The ACT Government has extended our lockdown until 15/10/21. Our community is doing an amazing job at getting vaccinated and we had hoped for more positive news and a roadmap. As an organisation, we had hoped we would be able to provide more clarity on our pathway back to sport after the lockdown.
Urban Rec Canberra's first priority is keeping our amazing employees safe and making sure they have a job to come back to when restrictions ease.
Our second priority is making sure everyone who has registered and is playing in a current season is able to finish their season in a covid-safe environment.
Here at Urban Rec we have been working hard on some amazing NEW experiences to keep you socially engaged, entertained and having fun with your team over this lockdown as well as opening up our spring/Summer leagues to give you something to look forward to.
We know this lockdown has affected all of us, we can’t control the actions or steps that are taken by the Government, so we will continue to lobby for the safe return of sport as soon as possible. We will keep this blog updated as soon as we know more. If you have any questions regarding your league, our refund policy or need any extra information, please send us an email [email protected]
We really appreciate all your understanding, commitment, and patience while we navigate this difficult time.
We’ve been missing you over the past month and can’t wait to get back into social sport. Currently we’ve missed 5 weeks of leagues, schedules have been updated and venues permitting we are ready to be back on the courts and fields from September 17. If you are currently playing or registered in a winter season your season will restart as soon as we get permission to play. You can keep up to date with the current public health orders here.
Prior to the current Covid situation we were busy planning an epic spring. We have new venues, new leagues and heaps of fun events ready to go. We’ve done our best to guess when we will be able to start and all these leagues are now open for registration. We recommend you pay a deposit to secure your spot and go in the draw to win a BOAT at launch on a launch.
We may be locked up at home, but we have plenty on to give you something fun to do:
STEPTEMBER - The one thing we can do in lockdown, is go for a walk (mask on of course). Take advantage of that and join the UR HQ Team for steptember! Keep those legs moving whilst also raising money for Cerebral Palsy at the same time. Its honestly a win-win, lets be honest. Find out more here.
E-LEAGUES - Most of us are getting alot more quality time with our Xbox's & Playstations these days, so why not keep your social competitive side alive and play with other Urban Reccers? We have you covered, join our eLeagues League for the chance to still get some bragging rights over your friends. All the info is here.
TRIVIA - Missing your Trivia Nights and exploding with the urge to blurt out some random general knowledge at someone other than your dog? Same. Jump onto our Friday Night Trivia nights, get your team together and show the room (zoom room) exactly how much you know about hot dog eating contests in the USA. Find out more here.
Our office has currently moved to skeleton hours, we are working from home of course. The best way to contact us is via [email protected]
This is an ever changing situation, Canberra seems to be doing a really great job of staying home and all our health workers are doing an amazing job. We are planning and ready to go, for a September 17 release from lockdown but if that does change we will keep you updated.
