Following the announcement on Monday 4th January 2021 by the Prime Minister, the Play Safe Guidelines negotiated by Petanque England (PE) on behalf of our sport have been suspended until further notice.
For CoBPC members this means:
- LSC is closed and all Club sessions at both LSC and Queen Square are once again suspended until further notice.
- Members are not permitted to enter LSC grounds and access to CoBPC terrains is prohibited.
As in Lockdown 1, individuals are allowed to take daily exercise but all forms of organised amateur sport, such as Pétanque, is not permitted. Specifically, this even includes games of Singles between two individuals from separate households or even from within a single household.
The PE has issued its own COVID update which provides fuller details on the current legislation and restrictions. This is here.
The Executive Committee will continue to monitor the situation and we will update you as soon as we have more information, More importantly, we hope everyone stays safe, keeps COVID free, and the vaccination programme runs to schedule!!
