Progress competitions December 2021

by archysport

Badminton Netherlands has decided to continue the competitions for the next three weeks. We explain this decision below.

At the press conference of the outgoing cabinet on Friday, November 26, it became clear that for the next three weeks, badminton will only be allowed between 5 a.m. and 5 p.m. This means that no training sessions and no competition matches can take place at some of the associations. This applies to both youth and seniors.

With this thought in mind, we’ve put together the pros and cons. The starting point is the guidelines of the government. Within the current measures, it is allowed to exercise during the day. We understand that it can emotionally conflict that competitions are allowed, but training is (almost) not possible. We share this feeling.

On the other hand, the temporary suspension of the competition has a major impact on badminton in the Netherlands. As the competitions continue, we want to encourage our members to keep moving. This is good for both physical and mental health.

In addition, we have not received any messages about compensation for associations for the room rental if we decide to stop the competition. According to the measures, sports are allowed during the day, so the costs will most likely not be compensated.

In the end, we have decided to allow the competitions to continue within the guidelines of the government. Since sports are only allowed until 5 pm, this means that all matches with a start time of 2.30 pm or later cannot be played. These games, like the weekday games, will have to be made up in a reserve week. Matches that can continue within the current guidelines, but are not played, can be passed on in the usual way and must also be made up at a later time. There will again be no sanctions for the coming period.

We understand that, based on the current measures, this decision again asks a lot from the volunteers at associations. For the current corona regulations, view the new version of the Badminton protocol here.
