Following a test run of the new COVID procedures and protocols discussed and agreed at length by the Trustees and I, we are pleased to say that we will be starting a phased re-opening of the Clubhouse and Bar. I am sure you will appreciate that it is not as simple as just turning the lights back on with the added responsibilities we have as a Club to our staff, members, guests and visitors. The added responsibilities also fall on the members, guests and visitors who will be entering the Club and enjoying the facilities in a comfortable and safe environment.
I make no apologies for this email being lengthy but I want to be clear on the protocols for you so that we can all adhere to them for each other's safety.
The process is new to the staff and to you a members. Please be patient with the staff and other members as we all adapt to the process. The process may develop as Government guidelines dictate; as our own experience develops and as we see how members adapt to it.
We do not have a booking service at the moment but this may be brought in depending on demand.
Sale Sports Club COVID Protocols
Key Protocols for the safety of staff and members/guests
The above measures have been put in place to ensure the safety of our staff, members and visitors to the Club. Everyone has a personal responsibility to adhere to the measures above. Club staff and officials will not tolerate and wilful disregard of the measure above and reserve the right to ask people to leave or in exceptional circumstances close the facility.
Clubhouse Opening Times
With additional measures that need to be in place, there is an additional staff cost involved. It is reasonable to assume that we will not be going back to the 7 day opening, we had prior to lockdown, anytime soon. The Clubhouse and bar will be open strategically when there is expected to be sufficient demand for the bar service.
The opening times therefore will vary each week.
The scheduled opening over the next week is as follows:
Friday 17th July: 19.00 to 22.00 (Junior cricket match on plus tennis coaching & social)
Saturday 18th July: 15.00 to 22.00 (2nd team cricket friendly starts at 12.00 plus Social tennis during the afternoon)
Wednesday 22nd July: 20.00 to 22.30 (Over 40 Cricket Match starting at 18.00 plus social tennis & coaching)
Tennis, Cricket & Spectator Access
Tennis - continue to access the courts to the right hand side of the main building
Cricket - to access the rear of the building, use the left hand side of the building past the bike lock up
Spectators - we request you adhere to social distancing whilst enjoying the sport on view
Thank you in advance for your tolerance and understanding with the above new processes. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org
