• Sport England have displayed the following guidance on their website:

“For close-contact sports specifically, the government is advising that these are not resumed if social distancing and government guidance cannot be followed.  This is due to the increased risks of transmission of Covid-19, because of the proximity of participants and contact between them.  However, activities that follow government guidelines can go ahead if they follow guidance on social distancing and indoor facilities.  Exercise classes in these facilities are exempt from the new laws on social gatherings.  Any activities which involve contact between participants or contact with equipment that would contravene social distancing guidance (such as pad work) should not go ahead. We’re working with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport and NGBs to allow the safe return of close-contact sports to happen as soon as possible.”
