Trinity Sport Phased Re-Opening Statement

Dear Member,

We hope you’re keeping safe and well,
Thank you for your continued support and patience over the past three months as we adjust to the Covid-19 pandemic. Trinity Sport resumptions plans and operations are subject to approval by the University, and it is our intention to open some rowing activities at Islandbridge, and outdoor sports activities at Santry Sports Grounds and the Iveagh Sports Grounds from early July onwards. Planning around the re-opening of the Trinity Sports Centre and other outdoor campus sports facilities will continue in line with the University’s resumption of activities schedule (gradual reopening from early August). In the meantime, we are doing everything we can to prepare our facilities for a safe and measured reopening.

Our main priority is the safety of our members and staff, we are ensuring all appropriate guidelines and protocols are followed. This may mean that some things will have to change and we will be asking you to also take care of your own personal hygiene and safety. The current plans which will be implemented across all our sporting facilities include but are not limited to:

  • Designated entry, exit, and one-way access routes.
  • Booking system to manage a reduced capacity and to assist with contact tracing.
  • Increased dedicated cleaning schedules.
  • Contactless payments.
  • Socially distanced facility and staffing setup.
  • Staff training in new procedures and safety systems.
  • Digital user orientation and continued digital and virtual offers.
  • Sanitiser and handwash stations.

Regarding your membership subscription, we will continue all current arrangements for the duration of the closure period. Any queries can be directed to sport@tcd.ie. Trinity Sport will continue to take guidance from the Government, Trinity, Sports Sector and HSE and will keep all our members up to date via the Trinity Sport website, email and our social media channels. Please see our current schedule of Train Online with Trinity Sport classes and programmes here.

We very much look forward to seeing you back in our sporting facilities again soon.

Kind regards,
Trinity Sport
