Swimming, Golf, Badminton Allowed For Fully-Vaccinated!

Fully-vaccinated people in Malaysia can now go swimming, play golf and badminton, amongst other things!

Here is what you need to know!


Swimming, Golf, Badminton Allowed For Fully-Vaccinated!

From 20 August 2021 onwards, fully-vaccinated people in Malaysia are given more sports and recreational privileges.

Who Qualifies For These Privileges?

Only those who are fully-vaccinated according to these requirements can participate in these sports and recreational privileges :

  • More than 14 days after receiving both doses of the Pfizer, AstraZeneca or Sinovac vaccine.
  • More than 28 days after receiving a single dose of the Johnson & Johnson or Cansino vaccine.

Children are currently not being vaccinated. So parents who are fully-vaccinated are ALLOWED to bring their children who are 17 years or younger to participate in these activities as well.

Sports + Recreational Privileges

Sports and recreational premises and facilities are ALLOWED to open, subject to these restrictions :

  • only open from 6 AM until 8 PM,
  • RESTRICTED to only fully-vaccinated individuals, and their children who are 17 years or younger,
  • 60% capacity limit, under supervision,
  • workforce limited to 60%, including management and operations staff, and
  • subject to any rules and restrictions stipulated by local authorities.

New sports and recreational activities that are now open to fully-vaccinated people include :

  • all individual sports or recreational activities that do not require physical touch, with physical distance of 2-3 metres
  • swimming,
  • equestrian sports,
  • shooting,
  • tennis / badminton (single),
  • golf,
  • motorsports and so on.

In addition, fully-vaccinated people are ALLOWED to dine-in at the club house restaurant or cafe.

Sports + Recreational Restrictions

There are a few restrictions though :

  • It is FORBIDDEN to use the changing room, or shower room, at these sports and recreational facilities.
  • You are RESTRICTED to the same district.


Should You Go Swimming Or Play Golf / Badminton?

Frankly speaking, this isn’t a good time to be going out for a swim, or to play golf or badminton, as community spread of COVID-19 is rampant with over 20K new cases reported every day!

However, if you really must, here are some steps to mitigate your risks :

  • if possible, condos should not allow strangers to share the pool at the same time.
  • if possible, book the entire swimming pool for your family so there are no strangers present at the same time
  • try not to bring your unvaccinated children for a swim, unless you can book the entire pool
  • try to play golf alone or with family members who are already living with you, instead of with friends
  • try to play golf without a caddy to help you
  • try to play tennis or badminton with a family member who is already living with you, rather than a friend
  • never use the shower room or changing room
