Chief executive welcomes return of grassroots sport and leisure facilities

The Prime Minister has outlined plans for the new tiered system that will come into effect across England from 2 December.

Our chief executive Tim Hollingsworth has welcomed the Prime Minister’s announcement that grassroots sport, activity and leisure facilities will be more widely opened next week.

The news came during the Prime Minister’s address in the House of Commons, outlining the tiered system the country will return to once national restrictions come to an end on Wednesday, 2 December.

He announced that organised sport and physical activity will return under all tiers, though we expect there to be specific guidance for contact activities.

Gyms and leisure facilities will also reopen across the country and there was also positive news about the return of spectators.

Organised activity for elite athletes, U18s and disabled people can also take place across every tier.
