As countries from across the globe begin to try recoup from the past year we have lost to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, it’s safe to say that things have been difficult for a lot of us. For many, exercise and sport is a lifeline when things get tough or a way of relieving stress. With the constant back and forth with gym closures and sporting areas in particular, it’s been a tough start to the year.
In case you didn’t realise, the government’s roadmap for the easing of lockdown restrictions is made up of four steps. We are now mid-April and step 2 – which began on 12 April – is now in force. This step means that all outdoor sports facilities, such as tennis and basketball courts, sport pitches, etc. can reopen. Outdoor gatherings of six people, under the ‘rule of six’, or two households, can take place. Organised outdoor sport and physical activity for adults and children can return are exempt from these legal gathering limits.
In addition to this, indoor facilities such as leisure centres, gyms and indoor swimming pools can now open, but no group sessions are allowed. So, what will indoor sport look like now and post-pandemic?
Our centre includes 2 lanes and many high-tech pieces of equipment for local cricketers to use. Like many other places that are now reopening, we are continuing to comply with COVID guidelines. Multiple times a day every day we are cleaning facilities to ensure both staff and visitors are safe.
To ensure we are operating at a maximum capacity, we are only accepting booking through our app. It is very simple to use and the only way to gain entry to the premises. To celebrate our grand reopening and to thank you for your patience, we are running a competition to win a Grade 2, 2lb 10oz long blade custom cricket bat. So, don’t forget to enter!
Whilst we can’t wait to have you back using our state of the art simulators that have the ability to make balls whistle towards you at up to 100mph, there are some measures we’d advise you take:
Use our app to book your spot and plan your visit before you arrive
It’s important to continue to do your bit to help eliminate the spread of the virus, so continue to mask up
Be prepared to continue to follow guidelines and distance when possible
Come and show us what you’ve got!
