Back to badminton (next stage)

The ACT Government has now announced that the Stage 2.2 of the easing of restrictions will commence on Friday, 19 June 2020 (see https://www.covid19.act.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0009/1558701/COVID-19-Easing-of-Restrictions-Roadmap-Release-2.0-12-June-2020.pdf).  This will provide for up to 100 people to play at indoor sports centres, subject to the one person per 4sqm rule. This effectively means that all ACTBA affiliated badminton clubs can resume their social sessions.  However, as some of the facilities that clubs hire are having some issues arranging for the reopening of their venues (largely related to sourcing cleaners), please see any notices individual clubs have placed on this website in relation to the resumption of play or call relevant club contacts to find out the latest information. All players are reminded that the resumption of full social play at clubs is on the basis of the ‘new normal’ conditions of play, most notably the required hygiene and distancing requirements.  Please be particularly mindful of the 1.5m distancing requirement while waiting for games and use the hand sanitisers provided at each club.  All players are required to meet individual clubs’ COVID-19 Safety Plans and Player Responsibility Lists of behaviour.  Further, you will all be required to formally register your names for each session to enable [read more…]

Some badminton clubs in the ACT will resume social play under the 20 person limit (but strictly for club members only), while others will resume when the 50 limit applies.  Please contact individual clubs for details on the resumption of play at their clubs. Consistent with the guidelines provided by Badminton Australia (BA), various national sporting bodies and government agencies, each club should prepare a Club Safety Plan and a list of Player Responsibilities to provide a framework for how social play at clubs will operate over the period of the ‘new normal’ until a vaccine for COVID-19 is developed.  This includes matters such as: that anyone at all unwell not to attend a badminton session; anyone exhibiting any COVID-19 symptoms to get tested; and various hygiene and social distancing practices during sessions.  All club players should familiarise themselves with these requirements. Further information will be provided as to the [read more…]
