UPDATED - Level 5 Guidelines - 31/12/2020
Thursday 31 December 2020
In response to the dramatic rise in cases over the past week, the Government has removed all exemptions previously announced under level 5 restrictions. This includes indoor individual training (Casual Singles play). Therefore, effectively immediately, all Badminton activity should cease until further notice.
This is another blow to our sport and will impact all our members and event organisers. Badminton Ireland will continue to liaise with Sport Ireland to develop a return to play protocols that will allow our Sport to return to normal as soon as possible.
We will also continue to engage with you on a number of matters early in the new year. More information can be found HERE
This guidance applies to the indoor sporting activity of National Governing Bodies of Sport (NGBs) and their affiliated network (Branches, Counties and Clubs). NGB’s must have assurances that protective measures will be strictly adhered to and therefore any club or group following these guidelines must be affiliated with Badminton Ireland.
Happy New Year,
