On Monday 22 February, the government announced that students studying practical university courses are able to return to campus from 8 March. Students not on practical course do not yet have a return date, however this is being reviewed by and a decision should be made by Friday 16 April.
Grassroots sports is proposed to return on Monday 29 March, with outdoor sports commencing no earlier than Monday 17 May. However, as the DMU term ends on Friday 26 March, there will be no organised, face-to-face, sport this term – indoors or outdoors.
DMUsport are currently making decisions on what this means for term 3. There are a number of factors to consider, such as budget, government guidance, exam season and how many students will be able and willing to attend sessions. Therefore, there is a lot of uncertainty around term 3.
Any updates will be published on the DMUsport website and communicated directly to Club Committees, Activators and Coaches as soon as possible. If you have any questions, please contact DMUsport.
