What the new Tier 4 means for sport and physical activity

By Llara Munn on January 4th, 2021 - comments

On Saturday 19 December, the Prime Minister announced that a new tier of coronavirus (Covid-19) restrictions would be introduced across certain parts of England.

On Thursday 31st Lincolnshire was included in Tier 4.

The new regulations will have implications for sport and physical activity: for the full Sport England guide please click here.

In short:

Indoor gyms and sports facilities will close.

Outdoor sports courts, outdoor gyms, golf courses, outdoor swimming pools, archery/driving/shooting ranges, riding centres and playgrounds can remain open for individual exercise, and for people to use with others within your household, support bubble, or with one person from another household.

Organised outdoor sport for under 18s and disabled people will be allowed.

We will continue to update our website as the situation develops.
