FDLC would like to reassure all participants that the health and safety of all venue users and staff is our top priority, in addition we have also increased the cleaning and sanitisation of equipment in the stadium area. We will continue to follow guidance provided by the NSW State Government, NSW Health and relevant national sporting bodies.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we have made a few changes to our operations and have updated our conditions of entry to the stadium (sports courts). Please ensure you carefully read the below and adhere to any requested protocol changes listed below.

Do not attend any sport if you are unwell and experiencing symptoms such as a cough, sore throat, fever, fatigue or shortness of breath.

Do not attend sport if, in the last 14 days, you have been unwell or had close contact with a known or suspected case of COVID-19.

If you have recently travelled from overseas or interstate please follow the current NSW Government and NSW Health advice. Anyone who is unwell should see a doctor in accordance with NSW Health guidelines.

Our current philosophy towards all indoor sport is to “arrive, play sport, leave”.

We encourage you to download the COVIDSafe App. In addition, FDLC have organised an app that all participants will use to digitally (via phone) check in and out of the centre, people without a phone will be required to check in and out at the front customer service counter. This process is required to assist with contact tracing should we have a venue user diagnosed with COVID-19.

Please prepare or dress for sport at home.

Please shower at home before and after sport.

FDLC will be providing sanitiser stations throughout the centre. There are two units located at the entry to the stadium (sports courts).

Participants should gradually return to training/competition to reduce the risk of injury. Please ensure suitable warm up and cool down takes place.

Please bring your own full drink bottle (please use plastic, no glass bottles are allowed) and towel. The water fountain (bubbler) is currently not in use.

Avoid unnecessary contact (i.e. shaking hands, high fives etc.) and please keep socially distanced during breaks in play.

If required, changing or putting on gear before and/or after sport should be done in, or near to, your own vehicle – or elsewhere away from the playing area. Please note the FDLC change rooms, showers and lockers are currently closed. Toilet facilities are open.

Enter and exit the centre and stadium via the designated doorways (see image above).

Badminton specific information

Please bring your own clean racket and shuttles. FDLC will not be hiring/loaning out badminton rackets and shuttles, however, we will have items for sale if required.

We would prefer players to play singles matches as opposed doubles (doubles is permitted, not preferred).

Please stop play 2-3 minutes prior to official booking end time to reduce crossover with the next booking group (socially distancing when entering and exiting the facility).

No chairs are in use until further notice.

Please email if you have any questions, feedback or suggestions.
