ECB guidelines for the return of recreational cricket
The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has prepared guidelines for the return of recreational cricket.
The purpose of these guidelines is to offer practical guidance to players and clubs on the steps they should take while undertaking recreational cricket activity in England from Saturday 11 July 2020 onwards, both in training and in matches. They should be read in conjunction with latest UK Government regulations.
The key update to the guidelines is the fact that as of Saturday 11 July 2020 competitive 11-a-side cricket matches can take place – as well as training – with adaptations in place to mitigate the transmission risk of COVID-19, including the overall group size (inclusive of coaches and officials) being limited to 30 people in total.
These guidelines currently apply to England only and could change in response to the current COVID Alert Level or other Government advice.
Below you will find the full guidance and some previously published ECB guidelines as well as useful documents such as risk assessments template, checklist and infographics.
