Advice for returning to the court safely

Man and woman playing squash

Last updated 14 May

Squash is back! From Monday 17th May England moves to Step 3 of the COVID Spring Recovery plan meaning you can play full court squash with different households. This means you can play multiple households without having to form a squash bubble or play modified versions of the game.

What can I play?

  • Adults and juniors from different households can play full court squash e.g best of five games with tie breaks, and singles and doubles.
  • Up to four adults or juniors can get on court at any time allowing for doubles.

Returning to your club/venue

Due to the UK Government restrictions still in place including social distancing, your club/venue will still need to implement safety protocols based on our Back to Squash guidelines.

Please be patient with your club/venue as they implement these procedures. Get in touch with them directly to find out if and when they will reopen and what their rules are, including booking procedures.

Do I still have to follow safety protocols?

Play safe, stay safe

Yes. You must continue to observe current UK Government advice on COVID-19 for your own health and safety, and everyone at your club/venue. Key things to remember are:

  • Maintain social distancing off court.
  • Wear a face covering off court.
  • Wash your hands before and after you play.

Below are some guidelines that you must follow in order to play to keep you and fellow players safe:
