Pitches and outdoor sport update

Update

New restrictions will apply from 10-25 October following Scottish Government statement on 7 October. We will not be able to facilitate adult contacts sports, including football, rugby and hockey, and all our grass and synthetic pitches will be closed to adult customers. Also, we will not be able to operate any indoor fitness classes, though individual training at gyms can continue, as will access to our swimming pools.  Activities will resume on 26 October unless otherwise advised.


The SLLC Recovery Routemap outlines our current plans for reopening facilities. Outdoor pitches became available for children's use from Monday 17 August. Adults were allowed to use outdoor synthetic playing surfaces from Monday 7 September.

Reopening has taken place on a staged basis, and now includes the following facilities:

Booking a pitch

Where customers cannot access a pitch due to the facility not being open we will endeavour to make alternative arrangements, where possible, at another facility or at an alternative time. Customers should contact the applicable booking line initially to discuss requirements.

The process for booking and using a pitch is as follows:

  • All pitches must be booked by telephone prior to date of use. No provision for booking or paying will be available at facilities
  • All clubs and organisations must provide details of their COVID Coordinator at time of booking to facilitate the Scottish Government’s Test and Protect protocols and must adhere to the national governing body guidance at all times – see https://www.scottishfa.co.uk/media/6938/adults-return-to-training-24-august.pdf
  • In the case of casual bookings the booking holder must keep a register of all players for 21 days in line with the Scottish Government’s Test and Protect requirement
  • Please arrive at the facility no more than 5 minutes prior to your booking and wait at the designated area as directed by staff
  • Signage will be in place with designated waiting area and we ask that customers follow staff direction at all times
  • Teams should ensure physical distancing and hygiene guidance is followed at all times
  • A one-way system will be in place and you should adhere to this at all times
  • There is no access to changing and toilet access will be very limited – please encourage players to make use of facilities before leaving home
  • If you or any of your players display any of the signs or symptoms of COVID-19 or have been in contact with someone showing the signs and symptoms you must not attend and should stay at home and follow the advice from Scottish Government and NHS Scotland
  • No First Aid provision is available to casual customers. First Aid is the responsibility of clubs and organisations in line with current guidance
