Residents who are longing to get active and stretch their legs will soon be able to enjoy their favourite sport at the Saint-Laurent Sports Complex. Starting Monday, July 20, these facilities will be reopened to badminton and ping-pong enthusiasts (singles games only), since these popular activities can be played by reserving online at loisirsmontreal.ca or at the Complex’s front desk. Open Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. - 7:30 p.m. as well as Saturday and Sunday, 9 a.m. - 3:30 p.m., the front desk will be closed noon – 1 p.m., every day.
Measures related to the COVID-19 pandemic will be enforced to ensure the safety of sports participants and staff. For example, changing rooms will remain closed, but washrooms will be open. It is therefore recommended that sports participants put on their playing clothes prior to their arrival.
Access to the sports facilities will be denied to anyone who has symptoms or a positive diagnosis of COVID-19, has been in close contact with a person with COVID-19, or has been placed in voluntary or mandatory isolation.
In addition, certain rules on health and physical distancing will have to be followed indoors. It should be noted that as of Saturday, July 18, 12-year-olds and over will be required to wear a mask or face covering, unless they take part in a physical activity, in which case they will be allowed to remove it for the duration of the activity.
Sports activities resuming
Gradually, the clubs will resume their activities as well, in order to offer most of their regular classes come September. Residents will be able to take advantage of the Sports Complex’s swimming pool, for example, which is closed at the present time for previously planned seasonal maintenance work. They are invited to contact the clubs for details on fall courses and their schedules.
