30/30 Lightning Policy

Lightning Policy

Kensington Baseball Club abides by the 30/30 Lightning Safety Guideline.

Stop play if the time between seeing a lightning flash and hearing thunder is less than 30 seconds. Immediately seek safety under or within an appropriate shelter (a building if available).

Do NOT shelter under trees, particularly an isolated tree. Do NOT stand close to any metallic structures inc. goal posts.

If on an open field away from any shelters, keep as low and as small as possible. I.e. crouch keeping feet together and do not touch any objects or people near you.

Do not resume play until at least 30 minutes has passed since the last thunder was heard.
