Relaxation of COVID restrictions

Monday 19 July 2021

As we move out of the lockdown restrictions that have been in place for many months we are sure you all want to get back to playing stoolball with more freedom. We have identified some key guidance for you from Sport England:
  • Restrictions have been lifted on numbers participating in activities indoors and outdoors.
  • Stoolball can take place without set restrictions.
  • All sports facilities can re-open including the ancillary services.
  • Capacity limits have been lifted.
  • Organised sports can have uncapped spectators.

Please note however you must check the current rules at any venue they use as they may well put in place their own temporary regulations as they see fit. We ask you to kindly follow those regulations. 

Note further guidance is available on the Government website including how to reduce transmission when you are exercising. 

If you would like help with temporary regulations you would like to put in place for your club please let us know and we can help you establish them.

Mental Health & Wellbeing Hub from Sussex Cricket

Tuesday 26 January 2021

The COVID-19 pandemic has threatened our personal safety, disrupted our daily routines, uprooted our lives and shaken our world. It isn’t easy to maintain mental wellbeing, personal resilience and optimism when we are surrounded and affected by such unsettling uncertainty.

For anyone that needs to find hope and support through the power of shared experiences, Sussex Cricket has developed its new Mental Health & Wellbeing Hub, a free, online resource designed to help.

Completely free to use and totally anonymous with no registration required, the mobile-optimised platform has been created with the support and approval of Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and developed in partnership with Frog Systems.
