Please keep checking this page for the latest Coventry & North Warwickshire Squash & Racketball COVID situation.

It’s the news we’ve been waiting for - Monday 19 July will see an end to almost all COVID-19 restrictions in England which affects how squash clubs/venues and coaches should continue to operate. 

So, what does this mean for squash?
All current restrictions for squash will be lifted from Monday 19 July, including how many people are allowed to mix inside venues.

While this is great news for the sport, cases of COVID-19 remain high and continue to rise, and the Government have stressed that we all must take personal responsibility to take steps to manage and reduce the risk of transmission when returning to more typical daily activities like squash.

Play safe, stay safe
While we're all excited to get back on court without any restrictions, we also need to ensure we all stay safe. In line with UK Government guidance, we are encouraging players to consider the health and safety of themselves and others and continue to recommend the following:

  • wear a face covering when inside a club/venue mixing with others you do not usually mix with (except when playing)
  • use hand sanitiser where it is provided, and wash your hands before and after games
  • do not wipe your hands on the walls.

We appreciate some clubs, coaches and players may still wish to take a more cautious approach and we ask the community to be respectful and considerate of people’s wishes.

New recommendations and support for clubs, venues and coaches for continuing to deliver a safe return to play are available now on the England Squash hub.
