Play suspended – COVID Update from the President

Hi All,

In line with SA Gov restrictions all cricket and event participation has been cancelled as of midnight last night (17 November 2020). This includes all games, training and events.

I have discussed with Fern and all our bookings for the two week period are now cancelled and will be reviewed in line with any updated government restriction advice.

I apologise for the inconvenience, however as a community club we are bound by the SA Gov community guidelines. As President it is my duty to ensure, as much as practical, the safety of all those involved with the club and any new people we are introducing to our club and facility.

I understand the current outbreak has caused disappointment with training, games and event cancellations, however I ask everyone to understand how community transmissible this virus is. In the first wave SA reacted outstandingly and therefore, compared to many other states and most countries, have enjoyed greater freedom and “normal lives” requiring only a few weeks of lockdown, with this hopefully once in a lifetime virus.

Again, I understand your disappointment, however please comprehend the bigger picture. We will keep you updated here as we progress through this new second wave of restrictions.

Yours in sport,
Lionel Markwort
