Announcing Post National Unlocking Amendments for UK QuidditchAnnouncements
With considerable changes lined up for England regarding Covid-19, read further to find out how this will affect quidditch. Wales remains under Covid-19 restrictions for the foreseeable future, so Welsh teams should continue to follow relevant guidance. The Scottish government has not yet confirmed its position regarding the end of restrictions.
With full-contact quidditch returning from the end of July, we encourage all our players to continue booking their vaccinations. If you’ve booked your second vaccine through the NHS website, you may be able to book an earlier appointment here!
Following the English government’s announcement regarding the lifting of Covid-19 restrictions on 19th July, we can confirm that full quidditch training can be resumed in England from 19th July. This means the following:
- Full-contact training can occur
- No limits on the number of players attending
- No further risk assessments need to be submitted
- Friendly fixtures can occur between teams
Until further notice, quidditch in England and Scotland can be resumed under the same conditions as prior to Covid-19.
The Scottish government has not yet confirmed their position on ending restrictions.
If the Scottish government removes all restrictions, then all of the above will also apply to Scotland. In the meantime, please continue to follow guidance from QuidditchUK and Sportscotland. You can see our latest guidance here.
