  • Closure of the RUC

    23 March 2020

    In response to the ACT Government’s announcement regarding the compulsory shut down of all non-essential services, the RUC has closed our doors to members and the wider public. 

    This is a measure that everyone at the RUC is on board to ensure the community is safe. 

    During these difficult times the RUC is not only committed to looking after our community, but we are also committed to looking after our staff and will use this downtime to refresh the Club and review our menus. 

    The RUC is a community-based Club and we cannot survive without our members. In the coming days we will be announcing measures to ensure we can continue being a part of your lives, even if it’s not face to face. 

    View the latest message from the RUC’s Secretary Manager, Jeremy Wilcox here:

    12.00pm Monday – shutdown time for The RUC as part of keeping Canberra safe. Hear from Jeremy about today’s plan and what we are doing at the RUC to play our part. Leave us your comments on what you think we can be doing next to keep our community connected.#WeAreCBR #Canberra #ClubsACT

  • The RUC COVID-19 Update

    Current as of 8:30 am 18/03/2020

    On Monday morning ACT Chief minster Andrew Barr declared a state of emergency in the ACT following the spread of the COVID-19 Coronavirus.

    We will follow advice and recommendations provided by ACT Health and the Australian Government and we’ll act is in the best interests of our patrons and staff.

    The advice we are currently getting from the ACT and Federal Governments is that venues and clubs such as the RUC should remain open, but patrons and staff should exercise caution and monitor the situation as it changes.

    The Club will be closed only at the direction of a regulatory authority or by resolution from the Club’s Board of Directors.

    The banning of organised events with crowds of over 500 people has caused the suspension of Super Rugby and the immediate future of the NRL and AFL are unclear. As it currently stands, the John I Dent Cup will still be starting in just under two weeks.

    We remain dedicated to providing sports fans in Canberra the best possible viewing experience and will work hard to ensure we can offer a safe and comfortable environment at the RUC.

    There are no current restrictions on Australians participating in or attending local sports and bowling is a great non-contact and hygienic way to stay active. However, in any team environment there will be increased proximity and duration of physical contact that can facilitate the transmission of respiratory and gastrointestinal pathogens. We kindly encourage anyone concerned about their health to exercise extra caution when bowling. Read more
