Activities Suspended at Rucker Sports Complex

Madison, IN— Effective Wednesday, July 15th, the City of Madison Parks Department is suspending all activities at the Rucker Sports Complex until at least August 1st. This decision was made after being informed of two positive COVID-19 cases for participants of the complex.

"Today, we learned that two individuals who have visited Rucker Sports Complex tested positive for COVID-19. Upon discussing these results with the Jefferson County Health Department and Mayor Bob Courtney, we believe the best decision for the community’s health and those who use the facility is to suspend all activities at Rucker," said Parks Director Seth Pennington.

As of today, all practices and games are suspended. This includes the city softball and baseball leagues and travel teams that use Rucker and other city parks facilities. All field rentals and tournaments will not be permitted during this time. Additionally, practices and games will not be permitted at John Paul Park.  On August 1st, the parks department will re-evaluate this decision.

All questions should be directed to the City of Madison Parks Department, 812-265-8308. Additional information pertaining to the two individuals who tested positive will not be shared.
