COVID Safety Precautions

Pall Mall and Woodcote Park

We are delighted that almost all the facilities in both clubhouses are now open again. For full details of current restrictions, please see the table below.

London has now moved to ‘Tier 2’ COVID-19 restrictions.

This means that people may no longer mix while at Pall Mall unless they are all from the same household or support bubble.

This applies to all social activities and informal business meetings.

Business meetings may still be held in formal settings. At Pall Mall, this means that business meetings may only be held in booked banqueting rooms or Simms Centre meeting rooms.

The Club’s reservations team is in the process of contacting all members with existing bookings who may be affected by these changes.

Woodcote Park currently remains in ‘Tier 1’ and is not affected by these changes so up to six people from different households may still meet. However, if you reside in a ‘Tier 2’ area and visit Woodcote Park, you should not mix inside with anybody who is not in your own household or support bubble. Please note that members who visit Woodcote Park from a ‘Tier 2’ area may meet in external areas, such as the golf courses and tennis courts, in accordance with the ‘rule of 6’.

The Club’s bars and restaurants are open, providing the excellent food and warm welcome members are used to. The Club’s restaurants, bars, lounges and sports facilities will close at 10.00pm each evening. Members must vacate the clubhouses by this time, unless staying overnight, in order to comply with the new legal requirement. Members staying overnight can relax in the Club Room or Club Lounge after 10.00pm and can order room service drinks to their bedrooms up until 11.00pm.

Following the recent announcement by the chancellor, the temporary reduction of VAT rates from 20 per cent to 5 per cent will remain in place at both clubhouses until 31 March 2021.

For members wishing to register their visit to the Club via the NHS COVID-19 app, QR codes have been placed throughout the clubhouses to facilitate this.

So that you can enjoy your Club secure in the knowledge that it is the safest possible environment, there are five simple steps we are asking you to take when you visit the clubhouses.

- book in advance if you know what you want to do
- check your temperature when you arrive
- wear a face covering
- follow the signs
- and – pay by card as we are not accepting cash.

We look forward to seeing you in Pall Mall or at Woodcote Park very soon.
