I have been asked why over 18s are not able at the moment to return to training.
The new tier 3 rules that affect us are:
- leisure and sports facilities may continue to stay open, but group exercise classes (including fitness and dance) should not go ahead. Saunas and steam rooms should close
- organised indoor sport, physical activity and exercise classes cannot take place indoors. There are exceptions for indoor disability sport, sport for educational purposes and supervised sport and physical activity for under-18s
Having said this Swim England today are seeking clarification with government as to how this affects our over 18 swimmers. We may have some more news Friday.
Fingers crossed everyone!!!
