STATEMENT Scottish Handball Association 22/10/20 

All partners across the sporting system are committed to the safe return of sport. However, recent figures serve as a timely reminder that the virus has not gone away and we understand the very difficult decisions taken by Government as it continues to deal with what is a public health emergency.

While the introduction of further restrictions is disappointing, now more than ever, it is vital that we all do what we can to help suppress the spread of the virus and to protect the NHS. We believe that sport can be delivered safely, and we will be working with partners including the Scottish Government and sportscotland to show that this is the case.  

While we know this is a frustrating time but continued patience and understanding will be required as we look to make further progress when the time is right, in line with the latest public health guidance. Discussions continue to take place across the sector to address the challenges that still need to be overcome before the delivery of sport in local communities and at a club level will be considered in any way back towards anything like normal.  Everyone connected with Scotland’s sporting system is working together to address these challenges.

Due to this, we have introduced an appendix to our guidance which takes into account local restrictions. 

The current Phase 3 Handball guidelines with appendix are here: Guidelines
