Update to Government Guidance - 10th July

Organised club training is not permitted. 

 

The government has announced a framework for the return of recreational team sport which is applicable from 11 July.  This does not mean, however, that it is possible for team sports to be played from that date.

 

For the avoidance of doubt, we are still in PHASE A of our Outline of Phased Return to Play.  Organised Ultimate club training is not permitted.  We are working through the details of the latest information to work out how and when they can be applied to Ultimate.  We have to produce an Ultimate-specific action plan for sign off by the Department of Culture Media & Sport.  We will do this as quickly as we can, but cannot be certain how long it will take.

 

In response to queries we have received regarding individuals from different households meeting to throw a disc, we make the following comments.  

  • You must take responsibility for understanding and following the guidance on meeting other people as it applies to you and your location.
  • We note that UK Government guidance has indicated that throwing a ball or frisbee between people who are otherwise maintaining appropriate distance, is “allowed”, assuming appropriate care is taken to clean hands and the equipment beforehand, afterwards, thoroughly and regularly.  
  • We understand that there is a cross-sport medical group investigating this issue.  
  • If you feel comfortable throwing a disc with other people under public health guidelines as they apply to you and your location, then it is your decision and you accept the risk of doing so.
