Covid-19 - Highfield Squash

Main menu:


Until August 10 our squash in Highfield will be limited to solo drills and socially distanced routines and the dressing rooms and showers should not be used. Under revised government public health advice you will have to wait until that date for match play and access to changing rooms and showers.

It’s really important that before you play you read the documents below to know what is required so that we can all stay safe and well and that we don't do anything to risk the health of others by adding to the spread of the virus. It would not be a good outcome if we were to be closed for breaches discovered during an inspection.
  1. Since the documents above were created there has been an update: All players must confirm within the 24 hours before their match that they are well enough to play and that they do not present a risk to others in attending the club. This must be done before every match and you'll find a button for it on the top left of your booking page. 
  2. Until we have a better understanding of how busy the courts might be and to reduce the time spent by members at the club (to reduce the chances of infection in an enclosed space), players will be restricted to the use of one x 40 minute court each day. This will be reviewed after three weeks. 
  3. For the foreseeable future we will not be able to allow visitors to the club.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: One of the Irish Squash Return to Squash Protocols is a requirement for clubs to supervise the implementation of those Covid-19 Protocols. We need to have people at the courts who will help members to comply with requirements so we are asking members that while they are at the club to play their own match they agree to check that:

  1. the sanitising gel and wipes are available
  2. your club mates are observing social distancing
  3. the courts are not in use in the 10 or 15 minute intervals between bookings
  4. that players don't linger at the club when finished
  5. that the players on court match the names on the booking sheet

This can all be done with a few minutes' walk through the corridor when you arrive and before you leave. You would text or e-mail any observations in confidence to our Covid-19 CommitteeIf you can help as desribed please enter your name and e-mail address below. Your help will be greatly appreciated by all as it will allow us to re-open and remain open! Some members may prefer not to do this and we fully respect that position.
