6th August 2021

Although legal restrictions around Covid-19 are being removed from 19th July, they have been replaced with a set of guidance which strongly encourages all venues to behave as currently. See:

So essentially from our perspective things stay much the same at Abbeydale Sports & Community Centre and Phoenix Cafe Bar after 19th July until further notice, apart from the Artificial Training Pitch where we have relaxed a few restrictions.:

    • Bar service in Phoenix Cafe Bar has now resumed.
    • Contactless card payment is much preferred.
    • We will still provide hand sanitisers in rooms.
    • Groups will enter/exit using fire doors etc, as currently.
    • We are strongly recommending all customers and staff continue to use face coverings when appropriate.
    • We strongly recommend all customers and staff continue to check in using the NHS Test and Trace QR codes.
    • We will be maintaining a 15 minute gap between groups using our rooms.
    • Room capacities have reverted back to normal. However room hirers are strongly encouraged to grow their numbers slowly over several weeks rather than reverting immediately to large numbers. Please also refer to your governing body where applicable for further guidance.
    • For Artificial Training Pitch bookings, the latest FA guidance suggests minimising the use of changing rooms where possible. See FA update on grassroots football ahead of COVID-19 restrictions easing on 19 July here. We have removed the 15 minute gap between bookings at this point as it is no longer mandated, we have therefore updated our COVID-19 Risk Assessments accordingly. We have automatically adjusted all bookings of 45 minutes back to the usual full hour. Please check your bookings carefully as the start time for some has come forward. There may be some room to adjust the summer bookings slightly if needed. You can do this online here Booking System – Abbeydale Sports & Community Centre.

Monday – 11am to 10pm (food until 8pm)
