Restrictions Extended

Restrictions and FAQ's...

Restrictions outlined by the NI Executive on 17 December 2020 have been extended.

Following the recent NI Executive review meeting which was held on 16 March, we unfortunately still do not have a defined starting date for Indoor Sport at the PEC or BT1. Outdoor sport will return to Upper Malone on 12 April, however at this stage we are still seeking clarity on which outdoor activities are permitted.

Queen's Sport will continue to comply with official guidance and take all appropriate steps to help prevent the spread of the virus – prioritising the health and wellbeing of our staff, students and wider community is upmost in all of our decision making. This means that until advised we cannot offer sport or fitness activities at any of our indoor sites apart from at an elite level.
