COVID-19 and Thames Ditton Cricket Club

We all know that Covid-19 is turning everyone’s lives’ upside down.

And in the middle of this turmoil, the first priority for us all is that we stay safe.

This is not the first place for you to check information on how you can stay safe, but here is a link to the Government Covid-19 page and the NHS one just in case we have reminded you of a piece of information that would help you now.

Instead, we will use this page to post information about how the response to the virus, including the lockdown is impacting our cricket club.

Here are the two club updates we have already sent out and some additional news from government and cricket’s governing bodies that may be of interest:
