After Pauls recent email maybe not surprisingly there was a large proportion of you wishing to do something, if not to simply kick a ball again or just to catch up with friends.
As a result, I have put together an interim lockdown walking football program that will be Covid-19 aware and will be restricted to only 5 participants, as per the current government restrictions. These sessions will be with Nell and will focus on relaxed drills/ball work at £5 pay and play. I have tried to pick sessions to try to accommodate as many as possible in varied timeslots under the restrictions we currently face. This is what I have come up with initially, on a trial basis, obviously this can change depending on demand and then we’ll see how it goes.
Please note, I’m pleased to report that Beechcroft fencing is now complete so I am able to offer sessions at both sites.
MONDAY at SOLIHULL 3 sessions 11:00 – 12:00, 12:15 – 13:15, 13:30 – 14:30.
MONDAY at SOLIHULL 2 sessions 19:00 – 20:00, 20:10 – 21:10, (LADIES ONLY)
MONDAY at BEECHCROFT 1 session 20:30 – 21:30.
TUESDAY at BEECHCROFT 3 sessions 11:00 – 12:00, 12:15 – 13:15, 13:30 – 14:30.
WEDNESDAY at SOLIHULL 3 Sessions 11:00 – 12:00, 12:15 – 13:15, 13:30 – 14:30.
THURSDAY at BEECHCROFT 4 sessions 10:00 – 11:00, 11:15 – 12:15, 12:30 – 13:30, 19:00 – 20:00.
FRIDAY at BEECHCROFT 3 Sessions 11:00 – 12:00, 12:15 – 13:15, 13:30 – 14:30.
FRIDAY at BEECHCROFT 1 session 19:30 – 20:30, (LADIES ONLY)
FRIDAY at SOLIHULL 1 Session 19:00 – 20:00
All these proposed sessions will commence from Monday 22nd June.
Now, there is only one fair way to determine who comes to the sessions and that is in the shape of a booking system. Since last week we have been busy setting up a booking system, that does almost everything we need it to do, so therefore if you want to book on any of the sessions above you will need to set yourself up and use our booking system using the following link…. https://bookwhen.com/mpsports … we understand that this will not suit everyone but we really do not have any other solution but it does bring us up to date somewhat. It may be a good time to acquaint yourself with this system as me may continue with it when we are back to normal or when we are eased further out of the lockdown by the Government. As I said earlier, groups are restricted to a maximum of 5 but also a minimum of 4 if we do not get 4 or more then the session MAY be cancelled.
Couple of points to note on the booking system, you only have to enter all your details on your first booking, set a password for ease of future use. There is a waiting list option if one of the sessions are full. It is therefore imperative that you cancel a booking if you can’t make it so someone on the waiting list is invited. You can cancel a booking via the email you would have received when you booked on originally. We will be noting people that book and do not turn up!! I attach a sheet with all the booking help links if you have any questions.
The clubhouses will not be accessible to any players other than to use the toilet and all players are asked not to turn up to early for the group and to leave when finished. Again, we are adhering to the current restrictions so we would also ask for players not come to watch sessions that they are not booked into.
Obviously this has all proved to be a bit of a logistical nightmare but we feel it is important to provide some sort of service if only to help those feeling the strain of these rather strange times! Please bear with us if certain things need amending or correcting.
