Controlled access to Radyr CC all weather cricket nets

Public Health Guidance for Limited Usage from Strict Conditions and Website Booking System

Latest update for Club Members, 19 June 2020 (Wales-stage2)

Following guidelines announced by the Welsh government we now have two all-weather nets available and they can now be booked on the online booking system be available from Wednesday 24th June 2020 12-8pm.

At this time the nets will be open to booking for senior cricketers only until a time that youth coaches can be co-ordinated and available for one to one sessions. We expect one to one jnr sessions will be available in the very near future and will be announced via email and the website.

As per copy below, the nets are only available to fully paid up members of the club. Please do not try to book a net if you are not a fully paid up member. The same applies if you try to attend a net when someone else has booked it. Payment options are available from the club treasurer.

We are also hoping Cricket Wales will relax the 2 person per net situation in the coming weeks (stage 2) but until a time we are confirmed to be at the ECB stage 3 roadmap to the return of recreational cricket we will adhere to the existing guidelines.
The nets will be open from Thursday 25th June 2020. Usage will be strictly regulated based on the terms of the Cricket Wales guidance issued on Friday 19 June 2020. These have at their heart the government’s social distancing and other measures which also remain in place in all respects.

Enforcement of Conditions of Usage of the Nets

This advice is principally to clarify our responsibilities towards other members. Covid-19 is a deadly disease which continues to circulate in the community. Some of us may be young and/or immune but we can also be a carrier of the virus and pass it on to others who may be less fortunate.

Therefore, the use of the nets will be monitored, and the guidance below strictly enforced. As any member or members in breach of the guidance would constitute an unwarranted risk to the health of others, they will face disciplinary measures.

Summary of Main Points

  1. The pavilion, including changing rooms, showers and toilets are closed. No access to the club house is permitted at any time.
  2. The Club is required to maintain an accurate written record of contact information for those who have used the nets to support contact tracing in the case of a suspected or confirmed COVID-19 infection. The online booking system has been devised for this very purpose and is compulsory.
  3. Bookings are for a limited duration of 45 minutes cricket and 15 mins sanitising for a ‘single’ (hour session) and you must vacate the nets immediately after the hour is complete. You may not stay to socialise.
  4. The Government guidelines of social distancing must always be observed.
  5. Only members who have paid a 2020 subscription may book or otherwise use the nets.
  6. Under 18s must be accompanied by a parent or an adult living in the same household who must be present throughout the net session.
  7. There will be a first aid kit on site for personal use, but no first aider.
  8. Anyone who experiences Covid-19 symptoms within 7 days of being at Radyr CC must report this to Peter Scott , RCC Welfare Officer, on

Social Distancing

Strict social distancing measures in accordance with government advice are at the heart of the conditions of use:

  • users must cease practising and vacate the nets 45 minutes after the booked start time of each session – do not overstay your allocated time slot which ends at 15 minutes to the hour; you must be clear of the area by the time the next users arrive. You may not stay to socialise.
  • two members may share a net if they are from different households or from the same household.
  • three members may only use a single net if they are allfrom the same household.
  • initially, only two of three nets will be open at any one time with a one vacant net between them.
  • your net will be allocated to you in the booking system – you may not vary this.

Other Covid-19 Related Measures to be Observed

As well as washing your hands at home before leaving for the Club:

  • members must bring their own hand sanitiser with them and apply it before entering the nets
  • Covid-19 may be contracted by touching a ball or equipment handled by an infected person – to reduce the risk of this no saliva or sweat should come into contact with the ball at any time
  • for the same reason do not borrow equipment – use only your own equipment, including your own cricket balls – your equipment must be kept in a zipped bag when not in use
  • similarly avoid touching the netting and metal work of the nets
  • the pavilion remains closed and members must not attempt to gain entry at any time
