The EDJBA has made the decision to move the competition from operating under Orange-50 to COVIDSAFE (Green-100) effective from this Saturday, 23rd January 2021. This will see a significant number of restrictions eased including spectators limits increased slightly as well as the game length returning to two 20-minute halves.
As per COVIDSAFE, spectator limits will be increased to 40 per court, which will allow for two spectators per player.
Masks also become recommended for patrons, however those aged 12 and up must wear on entry and exit of stadium where social distancing cannot be maintained.
