Bapchild Cricket Club

Club Guidelines for all participants – 2021 Season


Bapchild CC understands its duty of care; i.e. a duty to take all measures that are reasonable in the circumstances to ensure the health, safety, wellbeing and welfare of all Participants (Players, coaches, officials, volunteers and spectators) involved in cricket or physical activity with our club.

We look to:

  1. Follow the advice of the UK Government and public health authorities
  2. Follow the guidance and protocols issued by the ECB.
  3. Continue to comply with safeguarding obligations to children (under 18s) and adults at risk (including complying with ECB safeguarding guidance and rules).

The guidance covers for Home and Away Matches as part of the return to cricket under the Step 3 of the ECB plan.   This guidance will be updated and additional documents added as the requirements / guidance change.

In preparation for re-opening the Club has undertaken a COVID-19 Risk Assessment supported by a detailed checklist all of which can be found below

All participants should be aware that there is an increase in transmission risk associated with partaking in even socially distanced group activity and all participants should understand that they are opting to participate in cricket activity.

Where participants believe the risk of attending the activity or have concerns they should not attend and are under no pressure to do so.

In addition if participants become uncomfortable or have concerns during any activity they should inform the Team Captain (seniors) or Team Manager/Coach (Colts) who will look to resolve the issue.  However, participants are free to opt out and leave the activity at any time should they feel the need to do so. 

Any concerns should be passed to a committee member at the earliest opportunity.

In attending an activity all participants are required to read and abide by the GENERAL PARTICIPANTS GUIDELINE and any Sub Category Guideline that your participation includes i.e. if you are a Player (Senior), Bapchild CC Club Representative, Opposition Club Representative, Parent/Guardian/Junior Player, Spectator (if exempt), Umpire and/or Scorer.

In Addition please read the Movement Plan which will explain where to park, where to sit, the layout of the pavilion (in it’s restricted state)
