Sportsplex To Resume Group Activities on February 1st

For the first time since Nov. 9, 2020, the Planters Bank-Jennie Stuart Health Sportsplex Hopkinsville is resuming limited open gym offerings and group activities.

Strict COVID-19 guidelines, including a mask or face covering requirement for all guests — before, during and after facility participation — will remain in place when the courts and turf field reopen for use Monday, Feb. 1.

Temperature checks and visitor sign-ins will also continue to be required upon entry at the front desk.

Here is the complete list of rules and regulations and how they’ll apply to various groups:

Open gym capacity will be enforced on a first-come, first-serve basis. Daily availability, which will occur during regular business hours of 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. (Mondays-Saturdays) and 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Sundays, can be found by clicking “Today’s Schedule” on the front page of HopkinsvilleSportsplex.com.

No outside tournaments will be allowed at this time. As COVID numbers improve, circumstances change and protocols are relaxed, this restriction may be re-evaluated. The Sportsplex, which celebrated its two-year anniversary Jan. 9, will also continue to offer free walking from 8 a.m. to noon on weekdays. No registration is required.

Additionally, the Sportsplex will be extending the expiration date of all Annual Passes (purchased before Nov. 9, 2020) by three months, making up for the time when the facility was closed for open gym. No further action is needed in order to gain the Pass extension. Day Passes ($5) and Annual Passes ($40) can be purchased on site.
“We are beyond appreciative for the patience and understanding of our guests and supporters during the past few months,” said Sportsplex Facility Coordinator Tony Henson. “The health and safety of our visitors is paramount, which is why we will take and have taken appropriate measures to responsibly resume more activities.”
Batting and golf cages at the Plex will return to appointment-only, as space allows. Designated Cage Nights will also return to the facility and will be announced at a later date.

The Sportsplex will continue to follow Kentucky’s Healthy at Work and Healthy at Sports guidelines, including utilization of social distancing when possible. As the pandemic continues to unfold, the fluidity of conditions could lead to abrupt changes and updates at the discretion of Sportsplex management. Please refer to
