Basketball Ireland issues updated Return to Play guidelines
June 22, 2020
Basketball Ireland’s ‘Return to Play’ group has issued updated guidance in light of the government’s re-phasing of the Roadmap for Reopening Society and Business, which has allowed all sport in the Republic of Ireland to resume on June 29th.
From this date groups of up to 50 people can gather indoors on one court to train to play basketball. Close contact is allowed but social distance rules must still be applied.
Every player must also have their own ball, however players from one family may share a ball.

All members of the basketball community are also urged read the updated Return to Sport Covid Safety Statement.pdf, to make sure they comply with the regulations set out by the government in conjunction with Sport Ireland and Basketball Ireland.
Basketball Ireland Board Director and Chair of the Return to Play group, Charles Higgins, said: “We are delighted that the basketball community can look forward to an accelerated return to the sport we love. All participants are reminded that they should adhere to the guidance that we’ve outlined, to ensure all those participating can do so in a safe manner.”
