HARPENDEN SPORTING FACILTY THREATENED WITH CLOSURE AND LOSS TO COMMUNITY

Harpenden Rugby Football Club (HRFC) has purported to serve a notice to quit on Harpenden Rugby Football Club Squash Club (the Squash Club) requiring it to vacate the Squash Club Premises in April this year. The Squash Club intends to challenge HRFC’s attempts to evict it. However, in the meantime, the Squash Club’s 250 individual, family and junior members are being threatened with an eviction, which could destroy its 53 years’ legacy.

Please read the full statment below. We would also encourage you to sign and share Henley's Petition which is mentioned in the Statment.

Harpenden Junior Squash Club continues to grow from strength to strength despite the restrictions with Covid19 and the threat of closure!!

The threat of closure on April 2022 is real but we still continue to see the juniors grow and expand and have added a new slot to cater for the increase in numbers.

Previously we had three sessions at:

15:30 - Under 9’s

16:15 - 9-12yrs Intermediates

17:00 - 13 + Advanced

The new slots are as follows:

15:30 - Under 9’s

16:15 - 9-12yrs Intermediates

17:00 - 9-12 yrs Advanced (invite only)

17:45 - 13+ Advanced

If anyone is interested in joining this thriving community please contact the Club Coach Stephen Lloyd on 07817 182337.

Do not forget to support our SOS campaign to Save our Club!!

One of the juniors has set this up himself to keep our club alive so we continue to see ‘Harpenden Juniors’ grow and expand in the future..

COVID 19 CLUB PROTOCOLS

5th April, 2021

Now that we are moving out of the Covid-19 lockdown your Club Committee, with guidance from England Squash and the Government, has given thought to the best practices that we would like all members to adopt for the foreseeable future. This will ensure that we continue to provide an environment where we reduce the risks of spreading the Coronavirus .

 

As every member will appreciate, we all play only because we want to and at our own risk. In these difficult times however, and in order to minimise the risks for all members, we would ask everyone to accept that by playing at the club at the current time you are agreeing to adhere to the following. If you don’t feel able to accept these protocols, then please don’t play! Also if you are concerned about playing, then please don’t play. However, if you are shielding or are considered to be in the vulnerable category, contact your committee to discuss playing during the day at specially selected times.

 

As everyone will know, the way the Club operates it is not possible to “police” compliance, but with goodwill, cooperation and common sense we can hopefully all begin to enjoy our sport again as safely as possible. The committee will not hesitate to take action if members do not adhere to the players’ agreement.
