Please note we have updated the guidance for Level 3 as summarised below – the full document can be found HERE.

  • The guidance around the sharing of cars for Level 2 has been extended to Level 3:

4.1 From 26th April (level 3), players travelling to and from the venue should avoid car sharing with people outside their extended household unless necessary

  • Removal of the requirement for batters to run in distinct lines

4.5 Batters should try to run in distinct running lines to ensure they are not within 2m of the bowler or other batter. Lines to be marked on the square either side of the wicket

  • Additional sentence for umpires regards COVID risks during play

4.7 Umpires may remind players of COVID regulations if deemed appropriate

  • Additional sentence on spectators

4.9 Members attending a licensed outdoor bar at the club are not classified as spectators

N.B. There is a suggestion that the Scottish Government may relax the rules on no spectators for Level 2 areas – this will be confirmed in early May.

Please find attached below a summary of key factors to remember for players and officials prior to playing fixtures versus other clubs – please share with your members as appropriate.
