Local sports clubs can now re-commence training sessions in City of Bayswater parks and reserves, in line with WA’s roadmap to easing restrictions, recently announced by the State Government.
All clubs will need to complete the State Government’s social distancing guideline checklist for non-contact sport and additional checklists from relevant State sporting associations. Once approved, clubs will be able to return to the City’s parks and reserves to train. Floodlights will be available between 5.30pm and 10pm and public toilets will be open.
In line with State Government’s road map, clubs will not be able to access changing rooms or clubroom facilities and no official training bookings will be taken until further announcements are made.
City of Bayswater Mayor Dan Bull said the City is committed to supporting local clubs as they transition back into regular training sessions.
“Sporting clubs are vital to our community; they provide people with the opportunity to get fit, socialise and importantly – take care of their mental health.
“We understand the devastating effect restrictions, put in place to stop the spread of COVID-19, have had on our sporting clubs. With many of them forced to reimburse fees paid for the cancelled season, and a limited ability to fundraise over recent months.
“Finding that vital balance between helping people return to doing what they love, and ensuring our community remains safe is the City’s number one priority. We’re here to provide the support clubs will need to comply with all regulations, and get back out there as soon as possible.”
Clubs with bookings that have been placed on hold as a result of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) have been contacted by the City. For further information please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
