' mean contender for the most delectable English cricket ground'



The wait is over!

As of Saturday 11 July, competitive 11-a-side cricket matches can take place – as well as training – with adaptations in place to mitigate the transmission risk of COVID-19.

In summary, TWCC can confirm that adult cricket fixtures will start this Saturday, youth training will begin on Wednesday 15 July, and some youth matches will take place from Sunday 19 July. 

The Committee has spent considerable time working on this plan. We have consulted widely, in the cricket world with the ECB and KCB, and lobbied our local MP.

A summary of the adaptations is listed below:

  • Individuals should undergo a personal symptom check prior to all activity and not take part if they demonstrate any COVID-19 symptoms.

  • All groups limited to a maximum of 30 people, including coaches and officials.

  • All activity should include regular hygiene breaks for participants' hands and the ball.

  • TWCC will keep a record of attendees at a match/session, including contact details, to support NHS Test and Trace.

  • Players should remain socially distanced at all times (wicketkeepers and slip fielders at 1m+).

  • Players should minimise handling of the ball in all activity, by limiting contact as it makes its way back to the bowler; no sweat or saliva should be added to the ball at any time.
