Thirty-two sports (and not one more) to practice

No contact, not in a team, without a locker room, not in a swimming pool. But for which sporting discipline is it still possible to wear sneakers. Sports Minister Dan Kersch has delivered his referees.

No contact, not in a team, without a locker room, not in a swimming pool. But for which sporting discipline is it still possible to wear sneakers. Sports Minister Dan Kersch has delivered his referees.

The whistle was blown. No more total confinement, welcome to the “new normal”, to use Xavier Bettel’s words. And what is true for businesses, businesses or the daily life of every citizen since May 11 is just as true for athletes. No, it’s not just solo jogging that you can do according to the new guidelines. Even the Football regains its rights, that is to say if the field of authorized activities is vast …

The new rules of the game are simple, in the mouth of the Minister of Sports Dan Kersch (LSAP): the outdoors above all, no physical contact between practitioners, a distance to be respected (two meters), changing rooms prohibited access all like showers in sports facilities, and no competition possible. A red card (in other words a ban on opening) is issued not only to fitness clubs, fitness rooms but also to all of Luxembourg’s swimming pools closed until further notice.


Beware of the verdict of the scales! Footballers and other top athletes risk the yo-yo effect at the end of confinement, when they will have to regain a healthy weight after several months of reduced activity.


From A to V, are therefore permitted in compliance with these instructions: Football, l‘Athletics, therowing, the baseball and softball, theclimbing on natural site, balls and petanque, the canoe and the kayak, the cricket, the cycling, the soccer (but not more than twenty …), golf and mini golf, the field hockey, a pack including the Crosse, ultimate frisbee, gaelic sports and footgolf, the market popular, the motorbike, the swim in bathing waters, outdoor course (hook-type), the peach, the diving (outside the swimming pools), the skateboard, motor sports (like the karting), the aeronautical sports, thehorse riding (outdoor only), outdoor water activities (waterski, barefoot, wakeboard, wakesurf), the tennis, the archery (outside the rooms) on shoot (again still outside), the triathlon (with swimming in bathing waters) as well as sail.

Freedom to the communes

The list established by the Ministry of Sports includes even rugby. But there, it will take a lot of imagination to imagine a practice without touching, without throwing the ball from hand to hand and less than 15 per team …

For the time being, none of the 102 municipalities in Luxembourg has chosen to reopen any of the outdoor sports facilities. But Minister Dan Kersch leaves it to the mayors and aldermen. It will still be necessary that access to the various city-stadiums or skate tracks, for example, can be done in complete sanitary security for the practitioners.
