IPA Phase 3 protocol update.
In accordance with the Government’s easing of restrictions the Irish Padel Association has updated its protocol for a return to padel. The following amendments take effect from June 29th 2020:
1) Doubles play is now permitted with partners from outside your own
It is recommended, however, that every effort is made to keep to sensible standards of social distancing, e.g., no handshakes, change ends at opposite sides of the net etc..
Where possible it is advisable to use 4 sets of balls so that only the person serving touches the balls assigned to them.
2) Coaches may now work with up to 6 players per court, subject to
sensible practices of social distancing being implemented.
It is recommended that only the coach collects/handles the balls.
We would again remind all players to avoid unnecessary contact with the glass and to respect any supplementary protocols put in place by your club or public Padel facility.
