Restrictions Lifted

Volleyball Ireland welcomes the Government’s lifting of restrictions related to Indoor Sport and the wider reopening of society.

From 6am tomorrow the majority of restrictions will be lifted, including the necessity to have a valid Covid Recovery or Vaccination Certificate. Players, Coaches & Referees can participate in competitive indoor Volleyball, without proof of vaccination.


Commenting on the Government’s announcements, Volleyball Ireland General Manager Gary Stewart said, “On behalf of the Association I’d like to first and foremost thank all of the health professionals and front line workers that have committed so much to helping throughout the pandemic, their sacrifice and dedication has been astounding and inspiring and the country owes them all a great debt. Furthermore our clubs and their covid officers have gone above and beyond to ensure that throughout the pandemic Volleyball has been delivered in a safe way.


It’s brilliant news that the easing of restrictions has been brought forward and all of our Volleyball family, regardless of their vaccination status can now return to competitive Volleyball. We very much look forward to welcoming everyone back on court.”


All members should follow Government guidance around close contact movement restrictions and the wearing of protective masks indoor. Up to date information is available on the HSE Live and Government websites.


Volleyball Ireland’s Covid protocols will be amended and published once further clarity from Sport Ireland has been received.
