England Squash Corona Virus Statement
We are pleased to share with you the following from our NGB:
Following the formal announcement by the UK Government last week, we have cancelled all sanctioned competition activity up to the end of March.
For further information & updates please visit www.englandsquash.com to find our latest coronavirus statement. Our website is continually updated as we hear more information about how UK Government advice continues to affect the squash community.
Following last week’s announcement by the UK Government we now know restrictions on indoor sport are only likely to begin to be lifted from the 12th April. As with previous lockdowns we will receive details of the easing of restrictions at the same time as the general public, and will require some time to adapt our plans and guidelines accordingly. Our communications will focus upon what we know, when we hear officially, and we will continue to avoid speculation, which creates confusion.
