2020, 16 December
It didn’t come as a surprise that the corona measures were tightened, but we didn’t expect a complete lockdown for 5 weeks. We will try to provide some online classes, but the greater part of the sports programme will be cancelled.
From Saturday December 19th up to and including Sunday January 3rd SCB will be closed completely. It is possible to attend online workouts on the Sports Centre de Bongerd , because especially in these days it’s important to keep moving.
We will try as hard as we can to stream as many classes as possible from January 4th. Check our website.
In these special times, we wish you a Merry Xmas and we hope to see each other very soon in 2021 under different circumstances.
2020, 4 November
The second wave reaches a peak, and gyms must be closed (partially).
Sports Centre de Bongerd will close its doors tonight at 22.00H for at least all groups-lessons and SSA trainings till further notice.

Update 14 October 2020
Once again no good news. After the press conference of the Dutch government, SCB has to deal from Wednesday October 14th 10 pm with the restrictions that team sports and contact sports and the connected competitions are forbidden. The Sports Pub, the dressing rooms and
the showers are closed.
Indoor group classes
Group classes in which we can maintain the 1,5 meter rule are still allowed. We only have to reduce the number of participants of some of the classes and the fitness registration blocks to the maximum of 30 persons per accommodation.
Playing squash is not allowed!
N.B. At this moment there are still registration options open, but from Thursday October 15th the locations will be removed from the reservations which means that you don’t have a registration anymore in ‘MySCB’.
Student sport associations
All trainings of the student sport associations are cancelled until further notice. We are looking for alternatives in close consultation with the teachers in which we can maintain the 1,5 meter rule. Communication about alternatives will be by the Coordinators Sport to the executive boards of the student sport associations, but will not start before Monday October 19th.
Outdoor group classes
All outdoor group classes are cancelled.
It’s not allowed to do sports outside together with more than 4 persons.
Face masks are compulsory in the hallways of SCB and when you have to get, put back or clean equipment at the start or the end of a class.
Sit less, feel better!
Update 31 August 2020
The academic year 2020-2021 will start on Monday August 31st. The corona measures will be for the most unchanged, but from next Monday we will go a little bit further in opening our sports facility: the showers in the dressing room 11-16 of Sports Hall 4 can be used after your workout on weekdays between 09:00-16:30 hours. In this way we hope to give you an option to do sports between classes or work,
when you are allowed to be on campus.

Update 1 July 2020
From July 1 it’s allowed to do sports indoors and outdoors again and is it also allowed to reopen the fitness room.
Fitness and group classes are still under the 1,5 meter restrictions but for
the other contact sports it’s allowed to practice without this measure; however before and after the sports activity you have to keep the 1,5 meter again.
Sports Centre de Bongerd (SCB) will be open this summer with an extensive sports programme. Student sports associations are allowed to continue their trainings outdoors under the guidance of an SCB teacher or an official assistant. In this way we have enough room for scheduling our sports programme indoors within the 1,5 restrictions. When the weather is permitting it’s always possible to find a suitable place outdoors.
The opening hours will be adapted from Saturday July 4 till Monday August 24 on weekdays and Saturdays according the schedule below. On Sundays SCB will be closed.
During the summer a lot of classes and trainings of the student sport associations will be according the regular schedule. For the exact schedule check the sports list at the website or the SCB app (Android and iPhone; Sports Centre de Bongerd). For all classes you have to register and under the effective corona measures that you can read below! The squash courts will open from Monday July 13 with reduced capacity.
The regular sports program will start on Monday August
24; the 8 week courses will start on Monday August 31.
From July 1 SCB will offer a complete sports
programme again and the employee sports rights will be deducted from the salary again. For students the reduction on sports rights for the coming academic year is therefore set on 3,5 x € 8,42 = € 29,47 (round down € 29). Students who left Wageningen already or don’t have the possibility anymore to extend the sports rights are entitled to a restitution. Further information about this will be send by e-mail in August and on the website of SCB.

Students sports rights per month will be extended with the remaining period from the moment SCB can open up the accommodation again.
