IMPORTANT NOTICE | BANKSTOWN ASSOCIATION COVID-19 NOTICE

Last updated 06 August 2020 !

THIS WEEKS WEATHER FORECAST
This week's weather forecast is predicting rain. If the weather does not allow for players to line up outside, we ask the following (however, I will send out updates as needed):

     Friday: Please ensure that players, along with their 1 x spectator, arrive no earlier than 5 Minutes before their game. Any players who do not need to show ID and arrive any earlier than 5 minutes will be asked to go and wait in their car. Players will be directed to their court, however, will not be able to go to the benches until cleaning has concluded.
Due to there being no undercover section available for teams to line up on a Friday, we ask that teams please be mindful to leave the stadium as soon as their game concludes, to assist staff with a smooth transition.
    Saturday: Players are able to arrive 10 minutes before their game with there 1 x spectator, and will be lined up on Courts 1 & 2 until directed to their courts by supervisors.
In order to avoid crowding at the entrance, we ask that all spectators send the message prior to arriving at the stadium. It must be done on the day of competition, and both messages (sent and received) will need to be on the screen ready to show the BSO Officer.
      As per last week. We ask that all players are dressed in their playing gear and ready to take the court.
We ask that you please be mindful in terms of your well-being. If you feel un-well or have been in contact with a COVID-19 case or to any of the noted hotspot locations, please do not attend our stadium.
Please continue to monitor NSW Health for updated on confirmed case locations - https://www.nsw.gov.au/covid-19/latest-news-and-updates#latest-covid-19-case-locations-in-nsw
