The national picture is very varied – this means information can be patchy in some areas, but where we have a greater understanding of the local situation, we are able to use that to get more activity started:
- Freedom Leisure has opened some of its sites in Sussex, so we’ve been able to support coaches to get on court and begin working with young players again
- Many of our national operator partners are working with their local authorities to get their sports halls opened as soon as possible and will share confirmed dates with us once they are available
- Kent County Council has written to clubs using school sites to confirm there will be no hiring of school sports halls till January 2021. We are lobbying, with the support of partners such as Sport England, with the Department for Education to identify ways of opening school facilities for community use.
Any information we have on facilities will be shared via our activity finder from the beginning of August.
