University Sports Center Extends Non-Contact Interim Program

May 27th, 2020 | by

The University Sports Center (HSZ) will be offering an extended interim program from June 2, 2020. This will include indoor activities and the reopening of the RWTH GYM, as the HSZ announced yesterday. Although the government of North Rhine-Westphalia will allow contact sports again from May 30, the HSZ has decided against offering them. “We hope you can understand that the HSZ will not be offering contact sports,” explains Peter Lynen, head of the HSZ.

The university management has decided to start the program with caution. This will initially be non-contact in order to prevent the corona virus from spreading. “In this context, we hope that you understand that the sports activities made possible by the state of NRW cannot always be resumed immediately from the time of the announcement. The reason for this is, on the one hand, the very short notice of the regulation changes and, on the other hand, the time and staff required to responsibly implement the new regulations. This also serves to minimize possible risks for all athletes,” Lynen continued.
