2nd UPDATE 13/6

Training Facilities Update

1) Up to 6 people can now use a batting cage  or net booking (for example a parent and 5 children) subject to following social distancing rules and using good old common sense

2) A net will be available to book from  Monday 14th June. This will be available to book in the same way as the batting cage, but will be available from 2pm on weekdays. Club Level 2 coaches & team captains may book the net outside of these times.

  3) The bowling machine will be available for use at sessions with ECB UKCC2 QUALIFIED COACHES ONLY.  Appropriate gloves must be worn at all times by the operator and/or assembler. Batsmen should use their feet to collect together the balls then allow space for the operator to collect.


Sway Cricket Club has decided to re-open some of its facilities on a limited and booked-only basis.

Before making a booking, please read the following rules and guidelines. A request for a booking will be deemed as acceptance of these rules.

To enable Sway CC to open these facilities and keep them open the following strict guidelines must be adhered to:

  • No facilities may be used unless booked in accordance with the following rules.

  • Bookings will only be accepted from Members and/or parents/guardians (if on behalf of a family and/or junior members). The booker who will be deemed to be a Club Representative should be present during all bookings involving junior members unless another Club Representative is appointed by agreement and present on site e.g. a coach or another parent. 

  • Only with members of your household or with up to 5 other persons whilst keeping two metres apart at all times. Parents of youngsters must be present unless the adult in charge holds a current Sway CC DBS certificate

  • Social distancing of at least two metres must be maintained at all times (unless all participants are members of the same household).

  • Strictly follow the displayed signage

  • The pavilion and toilets are closed and are out of bounds

  • We recommend using your own equipment if possible. If equipment is being shared, please follow UK Government’s guidance on the sharing of equipment. The Club is unable at this time to provide balls, bats or pads etc but stumps will be available

  • No saliva or sweat should come into contact with the ball at any time.

  • Wash hands at home before and after using the outdoor facilities. Bring your own hand sanitizer where possible. Sanitising equipment will be available on site.
