From Tuesday 1 September squash clubs and venues in England are able to move to Phase 2 in our return to play plan, allowing players to form ‘squash bubbles’ and play full-court matches, although modifications and additional hygiene measures will be required:
Your club/venue’s introduction of 'squash bubbles'Clubs and venues are working hard to understand and interpret both the Government and the England Squash return to play guidelines, to assess whether they can move safely to Phase 2 of the return to play phases, based on their own unique circumstances.
Please be patient with your club/venue as they implement safety procedures to keep you and other players safe. Get in touch with them directly to find out if and when they will move to Phase 2 of the phased return to play, or indeed reopen if they haven’t yet been able to. Check what their rules are – including booking procedures – and whether they are operating reduced opening hours.
Be mindful that your club/venue may not be able to meet the measures required to keep their staff, volunteers and members safe, and should they choose to remain closed, please respect their decision.

The government announced on 9th July that indoor sporting facilities may be able to reopen as of the 25th July. England Squash have now published guidance for clubs and players on how to facilitate at least some level of return to court while adhering to the safety guidelines issued by the Government. Please check the England Squash website using the link below for more information and updates.
This does give players the chance to hit a ball again, albeit not a full game other than with members of your household or those in your support bubble.
Let’s be positive even though we are going through unprecedented times, we can all try and get back on court to keep fit and support our clubs.
