September 14, 2020
Check out the competition safety instructions below and draw here.
17-15 Finnish championships’ and age group championships’ safety instructions
During the competition you must follow all recommendations and orders set by the Finnish authorities - and only show up without any symptoms. Badminton Finland has set its own set of instructions, that you can find from the end of the text.
In addition to the previously mentioned guidelines, Tapion Sulka would like to emphasize the following:
Use of masks
Face masks should be worn at all times when off court, whenever possible. THL recommends masks for over 15-year-olds.
Tapion Sulka requests that anyone at the competition supporting a player (family and friends) would only spend the absolute necessary time at the venue. In case a parent or guardian has reason to spend the day supporting and looking after their child, we ask for only one parent or guardian to be present. Players should also aim to minimize their time spent at the venue.
The previously mentioned instructions strive to ensure that the competition could be played as safely as possible - this requires some changes from the behavior that we are used to.
