  • Covid Protocol update for returning to play on 20th September

    10/09/2021 GeneralCovid Protocol update for returning to play on 20th September

    Dear members,

    Please see the latest protocol for returning to play on the 20th September below. 

    The main points are as follow: 

    • Clubs will only be able to operate with either the Pod of 6 OR the 100 fully vaccinated participants, clubs will not be able to operate both systems simultaneously

     

    • If clubs wish to apply the government guidelines in terms of allowing for 100 fully vaccinated participants, clubs will need to take on the responsibility of checking, at each club night, a participant's vaccination certificate on entry to the venue and clubs will need to take full responsibility in applying this if they choose to take this option as opposed to applying the 'Pod of 6' system which Badminton Ireland is recommending.

     

    • For juvenile clubs, we recommend the ‘pods of 6’ system per court, with all the same procedures outlined.

     

    • Under 18’s are not required to be vaccinated, as part of the 100 vaccinated participants

     

    If you have any questions or queries relating to these guidelines, please fill out the form on the link below:
