COVID-19 update on cricket in England and Wales


This statement applies to changes in England following the Prime Minister’s announcement on 4 January of new national lockdown restrictions.

Wales continues to remain in a national lockdown since 19 December with all cricket activity suspended with a review expected later this week.

In England, ECB can confirm that unfortunately all indoor and outdoor privately owned cricket facilities will now need to close for all but elite cricket activity and disability cricket outdoors.

Cricket clubs in public open spaces such as parks can continue to provide outdoor spaces for individual permitted activity.

The Government has confirmed that:

You can exercise in a public outdoor place:

  • by yourself
  • with the people you live with
  • with your support bubble (if you are legally permitted to form one)
  • in a childcare bubble where providing childcare
  • or, when on your own, with 1 person from another household

Public outdoor places include:

  • parks, beaches, countryside accessible to the public, forests
  • public gardens (whether or not you pay to enter them)
  • the grounds of a heritage site
  • playgrounds

Any public outdoor place used for permitted individual cricket exercise activity should be suitable and safe for the type of cricket activity taking place. You must ensure that you have sought and gained permission to use facilities in a public open space and that it is safe to do so. If a club or local authority have closed cricket facilities within a public open space they should not be used.

There is a risk that during the winter both natural turf cricket squares and non-turf surfaces can be damaged when wet, frozen or snow-covered. These conditions also increase injury risk to participants.

Furthermore, essential safety equipment such as netting may have been removed. Therefore, facilities should not be used unless they are safe and will not be damaged. Where cricket can take place, adequate measures must be taken to keep warm and minimise injury risk, including to other members of the public sharing the open space. You should be considerate to other users of the public open space.

You can also continue to go to work if your work cannot be undertaken from home. So people employed or volunteering to work on grounds maintenance over the winter can continue to do so subject to suitable COVID risk assessment and control measures being in place. Further information on winter maintenance of cricket grounds under COVID can be found on the Grounds Management Association website.

  • March – National Programmes Activator training
  • April – Major marketing activity
  • May 7 – First All Stars Cricket & Dynamos Cricket sessions

Guidance for Cricket Indoors

Click to view in browser



Please see the updated guidelines for cricket indoors, these can be viewed for England and Wales by clicking the buttons below. 


The purpose of these guidelines is to offer practical guidance to venues, coaching providers and clubs on the steps they should take while undertaking cricket indoors. They should be read in conjunction with latest UK and Welsh Government regulations but please note these guidelines could change in response to the current COVID-19 Alert Level or other Government advice in both areas. It is essential that venues, coaching providers and clubs follow the guidance for their particular country, as the updates are different between England and Wales.


In order to keep cricket going as it moves indoors, there will need to be adaptations in place for all, including venues, coaching providers, players, parents/carers, spectators and officials. Those adaptations relate to activity prior to, during and after cricket activity.


A summary of the adaptations is listed below but please read the full guidance documents for both England and Wales for comprehensive details.



Venues, Coaching Providers, Clubs and Participants


• Read the new updated guidance (relevant to their country) and familiarise themselves with new guidance on group size restrictions, face coverings and recording participant information for contact tracing schemes (the principal changes).

• Follow the updated sections in the checklists

• Revisit and republish their risk assessments

• Revisit communications and operational  plans with venues, coaching providers, clubs and participants


Supporting Documents



In relation to England: Checklists for venue operators and coaching providers and clubs and a risk assessment template are all available.


In relation to Wales: Checklists for venue operators and coaching providers and clubs and a risk assessment template are all available.


All of these documents can also be accessed in the ECB Resource Hub here. A reminder to create an account if you have not done so already.

COVID-19 Update


Further to our update yesterday, DCMS and Sport England have today released the clarification here on outdoor exercise.


DCMS and Sport England have confirmed that 1:1 coaching is permissible during lockdown in England in a public outdoor space as long as social distancing is maintained. 1:1 Coaching cannot take place with multiple people from one household.


You can still travel to spend time for exercise outdoors, for example to access an open space, but should look to reduce the number of journeys you make and wherever possible, exercise should be done locally.


There’s no limit on the amount of time spent exercising outdoors, or the amount of times per day you exercise outdoors.


Schools are able to work with external coaches, clubs and organisations for curricular activities where they’re satisfied that it’s safe to do so during school hours.


Where schools are offering extra-curricular activities (that is, before and after school clubs) they should only do so where it’s reasonably necessary to support parents to work, search for work, or undertake training or education, or where the provision is being used for the purposes of respite care. Schools should consider carefully how such arrangements can operate within their wider protective measures.


Competition between different schools shouldn’t take place, in line with the wider restrictions on grassroots sport.


Sport and physical education as part of education and training can continue. Outdoor sports should be prioritised where possible, and large indoor spaces used where it’s not. Colleges should maximise distancing between consistent student groups and pay scrupulous attention to cleaning and hygiene and use maximum fresh air ventilation through either opening doors and windows or ventilation systems.


Competition between different colleges shouldn’t take place, in line with the wider restrictions on grassroots sport.


Professional cricket that is classified as elite by the UK Government can continue as an exemption during this period.


Hospitality venues such as cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars and social clubs must close; with the exception of providing food and drink for takeaway (before 10pm; including alcohol), click-and-collect, drive-through or delivery, if purchased and distributed via the following methods: making deliveries in response to orders received, through a website, or otherwise by on-line communication, by telephone, including orders by text message, or by post.


Whilst school sport can continue as an exemption during this period, university sport must be suspended. Coach education programmes can continue where this cannot be undertaken online.


The health and wellbeing of everyone in the cricket community has and remains our number one priority and we are in dialogue with DCMS about how recreational cricket activity can return safely once the national lockdown ends.

Groundsman working on square 4/11/2020
Nov 4, 2020, 10:20 pm

Today our groundsman was working on our square, he has cut the square down with our rotary mower as the grass was getting a bit long, getting ready for the winter the grass coverage is looking really good.

He also aeriated the whole square to a depth of 5” this year, each year it is done a differtent depths which stops a thach layer developing which in turn will decompact the soil and help to have deeper roots, which is good for strong grass.

The holes also allows in nutrients along with water and air which supports good grass development.

Which in turn will give us a good playing surface next season as long as COVID is sorted out (fingers crossed)
