Ivanhoe Social Club

COVID-19 Update

Following further clarification from the Government we are pleased to inform you that with immediate effect we can now permit play of both Snooker and Darts in the Club.

In order to allow play of both Snooker and Darts we MUST follow COVID secure guidelines.

We have therefore completed a full risk assessment in line with Government requirements and as a result several new protocols will be introduced.

These include for example:

- snooker will be permitted on tables 1, 3 and 5 ONLY

- snooker singles games ONLY will be permitted

- darts will be allowed ONLY in the lounge

Complete details of all the procedures in relation to social distancing and cleaning regimes for equipment will be explained in full at time of play. The measures being put in place are designed for everyone’s safety and must be followed at all times.

Just to remind all Members the Club opening times currently are:

Lunchtime Evening

Monday to Friday Closed 6pm to 10pm

Saturdays 12pm to 2pm 6pm to 10pm

Sundays 12pm to 2pm 7pm to 10pm

Please also note that there is now increased seating available outdoors part of which is covered.

We continue to ensure we are operating within Government guidelines for the protection of all Members, guests and staff and encouragingly all feedback from Members after the first 3 days of reopening has been entirely positive.

We look forward to welcoming you all back very soon.

COVID-19 Update

The news you’ve all been waiting for!

The following opening times will apply until further notice:

Lunchtime Evening

Monday to Friday Closed 6pm to 10pm

Saturdays 12pm to 2pm 6pm to 10pm

Sundays 12pm to 2pm 7pm to 10pm

We have worked long and hard to put in place all necessary requirements to enable us to open whilst ensuring that we can safely meet Government guidelines to protect us all, Members, guests and staff alike.

However, as I am sure you will all appreciate this will, at least for the foreseeable future, mean that you will notice some differences when you visit the Club. None of the changes are however designed to and should not in any way reduce your enjoyment.

In these challenging times we will be relying on all of you to follow the new procedures we are implementing. They are designed for everyone’s safety and with your help will hopefully ensure that we do not have to close our doors again!

A brief but not exhaustive summary of the main changes is:

- enhanced outdoor seating area

- everyone must wash hands thoroughly before entering bar areas

- no standing at bar

- seating arranged with required social distancing

- in line with Government regulations no snooker allowed at present

- in line with Government regulations no darts allowed at present

- payment by card preferably using your pre-loaded Membership card

We are all on a steep learning curve and whilst we have tried to envisage all possible scenarios it is almost certain that the procedures we are proposing will evolve and be modified as we move forward together.

If we ALL use our common sense, we will go a long way to ensuring everyone’s safety!

We’ve missed each and every one of you and look forward to welcoming you back after what seems like an eternity.
