Covid-19 Measures

Ronin Grappling aims to be transparent and accountable to its members.

Over the past year we have taken a number of measures in preparation for a non contact re-opening.

The government has now announced a plan to reopen gyms for non-contact individual training on the 26th of April 2021. We have created a schedule with slots developed to adhere to physical distancing guidance.

This non-contact no-class schedule will remain in place until we are given the go ahead to re-commence group classes by the Scottish Government, at that point we will follow a group but non-contact schedule with dummies until contact sports are allowed again.

As outdoors contact training will hopefully be permitted earlier than indoor contact training we are trying to find a solution to allow us full contact classes outdoors.

We have based our re-opening plans on Sport Scotland’s guide: Getting your facilities fit for sport.

As part of these measures we have produced a number of documents to aid us in re-opening the gym while minimising the risk of cross-contamination and to adhere to social distancing rules.

Please see below our risk assessment, our cleaning and infection prevention policy, our hygiene recommendations for members, and our temporary schedule.

The Covid and Infection Control point of contact at Ronin Grappling will be Cristiana Theodoli whose responsibilities will include promoting good hygiene and ensuring this policy is implemented. In her role as a registered Adult nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Council, Cristiana has received infection control training and as she is working at the forefront of the Covid crisis she understands the importance of working to NHS standards of hygiene.
