Change to Sports Sections – April 2021

PLEASE NOTE: As from the 1st April 2021, The Tennis Section and Squash Section have been merged into a Racket Sports Section. Members will be able to use both Squash AND Tennis facilities under the terms of their membership.

Covid-19 Update – July 19th 2021

For Risbygate Sports Club, this means the rule of 6 no longer applies indoors and any number can now gather. The wearing of face coverings is now a matter of personal choice, and table service is no longer required in the club bar. Showers and changing rooms are open, and the ‘one-in-one-out’ arrangement no longer applies to the toilet facilities.

We appreciate that some members will remain cautious. We will continue ‘fogging’ the building, and all hand sanitiser dispensers, wipes etc. will remain in place if you wish to use them.

We remind members that should they display any symptoms, they should of course seek the appropriate medical advice and refrain from visiting the club.
