Return To Play Update

21/07/21: A message from EFA Chairman Chris Davies.

Dear all,

I am writing to confirm that under the guidelines operational as from 19th July 2021, there are no longer any government restrictions on where and when anyone can play fives.

This is clearly very good news and I hope that many of you will enjoy increasing opportunities to play in coming weeks and months.


I echo the government’s recommendation and encouragement to us all to continue to exercise caution and common sense in all we take on. It is your personal responsibility to decide whether the time and place of a proposed match is suitable for you. No one should feel pressured in to playing if you have concerns about you own safety.


Different venues for the sport will also continue to impose their own practices and restrictions. You will need to comply with these at all times.

Further information, details and updates on venues are available from the EFA.

Keep safe.

Yours sincerely,

CJD signature

Chris Davies

Chairman, Eton Fives Association
