Sport and physical activity
In line with guidelines from national sporting bodies, you can take part in sport and physical activity outdoors.
Organised indoor exercise classes are only permitted…
if it is possible for people to avoid mixing in with people you do not live with (or share a support bubble with).
- Organised indoor team sport is no longer exempt from the rule of 6.
This means that organised indoor team sport should only take place in groups of up to 6 people (unless an exemption or easement applies).
There is an exemption for indoor sport for people with disabilities, so this can continue in any number as long as undertaken in line with published COVID-secure guidance.
- Other organised indoor sport, including indoor exercise classes, can continue to take place with larger numbers present, provided that participants are in separate and distinct groups of up to 6 people (or larger discrete groups from the same household or support bubble) which do not mix with other groups.
If separate groups are likely to mix, these indoor activities should not go ahead.
- Organised outdoor team sport, outdoor exercise classes and outdoor licensed physical activity are still exempt from the rule of 6, and can happen in any number as long as undertaken in line with published COVID-secure guidance.
- All supervised activities for under-18s, including indoor and outdoor sports and exercise groups, are exempt (provided relevant guidance is followed and risk assessments carried out). Social interaction before and after playing any sport should be limited and only take place in separate and distinct groups consisting of up to 6 people (or larger discrete groups from the same household or support bubble).
- Certain businesses are required to close between 10pm and 5am if they sell food or drinks. Sport facilities such as gyms, leisure centres and sport clubs are not required to close, however hospitality areas which sell food and drink (such as cafes and bars) must close at 10pm. This does not apply to dispensing machines such as vending or coffee machines. Delivery services and drive-through services can continue after 10pm, where applicable.
- Where a sport facility sells food and drink to consume on site, customers must eat and drink at a table. In licensed premises, food and drink must be ordered from, and served at, a table.
There are exceptions to enable disability and youth sport and physical activity indoors, in any number.
You should follow the guidance on:
In all areas of England, you should remember ‘Hands. Face. Space’:
- Hands – wash your hands regularly and for 20 seconds
- Face – wear a face covering in indoor settings where social distancing may be difficult, and where you will come into contact with people you do not normally meet
- Space – stay 2 metres apart from people you do not live with where possible, or 1 metre with extra precautions in place (such as wearing face coverings or increasing ventilation indoors)
