In their daily briefing the UK government has announced that outdoor pools can reopen to the public from 11th July followed by indoor gyms, pools and leisure centres on 25th July. Meaning that indoor exercise in community spaces will be permitted by the end of the month and Cheerleading clubs will be able to return to training.
“The Government has outlined the measures that will allow … sports facilities to reopen from 25 July, ensuring millions of people can get back into more sport and fitness activities.”
“It also supports the re-opening of sports halls which are vital to the return of play for many sports, including badminton and volleyball. Guidance produced by National Governing Bodies will complement the government guidance and help ensure indoor sports can be played safely from July 25.
Venues must ensure they can enable customers, staff and volunteers to maintain social distancing before, during and after participation.”
This is fantastic news for clubs and athletes who are eager to get back to Cheer training!
