Sport and recreation
- Community sport is open indoors and outdoors for training and competition with the minimum number of people required to play. Spectators can attend in line with outdoor public gathering limits and the venue’s indoor density limits. Vaccination requirements don’t apply to community sport.
- Physical recreation and sporting facilities (including swimming pools, spas and saunas) are open if everyone present is fully vaccinated (indoors at 1 person per 4 sqm, or outdoors at 1 person per 2 sqm up to 500 people).
Some further research reveals the following to, hopefully, clarify the above as it is a little confusing around access to recreational facilities where we run a lot of rides from:
Indoor and outdoor physical recreation and sporting facilities such as swimming pools and leisure centres are open.
If these facilities, including club rooms, are used for community sport (organised competitive sports with membership), patrons participating or facilitating community sport (e.g. players, coaches, volunteers) do not need to be vaccinated to access the facility.
However, to access the facility for a purpose other than community sport where all attendees are required to be fully vaccinated - such as gym, hospitality or entertainment - attendees must be fully vaccinated, be under 16 or have a valid medical exemption.
