HANOVER — As the omicron surge wanes, Dartmouth College is reopening Leede Arena and Thompson Arena to the public for basketball and hockey games.
Between Dec. 22 and Jan. 18, only guests of players and coaches on a pass list were permitted to attend indoor events. Dartmouth then permitted students, faculty and staff with a valid ID. Now, fans who purchase tickets online or over the phone in advance will be admitted — walk-up sales are still unavailable. All tickets will be marked as general admission, with no assigned seating.
All fans are still required to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative test within three days of the event. Masks are still mandatory and concessions will not be sold, with no outside food allowed in. A Dartmouth news release indicated that these policies will be in place for the rest of the winter season.
Protocols at the Dartmouth tennis and squash venues are unchanged — attendees there are still limited to player guests.
It’s been a rough winter for the Big Green on both the hardwood and the ice. The men’s basketball team has come up just short time after time in conference play and sits in seventh place at 2-6 in the Ivy League and 5-14 overall. The women are tied for last with Brown with just one league win and two overall. The men’s hockey squad is also in the ECAC Hockey cellar, while the women are second to last.
