The government’s COVID-19 Response – Spring 2021 roadmap is made up of four steps, with Step 2 from April 12.
This means that all outdoor sports facilities, such as tennis and basketball courts, sports pitches, outdoor skateparks and outdoor swimming pools can open.
Outdoor gatherings of six people, under the ‘rule of six’, or two households, can take place. Organised outdoor sport and physical activity for adults and children can return and are exempt from legal gathering limits.
Indoor leisure is open for individuals and households and indoor activities for children. Outdoor attractions and camping are allowed, and community, retail and personal care reopens
Informal sport and physical activity is not covered by any exemptions, and will have to follow the legal gathering limits for outdoors.
Full information on the current rules, a definition of organised outdoor sport and physical activity, and what the next steps in the government’s roadmap mean for sport and activity, are on the frequently asked questions page.
