Playing Safely Together

UWA Sport, as part of UWA, is continuing to take a proactive approach to the evolving Coronavirus (COVID-19) health alert.

Last updated: Thursday 25 June, 1pm

With the recent easing of social distancing rules, we continue to operate in accordance with the government's health and safety advice and are committed to playing our part in controlling the spread of coronavirus.

As a responsible business, we have taken all necessary measures to ensure our venues are safe, hygienic environments for everyone. The health and safety of our team, customers and the community will always be our first priority.

We have implemented the following measures to ensure you feel safe when you decide to re-engage with us. 

  • Cleaning more frequently
  • Staying a safe distance 
  • Limiting our services 
  • Providing hand sanitiser 
  • Offering contactless payment 
  • Limiting capacity 

We have also asked our staff to assist in monitoring and adherence to social distancing and developed safety guidelines to ensure health and safety regulations are being followed.

We would also like to encourage our community to consider downloading the COVIDSafe app which further supports community health and safety, and will allow our sporting community to make a quicker return to our playing fields, courts and pools. 

Please scroll down to view the venues and services that will be available from Saturday 27 June 2020.

Thank you for your patience and continuing to place your trust in us.
