Safe billiards in corona time

Safe billiards in corona time

Due to the increase in infections, Dutch Government has taken new measures. From November 28, an evening lockdown will apply from 17:00 h. Park Startbaan will be closed from November 28 at 5 p.m.

Unfortunately, Corona is not (yet) gone. The following themes remain important:

  • the one and a half meters away; this is a legally required measure
  • hand hygiene
  • the ventilation in the room
  • stay home with complaint

Face masks are not mandatory while playing, but are when walking to one of the other areas of Park Startbaan. (Sportcafe, toilet, exit)
There are some rules when billiards in corona time related to the one and a half meters. The most important is: only the one who is playing billiards is standing, the others are sitting at one and a half meters. No hands are shaken.

Hand hygiene speaks for itself. Hands are disinfected before each batch and after each batch. The play balls are disinfected in the cleaning machine. The cue must also be disinfected before the party.

Keeping distance and hand hygiene are the most important elements of corona prevention.

The billiard room is equipped with an up to date ventilation system. Every 15 minutes, all the air in the room is extracted and blown back for 50% mixed with outside air. Before the air is blown back into the room, it passes through these HEPA filters, known for optimal ventilation in hospitals and airplanes.

From November 28, 2021, the Corona protocol Billiard Center Park Startbaan will also apply. The most important additional rules in the protocol are:

only the one who can stand billiards, the others have to sit at a table, 1,5 meters away
There is a maximum number of players in the room: 30 people.
And further, keep having fun playing! Together we also keep the Billiard Center Park Startbaan safe.

Billiards can be played again from 19 May 2021 and after long months of waiting, that is very gratifying news. It is important that the billiard environment is safe in corona time.
