COVID 19: ECB Guidelines

The ECB has published guidelines for the return of recreational cricket. Please can all members and supporters familiarise themselves with the guidelines listed below.

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.
