Social and sporting clubs are gradually reopening after the ease of lock down imposed to contain the Covid 19 pandemic. Live is streaming back to the once vibrant clubs, albeit cautiously. Their reopening was preceded by visitations of the Covid 19 team to appraise state of compliance and preparedness. The clubs that have reopened have so far adhered strictly to the government regulations as contained in the protocols by the Presidential Task Force on Covid 19 and the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).
Just like other sectors, the impact of the prolonged lock-down and the aftermath, will be heavily felt by the clubs who will suffer revenue loss from sale of drinks, rents to vendors, rentals of facilities for events, annual renewal fees and membership admission. But there will be more innovations as witnessed in some clubs such as Ikoyi Club, Lagos Country Club, Abeokuta Sports Club and Ibadan Recreation Club. One such innovation is the Abeokuta Sports Club Disinfectant Tunnel donated by a Registered Trustee and a Vice Patron of the Club, Engr. Mutiu Adebowale.
