This Policy was formally adopted by the General Committee on 12/05/16.

Any disciplinary or complaint hearings in connection with a breach of these rules shall be dealt with in accordance with the disciplinary procedure as set out in the Club constitution or Cricket Section Regulations as may be amended from time to time.

Code of Conduct for Young People

Henley Cricket Club is fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the well being of all its members.

  2. All parents should be aware that on occasions young people may have to shower in changing rooms containing adults such as in Open Age cricket. The club policy is for adults to shower and change at different times within the facility as per the ECB guidelines.
