by | Aug 21, 2020 | Sport News | 0 comments

We are looking forward to welcoming everyone back to campus and our priority is to provide everyone with a safe and positive experience when visiting our sport facilities.  The team will be returning to site in 10 days to ensure everything is in place but we want to make sure everyone knows what to expect when coming to see us in September.

Colleagues will be on site from 1st September with facilities starting to re-open from Monday 7th September.

You will notice a few changes around the facilities in addition to some changes to how you take part in activities to make sure that everything is done in line with government guidelines and for us to provide a safe space for you to enjoy your session.

Changes to keep us safe

In addition to our phased approach to reopening of our facilities, the following advice is to support you being safe:

  • Pre-book your session online
  • Keep a safe distance and follow our directional signage around the buildings
  • Wash or sanitise your hands before, during and after activities
  • Wipe down your equipment using the wipes provided
  • Stay at home if you feel unwell
  • Leave as soon as you finish your session

These are just a few things that you can do to help us all to stay safe and we will be supporting everyone by increasing our cleaning and making sure our spaces and activities allow you to keep your distance.

The university has provided a video to show what we are doing as an organisation to support you being safe.
