While Alameda County moved to the Yellow Tier of the State’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy on June 8, Rec Sports is still planning to make any major changes to their operation in late June as they await an anticipated full reopening of the State’s economy on June 15, additional public health guidance, and work to make logistical and operational changes to accommodate new audiences.

As a reminder, Rec Sports hopes to expand access the following services in late June to all UC Berkeley faculty and staff:

  • Reservations for in-person activities at the Recreational Sports Facility including Group Exercise classes, weight room, and cardio equipment usage
  • Lap swim reservations at Spieker Pool and Golden Bear Pool
  • Use of Golden Bear Tennis Courts located on the Clark Kerr Campus on weekday evenings and weekends
  • UC Aquatics Center Kayak and Paddleboard Rentals

More details on policies and procedures will be shared in the coming weeks.

Rec Sports expects to still have capacity limits for these services, as they work to thoughtfully transition after a year of pandemic operations. For this reason they do not anticipate being able to welcome back non-UC Berkeley affiliated community members to these services just yet. They hope to have updates and more information for their community soon!
