ECB July - Return to Cricket Guidance

Dear all,


Following the latest update from the UK Government, the ECB is pleased to announce the return of recreational cricket in England, signalling a progression from Step 3 to Step 4 of the ECB’s roadmap to return for the recreational game.

This also allows us to advise that clubs who have previously run All Stars Cricket can now do so again (we will release specific guidance for All Stars Cricket next week).

We thank you for all of your efforts in helping cricket return.


ECB has maintained a constant dialogue with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS) throughout this process and we have prepared a plan to support clubs and individuals as they prepare for the return of recreational cricket, including details of adjustments which should be made to respect hygiene and social distancing requirements.

That plan covers a number of areas of the game, including:

  • Pre-match adaptations regarding transport and symptom checking.
  • In-game adaptations applying to social distancing measures, hygiene, match officials and the use of equipment.
  • Post-game adaptations, including the potential use of club facilities.
  • Advice for coaches specific to individual sessions and junior cricket.


To support this, please also find here an eight step infographic, and an infographic for pre-match, in-game and post-game adaptations (Click the pictures for full files)




ECB Club Support

The ECB have set up a resource base to support clubs as they look to develop a gateway to the self-help support resources available to help cricket clubs meet the ever changing demands and challenges they face.
