CHEADLE Cricket Club have commenced practice sessions following the relaxing of lockdown rules affecting sport.
But players will have to follow strict guidelines in relation to social distancing.
The England and Wales Cricket Board’s (ECB) stated on Friday that, provided social distancing rules are adhered to, nets and pitches could open once again.
Advice has been issued to clubs on what should and should not be done in order to maintain safety from coronavirus.
The ECB statement stressed: “No club should re-open their outdoor facilities if they feel unable to meet the requirements.”
A Cheadle CC spokesperson advised players they need to pre-book for practice sessions and abide by the additional practice rules.
Sessions are restricted to one hour and must be pre-booked with Dan Blood. Juniors need to be accompanied by an adult.
All participants must use their own kit including cricket balls and pad up and remove kit away from the practice area.
The club spokesperson warned: "Anyone not following the rules may be asked to leave".
