Derbyshire County Cricket Club can confirm that the squad will return to training on Wednesday 1 July and begin preparations for the 2020 season.
The phased return, which will closely follow current government guidance, initially allows players to train in one-hour, one-to-one slots with coaches.
This schedule will gradually increase over the next few weeks to include larger group sessions, while the England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) continue to plan for the return of domestic cricket in August.
Head of Cricket, Dave Houghton, said: “This is another positive step towards playing competitive cricket this summer and that’s something everyone at Derbyshire is working towards.
“All of the players have been proactive in managing their fitness, but now we can pick up a bat and ball again with the aim of returning to competitive cricket in August.”
