Chobham CC - response to Covid19

23 Mar 2020

We hope that you and your families are healthy and adjusting to the circumstances we all find ourselves in as a result of Covid19.  Obviously, at times such as this, the forthcoming season at Chobham CC isn’t likely to be at the top of anyone’s priorities, but we wanted to let you know the Club’s position.


Following the ECB’ statement last week (below for ease of reference), we have ceased our winter nets and all use of the ground and pavilion until further notice. This includes all coaching, both small groups and 1-2-1s as we seek to support social distancing.  Our dedicated ground and facilities teams have continued to prepare the ground so that if and when we are able to play cricket this season, we will be in a good place to get games on as quickly as possible.



The Leagues which our teams play in have been in contact to let us know that they intend to run competitions this season, but obviously until the situation regarding Covid-19 improves, they are unable to give further detail.


In respect of subscriptions, we are aware that some members have already paid, and that requests for junior subscriptions will be sent via the membership database next month. We understand that some of our members may be experiencing financial hardship as a result of the crisis, but in order to alleviate the immediate financial pressure on the Club and safeguard the Club’s future, we are asking members who are able, to pay their subscriptions as they fall due. To the extent that the season is significantly curtailed or lost, then we plan to organise a refund.  Clearly, where members are experiencing financial hardship or uncertainty, this is very much understood and we will not, at this point be following-up on any unpaid subscriptions. This request has been agreed by the adult and junior representatives of the Committee and applies to all membership categories.

Outstanding fees for winter nets will be covered in a separate e-mail.


We wish everyone well and will be in contact when we have further updates from the ECB/our respective Leagues.
