COVID-19 SQUASH SA UPDATE PROTOCOL

As we all slow down and take time to review the year, Squash South Africa request that with the
steadily increasing COVID positive numbers, that you be safe, take responsibility for your own health
and that of those around you. We further echo the President in his family meeting last night, when
we do want to see you all safely back and healthy next year (this won’t be the last Christmas for our
players, friends and family).
The current National State of Disaster remains at Level 1. To that end, we remind you that the
following criteria remain in place for all squash (this includes returning to Squash in the New Year).
All COVID Protocols Remain in place as follows;
● Screening on entry remains mandatory (clubs to keep these records for 6 months),
● Total Numbers in a venue are limited to 50% of capacity or a maximum of 100 persons
(whichever is smaller),
● Masks are to be worn at all times (excluding whilst playing your match),
● Sanitizer is still required in the club (provided by the club),
● Social distancing rules remain in place
● Regular cleaning protocols for the clubs / facility to remain in place,
● Curfews are 10pm to 4am (staff can then cash-up and clean, etc, to make sure they’re home
by 11pm).
● Food (hot and cold) may still be sold according to Food & Beverage criteria and
● The sale of liquor is strictly governed by the terms of the facility’s liquor license.
● Breaching any of these rules will result in the license being revoked.
● Should you exhibit any of the symptoms, please self-isolate immediately and if they
worsen, seek medical guidance),
● All players taking part in squash activities are required to be paid up members of
Squash SA (Player Registration, on SportyHQ). Your expiry of your 2019 registration
has been extended to April 2021.
All the best, stay safe and see you in the New Year
