We look forward to welcoming you to Chippenham Cricket Club.

Please read carefully the information below so you know what to expect and the conditions under which activity is allowed to take place. ​Anyone who is unable to operate under the terms listed below will be asked to leave the ground. Please also be aware that by leaving your home to play and practice cricket does create an increased risk of you coming into contact with someone with the virus. Therefore it is important that you follow the guidelines to protect yourself and others.

During the Session/Match at the club 

  1. People attending practice sessions/matches who are not participating in the activities should not gather in more than groups of thirty.
