Ormskirk Cricket club Outdoor Nets 




Following on from the recent Guidance (ECB Guidance) published by the ECB, OCC will be opening their nets for use by 2019 and 2020 members – both senior and junior - from FRIDAY 22nd May.


Please note the following:-

  • SYMPTOMS: If you have symptoms of Covid-19, if anyone in your household does or if you are classified as extremely vulnerable please STAY AT HOME: Do not use or attempt to use the nets.

  • BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL: You will not be permitted to use the nets without booking using the procedure set out below.

  • PRIORITY TO MEMBERS: Priority will be given to members who have paid their subscriptions for 2020.

  • WHAT DOES PRIORITY MEAN: Priority means that if at any time up to 8pm on the day before your booking a paid member requests a booking, that booking will be taken and the booking of the unpaid user will be cancelled. To guarantee that a booking is not lost – and to support the Club – please join up on the Club website (OCC Membership).

  • SOCIAL DISTANCING: Social distancing of at least 2 metres must be observed at all times (unless you are from the same household).

  • LANES IN USE: Only Lanes 1 and 3 will be available for use. Lane 2 (the middle lane) will remain out of use at all times.

  • NUMBERS: no more than 2 people may use the net at one time if from different households and no more than 3 if from the same household.

  • TIMING: each session lasts 50 minutes with a 10 minute break inbetween each session to avoid contact between users.

  • EQUIPMENT: users must bring and use their own equipment that should be kept outside the nets when not being used. Do not share equipment – including balls – if using netting with someone from another household. No toilet facilities will be available.

  • FACILITIES: the Clubhouse will not be open and so there will not be any toilet facilities available for use.

  • SANITISING: please bring and use your own sanitiser at the start and end of your session. The gate to the nets will be unlocked and can be opened bu pushing with your arm. If you have to use your hand please sanitise after.

  • COMPLIANCE: failure to observe the above may result further bookings being refused or the nets being closed.



  • To begin with the nets will be available as follows:

Mondays: 3pm - 7pm

Fridays: 3pm - 7pm

Saturdays: 10am –  3pm

  • Bookings can be made up to 1 week in advance with one booking per group per week. Additional bookings may be made the day before if there is availablity.

  • A Club representative will be present on site when the nets are open.

  • One-to-one coaching sessions may be available (at a preliminary rate £15 per session for paid members - £25 per session for non-members). Contact Bill Rankin (wkrankin@btinternet.com) for further information.

  • Follow the link below to book your net.

PLEASE NOTE that to accommodate a small software issue the booking times offered may show as, for example 3.58pm for 49 minutes. All bookings start on the hour and last for 50 minutes with a 10 minute gap inbetween.
