A letter to Hambledon U7/U9 Colts and parents

Dear Hambledon Under 7 and Under 9 Colts

We have had a difficult summer, because of COVID-19, and we hope you are all well and safe. We are now in a position to start some colts training next week and following weeks, starting on Sunday 12 July for the Under 7s and Under 9s. New arrangements are as follows:

Numbers have to be limited because of the rules over COVID-19, so please email Andrew to book a space. Andrew and the other coaches will be making every endeavour to ensure everyone gets a fair share of the slots over the next weeks. Here are a few points for guidance:

  • Please do not turn up on Sunday mornings without booking a space
  • All colts should come changed ready in training kit, The changing rooms will not be in use
  • Please can parents be prepared to assist the coaches to run the sessions safely – we can’t do it without you!
  • Toilets are available, there will be a one way system through the clubhouse
  • Suitable cleaning arrangements have been put in place, but please bring some hand sanitiser with you
  • Simple bar arrangements are in place and the Hambledon Blue kit will be on sale most evenings as well

Many of you have very kindly made a donation to the club to help us through this most unusual of summers. There will be no charges for these training sessions, but if you attend, it would be much appreciated if you can make a donation to the club, if you haven’t already 

So, please:

  • book a slot for a training session
  • please say when you book if you can assist running the session
  • please say what year your child is in and whether he/she has done any cricket before
  • please be patient if you can’t attend every week

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Theresa Pratt
Colts Co-ordinator
