Covid-19 (Updated 5th January)
The move to Tier 4 lasted less than a week and, from January 5th, restrictions have been tightened further and we are now in a national lockdown. The guidance now states “Outdoor sports courts, outdoor gyms, golf courses, outdoor swimming pools, archery/driving/shooting ranges and riding arenas must close. Organised outdoor sport for disabled people is allowed to continue”. This means the terrain at Burridge is now closed.
The links below will be updated shortly to show the new rules and guidance:

Government Guidance -National Lockdown: Stay at Home (05/01/21)
Club Temporary Rules (3/12/20)

Cobbetts Winter Indoor League

We are sorry to have to confirm that current government restrictions mean that we will be unable to run our Indoor League this year. This will probably not come as a surprise to anyone! We delayed this decision as long as possible, even holding a ‘plan B’ in reserve (to start the competition in January) but reluctantly we have come to the conclusion it just will not be possible this year. We want to thank everyone who has supported us in the past and very much hope to see you all there again next year.
