Net code

Please note that following the earlier reminder about net protocol, the net entry code has been updated.  If you are organising a session or have a pre-booked net, please ensure you have the up to date code.

Net Rules – reminder – UPDATE

Below is a reminder of net rules guidance which, save for the limit on households, has not fundamentally changed.  The nets remain closed for general use and are only available for:

1. Organised sessions; or

2. If booked online in advance.

Please do not attend the nets unless for one of the above.

MMCC nets have reopened but everyone is reminded of the need to follow some basic rules.  As well as the Protocol (see here), please remember:

  • Social distancing rules must be observed at all times
  • Nets are for the use of members only (save for the exception below)
  • No non-members are permitted to use the nets
  • Up to 2 households can share a net
  • All net sessions must be booked in advance
  • A member can attend for one to one coaching but only with an ECB qualified coach.  That coach has to hold a curent ECB coaching qualification, level 2 or above, but does not need to be a member of the club, must be coaching a member of the club, and must adhere to all guidelines and the club’s own Protocol.

Please abide by these rules and help us keep the nets open and users safe.

Thanks.

Senior nets moved to Friday at 6:35

This week’s senior nets have been moved to Friday at 6:35pm as the first team are playing in a T20 clash at Radyr this Wednesday (6:00pm start).

Junior training will be finishing at 6:30 on Friday so the field will be free from 6:30 but there will still be juniors and parents at the ground, and seniors should take steps to ensure social distancing is maintained.

Friday night sessions – message to parents

Please see attached notice which is also being emailed to parent contacts.  Please can you let the club know in advance, if you have not already done so, that your child will be attending on Friday – and please make sure you have read the notice.

Spectators and visitors

As per our message yesterday, in order to comply with Cricket Wales requirements, we cannot allow spectators access to the ground during cricket matches or activities (practice sessions).

The club is very much aware of its position in the community and that a large number of our members and supporters would like to attend the ground now that we are able to play again.  Whilst you can stand outside the fence and watch from the lane, you cannot enter the ground or use the facilities (such as toilets).  Any breaches the conditions imposed could see clubs being forced to stop playing.  Indeed, if a large number were to gather on the lane, it could be considered a “mass gathering” and that would cause us considerable problems.

We are hopeful this arrangement will be a short term measure.  However, in the short term, you cannot come on to the ground, cannot use the facilities, and our preference would be that we do not get people congregating on the lane / bank for the reasons above.

We very much hope you will support us in our efforts to get cricket played again, respect the rules which have been imposed on us, and understand our reticence to see large numbers of people gathering to watch the game – even from outside the playing area.

Many thanks for your understanding and we look forward to being able to welcome everyone properly back to the club very shortly.

Membership and match fees – update

Following a committee meeting on Tuesday, it has been agreed that we will not charge a formal membership fee for the remainder of the season but will seek to introduce, from our new financial year in September, a monthly payment scheme which will incorporate membership fees, winter nets and 12th man club (optional).  Details will follow when finalised.

In the meantime, we will charge an enhanced match fee for the balance of the season for senior cricket, £3 per game.  This charge will apply to senior matches and is to be paid by seniors and juniors alike to assist with expenses such as cleaning costs.  Obviously there will be no teas so no additional charges.  Participants’ details will be taken and you will receive a note from the club at the end of the season setting out the number of games played and the sum owed.  This will enable us to avoid handling cash.

Juniors who are not playing senior cricket are being asked to consider making a voluntary £5 donation which will cover the rest of the season.  Again, payment to be made via bank transfer.

If, before the season ends, we are able to offer some kind of bar service, our contactless payment system will be available to allow payments, including membership, to be made using the card machine.
