Whilst a return to contact training is a welcome announcement, we recognise that regulations preventing gatherings greater than groups of 10 are still in place. 
For all club and external bookings relating to a particular sporting activity, please ensure National Governing Body guidelines are adhered to in line with Sport NI Return to Sport Guidelines. It is the responsibility of our clubs and external users to ensure this is followed.
All bookings including recreational 5-aside must go through our application process. You can apply for a booking at Upper Malone by contacting our bookings team
We plan to fully open as soon as we can and will use this phased re-opening to ensure that the operational changes required to provide a safe playing environment have been fully implemented, tested and modified where required. 
Your safety, and that of Queen's Sport staff, remains our priority.
