ARCC Hospitality Guidance

Dear Players, Members and Supporters of ARCC,

With the first game rapidly approaching I am writing to advise you of the rules and regulations the Club will be adopting to enable us to play cricket and utilise the bar facility.

I will provide a summary and attach the full documents as appendices to this letter.

All documents will be available on the Club’s website shortly, as further point of reference.

The first thing to make clear is that we are being driven by two sets of guidance /rules. For cricket this is from the ECB and for the bar, the Government’s hospitality guidance.

Everyone over the age of 16 who comes onto club grounds must check in with the NHS Covid app on each visit. For those who want to have a drink, we reserve the right to ask if they have completed this, and have the right in law to check their device for confirmation.



The rules around playing cricket are basically the same as last year with no changing rooms/showers, bring your own tea, sanitation breaks every 6 overs etc.

However, there is one major change. We are not allowed to have spectators at cricket matches until 17 May 2021 at the earliest. There are some specific exceptions to this rule for carers of people with disabilities, and adults needing to supervise under-18s in a safeguarding role, and I’d refer you to the latest EBS guidance if you wish to look into this further.

I need, at this point to make clear, that the FA, RFU and other sports organisations have their own rule and regs and these may differ from the ECB’s and like it or not we are guided by the ECB.


We are allowed to open the bar and provide table service to seated patrons in what we are calling our Hospitality Zone. This zone including tables, will be outside the clubhouse and under the new pergola area. Here groups of up to 6 people or 2 households can sit and enjoy table service. In addition, there will be marked areas for you to bring your own seats and sit and be served.  From these areas you can watch any cricket that happens to be being played, as long as you are using the hospitality facility.  You may not bring your own food or drink to be consumed in these areas.

To use the hospitality facility, you must have checked in using the NHS app and order drinks and snacks from the bar through a Web app where you choose and pay for drinks on line and we will bring them to you. (This might not be ready for Sunday in which case a waiter will come and take your order and payment on an iPad).

We will be issuing a discount code for 1881 members to use and will rely on people’s honesty in applying these.

To be clear standing up in these zones is not allowed you must stay seated, buying a drink and going to the 2nd pitch to watch is not allowed. Anybody who does not follow these rules will be asked to leave the club grounds.

After play has finished all players will need to be in the hospitality zones and follow the guidelines on social distancing (rule of 6 or 2 households), and the rules set out above to have a drink.

We will be opening the hospitality area this Sunday the 18 April for the village knockout game against Cumnor and would welcome constructive feedback after the day.

We have decided not to open the bar on Fridays yet as we feel the rules on spectators and hospitality are too difficult to manage /enforce at training, but we will keep this under review and will update as soon as we are able.

I hope you will give your full support to the people who are doing their best to get the cricket and the bar open this early in the season in these difficult Covid times and if you have any issues you feel I need to know about please contact me directly or speak to a committee member.

Use of nets from April 2021

The nets at Aston Rownt Cricket Club are now open for Members to use on a private basis or within an organised training session. This page covers guidance for member bookings.

This decision to open the nets is based on information and guidance from the Government and the ECB. Recreational_Cricket_COVID_Guidance_in_England_Step-2_12_April.pdf (ecb.co.uk)

A formal booking system is being launched, but in the meantime, please continue to book in the same way as previously by contacting Club Chairman Simon Tremlin on 07780 672552.  Only once you have spoken to Simon and have a confirmed booking may you use the nets.  You must only access the nets through the correct entrance and will require a code for this.  Please do not attempt to gain access by any other method as this may cause damage for which you will be charged.

Please ensure you remain socially distanced from others using a different lane, and if attending during a training session please ensure you respect the rules of social distancing when at the bowler’s end.

Below are some key points:

  • Check for symptoms of COVID-19. In line with current guidance, if you are symptomatic, living in a household with a possible COVID-19 infection or if you are classified as extremely vulnerable on health grounds, you should remain at home and follow Government guidance.
  • Check in with the QR codes displayed at ARCC each time you attend to use the nets whether in an organised session or on a private basis.
  • Hands should be washed thoroughly before leaving home and on return. We suggest bringing hand sanitiser / wipes to use before and after your session.
  • All sessions must be booked in advance.
  • Net usage must follow the Government’s social distancing and ECB guidelines.
  • Players should bring their own equipment and should not be sharing with others.
  • For juniors a parent or adult member of the player’s household must be on site and available in case first aid needs to be administered.
  • There will be no access to toilet facilities at pavilion except when full formal training and matches are scheduled and the pavilion is open for toilet access only.
  • There is a first aid box (green) within the nets. Please do not remove this and advise a member of the committee if anything is used from it.  Please be advised this is for emergency use only so please respect this.  Details of emergency contacts are on the inside of the lid.
