CORONA NEWS: Let's get back to it!

Yes! We are happy to announce that starting Monday 18 May, we can start (some) outdoor sport activities again! This means no more sitting at home and get back to your workout!
In this item we will update you which sports activities will start again and how you can make a reservation for one of the activities!

Please be aware! All indoor sports are not possible until 1 September!  

Below you can find an overview about how to make a reservation, sports protocol and all our outdoor sports options. Please read the topics carefully before you make a reservation! 

Make a reservation

Make a reservation online
To use one of the sports options, you’ll need to make a reservation through our DMS system. Please be aware that you can make a reservation starting 3 hours before the start of an activity.

 You can make a reservation by the following steps:

1.       Go to dms.utwente.nl and log in.
2.       Click on the menu item, Bookings.
3.       In the Bookings section select the sports location, which you want to make a reservation for, by clicking the ‘Room’ drop down menu.
4.       Select in the calendar the timeslot you want to make a reservation for, if the timeslot is red you can’t make a reservation. If the timeslot is green you should be able to make a reservation.
5.       After your reservation, you’ll receive an e-mail confirmation (in Dutch). Bring this confirmation to the sports location and show it to one of our employees. You can bring the confirmation in a digital form.

Sports protocol

Sports protocol
We have set up a sports protocol which you need to abide by if you are using one of our accommodations. You can find the protocol here.

At every sport location there will be Sports Centre employees who will make sure you can sport safely! 

Sports associations

All the board members of the sports associations have received an e-mail with information for their outdoor sports. We are aiming to start our indoor sports at 1 September. 

For the associations it's necessary to keep the following in mind: 

- As agreed with all sports coordinators and associations, you can only engage in sports after making a reservation.
- The training sessions will take place under the supervision of a trainer, who is a member of the association.
- For each location, a corona supervisor has been appointed, who will monitor correct adherence to the rules.
- The service desk of the Sports Centre is available for any questions, emergencies, and for using the bathroom facilities (if this is really necessary).
- The changing rooms/showers, lockers and other indoor facilities are closed.
- Members can’t use public transport to reach the Campus.
- If we have to many people on Campus, there is a possibility we have to make adjustments in the schedule for sports.

Of course, we urge everyone to use common sense when travelling to campus. The sports facilities will only be reopened, and remain open, if we all handle this start-up correctly, and we are counting on your cooperation in order to achieve this! We can only get corona under control if we work together!

Tennis

Do you want to make a reservation for tennis? Please note that you can only play with 2 (duo) or 4 (double) persons on one court. One person has to make the reservation and bring the (digital) confirmation, but all the participants need to show their personal UnionCard/CampusCard!

We have a maximum number of 16 participants during a timeslot for tennis. Please be aware that we have eight courts available (6 smash and 2 gravel), bring your confirmation and your UnionCard/CampusCard to the court and show them to our Sports Centre employee. After that you can use one of the courts.

  • It's only possible to make an individual reservation. 
  • You can only swim one hour a day! It's not allowed to make more then one reservation!
