This is required when requesting bookings, making queries etc. GSLA staff will also be required to wear masks when manning these areas. For the time being masks are not required inside our sports halls/ swimming pools pre and post participation in activities as long as social distancing is respected and all other protocols are adhered to. Access remains prohibited to spectators unless it has been specifically requested and approved for certain events.
We thank you for your continued cooperation during these challenging times. We are extremely glad to have you back and these measures will ensure that we can continue sporting activities as at present!!”
