05/08/20 – Local Lockdown Update
Today, the Scottish Government, Aberdeen City Council and NHS Grampian made the decision to return the city to partial lockdown measures, as a result of the weekend spike of COVID-19 infections. It stated on Wednesday 5 August 2020;
“Following an increase in coronavirus (COVID-19) cases in Aberdeen, local restrictions on travel, indoor gatherings between households and the closure of indoor and outdoor hospitality will be introduced in the Aberdeen City local authority area.
Taking effect from 5pm on Wednesday 5 August, bars, restaurants, cafes and pubs will be required by law to close. Hotel restaurants can remain open to provide food for existing guests, and takeaway services can continue.
People in Aberdeen City are asked not to meet other households indoors or travel more than 5 miles for leisure or recreational purposes. People can continue to travel for work, or education purposes.”
What does this mean for Sport Aberdeen?
- Golf courses, outdoor tennis courts and bowling rinks remain open. The particular protocols for each sport must continue to be observed, these can be found below.
- Toilets have been closed at golf courses, tennis courts and bowling pavilions for the time being, as a precaution.

Reintroduction of Golf, Tennis & Bowls
As we follow the Scottish Government’s phased routemap out of lockdown, we are pleased to share that our golf courses, outdoor tennis courts and bowling rinks are now open and available to book, with safety protocols in place.
In line with Government measures in response to COVID-19, all Sport Aberdeen indoor venues are temporarily closed until further notice.
We will update members as our indoor venues reopen, in line with Government guidelines.
