Return to Play – Matrix

Return to Play – Matrix

British Wheelchair Basketball has highlighted some elements of the staged return guidance within a Matrix, so that participants and clubs can understand the requirements of each stage of Return to Play.

Each stage should be informed by the corresponding Guidance Document, which will be released by British Wheelchair Basketball in due course and will provide more detailed guidance on each stage.

This is a recommended staged return document intended as a starting-point for the clubs and provided by BWB to assist them with their appropriate response to COVID-19.

British Wheelchair Basketball must stress that the information on the ‘Return to Play’ Matrix and Guidance will be continuously review, and updates published. Please always refer to the latest published documentation – the publishing date is written on the front page of both the Return to Play guidance and on the Return to Play Matrix.
