Wheathampstead Cricket Club News story

WCC COVID-19 Update II

18 Mar 2020


Dear Members,

Further to my email yesterday, the ECB have just released a statement recommending the
suspension of all recreational cricket.


"This extends to training, pre-season friendlies and any associated cricket activity"

The Herts League have also issues a statement


The club is in good health, and we will get through this.
We will be in touch again when we have more news from the ECB or League.






In light of the current Coronavirus situation, I'd like to update you all on the impact  
on Cricket at Wheathampstead.

Colts Winter Nets

Following the UK Governments announcement last night regarding limiting non-essential
social interaction, the club has taken the decision to suspend all junior winter training
sessions with immediate affect. We know this will come as a disappointment to our many 
junior players, but the welfare of our players, coaches and their families is paramount.  

Adult Winter Nets


We're waiting to hear from Herts Uni, so these, at present can continue, at each individuals own risk.
Please follow Public Health England guidelines in ensuring hands are washed. 
No sharing of gloves, helmets or balls.

League Cricket (Junior & Senior)


We are waiting to hear from the ECB and / or the Herts League. They are monitoring the situation.
I imagine there will be at a minimum disruption to the start of the season.
We will keep you all informed when we know more.

Golf Day - 27th March

We're in contact with Aldwickbury GC and separate email has been sent to those signed up.

Quiz Night - 25th April

Cancelled until further notice.

Other Socials

We will make decisions on a case by case basis nearer the time.

We will continue to monitor the Government's advice and also that from the ECB and Herts Cricket 
and update you accordingly.

Please stay safe during these difficult times.
WCC Committee
