Breakers Stadium prepares to re-open

The indoor stadium


The Breakers Indoor Stadium at Terrigal is back in business.

With the easing of COVD-19 restrictions taking place from October 11, the stadium doors reopened on October 18 for casual court hire and competitions will resume on November 1.

“We understand that many of you are so keen to get back and wanting to be knocking on the door on Monday October 11, but we didn’t want to rush this as your health and wellbeing is simply too important to us,” a spokesperson said.

During the first stage of reopening: members and staff 16+ must be fully vaccinated to enter the stadium unless they are medically exempt; group court sessions are capped at 20 people; masks are compulsory for those aged 12 and over while not participating in an on-court activity; and QR code check-in is required with a manual option available for those without a smart phone.

From December 1, unvaccinated staff and members will be allowed to return to the stadium.

Proof of full vaccination from everyone aged 16 years and over will need to be shown on entry.

Participants can remove masks while engaged in on-court activity but must replace them once on-court activity is complete.

The stadium has asked patrons to: sanitise on arrival and exit from venue; arrive as late as possible and leave promptly after their activity; follow signage for exit points; maintain social distance of 1.5m whilst not engaged in on-court activity; stay home if unwell; only come to the stadium if you absolutely must.

Patrons are also requested not to sing, cheer or chant.

“Please remember that this has been a tough time for everyone, our staff included,” the spokesperson said.

“We will not under any circumstances tolerate rude behaviour towards our staff or volunteers, your understanding will be appreciated.

“We are so excited to be able to welcome you back into the stadium and offer a positive environment to help us all back to our best health – both physically, mentally and socially.

“Please trust we are doing our absolute best and bring only kindness into the stadium.”

Domestic Basketball, Junior and Senior, returns from November 1, with netball returning on November 3 and volleyball on November 7.

Walking Basketball and Sunday Scrimmage will resume at a date yet to be announced, following the attainment of the 80 per cent double vaccination rate.

Aussie Hoops returns of October 23.

No other development programs will run for this term due to COVID-19 restrictions and details of the January 2022 school holiday programs will be advised in coming months.

Representative Rebels Trials will take place on December 4 and 5 for U12s, U14s and U16s and on December 11 and 12 for U18s.
