Appendix: synopsis of key COVD-19 rules
DO NOT ATTEND IF YOU HAVE ANY SYMPTOMS SUGGESTING YOU COULD BE INFECTED OR IF YOU HAVE BEEN IN CONTACT WITH A SUSPECTED CASE
- Ensure the session implements a pre-booking system to manage the number of players attending each session allowing for you to maintain social distancing measures. You cannot allow members to play without them having pre-booked their attendance. Badminton England has made a booking system available to affiliated clubs at no cost – https://badmintonengland.playwaze.com.
- Ensure contact details for all players attending are collected.
- All participants (players, coaches, coordinators) have a responsibility to notify the Covid-19 Officer should they get symptoms of Covid-19. The person with symptoms should seek a test promptly and follow the NHS Track and Trace procedure – https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/testing-and-tracing/
- Both singles play and doubles play can now take place in groups of people from different households, as long as you remain 2 metres apart as far as possible – meaning that four people from different households can play doubles.
- You can play singles and doubles using all areas of the court, within the respective court markings – if social distancing between adjacent courts cannot be maintained, you should only use the singles court markings.
- Whether playing singles or doubles, activity is restricted to groups of a maximum of six people. Players can rotate within the group but social distancing must be maintained within this group. You cannot move groups within a session.
- You can have more than one group in a hall, providing you are able to maintain social distancing within the space available. A group could, for example, be housed on one court and its surrounding run-off area or across more than one court.
- Other than where players are from the same household or part of a support bubble, follow Government advice on staying alert and safe, and:
- Stay at least two metres away from other players (including during play) as far as possible, when taking breaks and before and after play
- Do not make physical contact with other players (such as shaking hands or high fiving)
- Avoid chasing the shuttle down towards another court if other players are using it
- For doubles, consider agreeing in advance which player will take the shot if a shuttle travels to the centre of the court
- There will be strict equipment rules in place for rackets and guidance on the use of shuttles.
NB Venue specific restrictions will be in place and you will be responsible for ensuring you adhere to these.
