Covid 19

Back to Squash guidance

The UK Government has announced that we will move to Step 3 of the COVID Spring Recovery plan on Monday 17 May and Sport England have confirmed that squash clubs and venues can reintroduce full court squash for adults and juniors.

Following the updated rules for indoor gyms and leisure facilities, squash clubs and venues are able to offer the following permitted activity:

  • Players can get on court with multiple households and play full court squash e.g. best of five with tie-breaks, and singles and doubles (squash bubbles and modified versions not required). The maximum number of players on court allowed are 4 adults or children.

  • Coach-led sessions can take place in any number (within the maximum venue capacity limit) but the maximum number of players on court allowed is 4 adults or 6 children. Coaches are allowed on court and are not included in the total number of players on court. 

  • Coaches can provide Out-of-School Setting activities to all children (6 max per court), with no restrictions on the total number in attendance. 

  • Spectators are allowed to return, but must observe maximum of six people or two households as well as social distancing rules and wear face coverings. 

  • Indoor bar/restaurant/cafe areas are allowed to open, and must follow the current UK Government guidance
