Trinity Sport Phased Re-Opening Statement

Dear Member,

We hope you’re keeping safe and well,

Thank you for your continued support and patience as we adjust to the Covid-19 pandemic. While Dublin remains at Level 3 of the Living with COVID-19 plan, Trinity students and members are asked to note the following: .

• Individuals can continue to exercise and train in all Trinity Sport’s facilities including Trinity Sport Centre, Santry Sports Grounds, Iveagh Sports Grounds and Islandbridge Boathouse. All group fitness classes will be available online via the Trinity Sport app.

• Groups of up to 15 can exercise, train and play recreational activities outdoors providing there is no contact. For example, clubs or groups of students can get together outdoors to do activities such as bootcamp, hiking, canoeing, running, fitness trail, soccer, etc providing no more than 15 people are involved and they have no physical contact.

• Exemptions: The following Trinity teams, who compete at high levels in their sport, have been granted Government exemption from level 3 restrictions and can train and compete with appropriate Covid-19 protocols in place. Fixtures that are scheduled to take place on and off campus will go ahead but without spectators.

• Trinity Clubs are not permitted to hold any other congregations on or off campus and must not, so long as Level 3 continues, congregate before or after training sessions or competitive fixtures.

A number of restrictions will apply during our initial reopening phase of the Trinity Sport Centre. We will ease these restrictions as it is safe and permissible to do so and hope to return to normal operations within a short period. We will continue to comply with all government guidelines as part of that process.

1. Online Booking System:

We have decided to operate an online booking system during our initial reopening phase to help us control the number of members and staff at Trinity Sport Centre at any one time.

Online booking will be available from Tuesday, 11th August, you can book 1 x 1 hour 'Gym Slot' per day. Gym Slots and fitness classes can be booked 24 hours in advance, gym slots will be 60 minutes with a 15-minute gap to facilitate cleaning. You will not be able to enter Trinity Sport Centre without a booking and your Membership Access Card. Please do not attend the gym if you are feeling unwell or have a high temperature.
