COVID-19 Guidance for Cricket in Wales at Alert Level 1 30/07/21


We are pleased to announce the latest guidance for recreational cricket in Wales, permissible from 17th July. 

This document outlines guidance for clubs and participants with the Welsh Government confirming the move to Alert Level 1.  This means that a number of legal restrictions regarding social contact and participating in regulated gatherings and meeting other people will be removed or eased.


The summary key points are:

1. Legal group size restrictions outdoors are removed (including spectator number restrictions), however venues should still exercise caution and risk assess the number of people who can reasonably attend and circulate around the facility. Venue owners/managers should still take all
reasonable measures to limit the transmission of the virus.

2. A maximum of 200 people standing and 1,000 seated can take part in indoor organised activities and events as part of a regulated gathering.

3. Remember No Participants= No Game. NHS Wales Test, Trace, Protect is still in place and selfisolation of both COVID positive individuals and close contacts remains a requirement.

4. Changing rooms can be used, however this should be risk assessed and capacity limited to enable social distancing and participants should limit time spent in close contact with others in such facilities.

5. Hospitality is permitted subject to standing restrictions.

6. Free NHS lateral flow testing is available to clubs and The ECB encourages clubs to take this up.

7. No domestic travel restrictions. Participants should continue to follow Government advice on international travel for any fixtures/ tournaments.

8. Car sharing is not recommended with people who are not part of your household or extended household. Where it cannot be avoided face coverings should be worn
