The following restrictions will be in force until further notice.
The maximum number of people permitted indoors is six, if social distancing can be achieved. Where social distancing cannot be achieved only the players and referee are permitted inside. Spectators are not permitted at a venue so viewing areas should be closed off.
Changing rooms and showers also remain closed until further notice.
For players under-18 years of age, a parent or guardian is permitted to attend matches or training.
Strict social distancing and the wearing of masks should be adhered to at all times.
A parent or guardian is not considered a spectator. A parent or guardian as well as all players must complete the Covid-19 Declaration before attending any tournament or training session. https://www.racquetball.ie/declaration.html.
The declaration should be made immediately before playing.
