onsite each day.
So that MyCourts can show your name on the booking sheets, you should allow permission. If you have not already done this please follow these instructions:
1 Log into the Members’ website at www.roehamptonclub.co.uk
2 Click BOOK COURTS on the Members’ website homepage
3 Select ‘privacy settings’
4 Click the box to ‘accept your name will be shown on the Booking Sheets when you book and when others book courts and select you as “playing partner/opponent”’.
If you have any problems with this, please email your permission to Paul.firstname.lastname@example.org and I will do this for you.

Note to Members
You may have read or heard England Squash is allowing two members from different households to play a modified conditioned version of squash called – ‘Sides’. The Squash Committee in consultation with our Health and Safety advisors have agreed not to currently include this and for its introduction in the second phase of squash returning to the Club.
We wish Members to return safely, to minimalise risk of injury or even a heart attack! It has been nearly 4 months since Members have played and we want Members to be sensible on their initial return to court.
Thank you for your cooperation and we look forward to the phased return of squash.
Should you have any questions regarding squash or coaching please do contact Paul:

Anyone with ONE of the following symptoms – fever, cough or who is generally unwell – should stay at home and contact their GP. If in any doubt, trust your instincts and please stay at home.
