URGENT - Regarding all Sports Clubs…

Published on 8th October 2020 at 16:36.

To all Sports clubs,

We have recently received this statement from the General Counsel's Office within the University. 

"We need to let you know that unfortunately, but for hopefully a short time, the University has had to put a temporary hold on all team sports activities.  This will need to take effect from today.

As I’m sure you appreciate that due to Covid-19 we do need to be flexible in adapting our plans.  We are hopeful that this temporary pause is not for too long, as we know how much our students are really enjoying playing in team sports.

We would also like to extend our thanks to so many people for taking all the health and safety guidelines seriously.  I’m sure if we all continue to do so, then team sports will be enjoyed by students this term. We appreciate how important they are, so some further refresher H&S training will be introduced.

We will be in touch again when we have further news about team sports restarting and any training that will be provided by the University.  Of course there are facilities at Sussexsport that remain open and you will find information on the website – including the Active Us programme of events.

Please contact Sussex Sport directly to talk about refunds for any bookings affected by this announcement from the University. 

Thank you for your understanding."
