Reopening Information

The Langille Athletic Centre is excited to offer a variety of activities for members and students.  Members will be required to book activity pods (see below for pod descriptions) in advance by contacting us at rams@dal.ca. Bookings will be allowed 2 days prior to use. If booking a court (please see below restrictions) all participants are to be included in the booking and must be members of the facility.

Please adhere to physical distancing rules for the following court sports:

Badminton & Pickleball - Only singles play will be permitted initially, unless the partners are considered from the same 10 person social group who are not practicing physical distancing (maximum of 6 per pod). Participants must remain on the same court (pod) for the entire booking (no court/pod swapping). 

Squash - Drilling or playing modified games which maintain the physical distance of two meters, but also of play between two members of the same 10 person social group who are not practicing physical distancing.

Basketball - Only 2 individuals per hoop, 1 if they are not from the same 10 person social group who are not practicing physical distancing. Participants must remain on the same court (pod) for the entire booking (no court/pod swapping).

The Soccer Field will be available to students and members, weather permitting, for recreational use. All users must contact the Athletic Centre in advance to obtain approval by emailing rams@dal.ca and must follow the posted regulations on the field.
