Latest information:

Sunday 27 June 2021

The ACT Government has issued a directive requiring the use of face masks inside. Further information can be found here:


The specific advice provided for sport is as follows:

“When attending sports, participants and referees are required to wear masks before and after games as well as in common areas. Participants and referees are not required to wear masks while competing. Spectators and coaches are required to wear masks at all times.”

Under this requirement, the CPL will require all spectators (INCLUDING INJURY ATTENDANCE), court managers, and duty teams to wear masks. Everyone should wear masks when arriving and departing the venue.

At these stage, no further restrictions have been announced, however this a strong possibility. CPL will continue to monitor the situation, and will provide updates via email and social media as they become available.

We ask that all teams ensure they comply with the mask requirements, and continue to use the Check In CBR app.
