Lidos, pools and gyms set to reopen across England
Sport in England took a major step towards resuming today, as the government announced the latest easing in lockdown measures would allow pools (outdoor and indoor) and gyms to reopen.
Outdoor pools will be the first to welcome swimmers back in the water, with a date of 11th July set (although check your lido’s website and social media to see what additional booking systems may be in place and what date they will be ready to welcome you). Indoor pools, gyms and sports facilities will come a little later, from 25th July. In addition, grass roots sports will be able to start up again from this coming weekend (11th July).
Facilities will be subject to changes though in line with areas including social distancing and cleanliness. For a full guide to these, see the gov.uk page here.
