An Active City for All; our outdoor spaces and places

Following measures to curtail the spread of Covid-19, the Government has now announced that the nation will enter step 4 of their roadmap out of lockdown.

This means that, in continuation of guidance set out in step 1, all our outdoor sports facilities such as sports courts, table tennis tables, MUGAs (multi-use games areas) and spaces designated for formally organised outdoor sports and physical activity are open for use by individuals and groups beyond their houshold or support bubble.

Whilst we are looking forward to welcoming communities back to use even more of our facilities, we are acutely aware that the pandemic is not over.

It is still important that you stay vigilant and follow government advice on social distancing, wearing a mask, and hand hygeine. You can find out more information on the goverment website.

Staying active is vital to everyone’s physical and mental wellbeing. Therefore, in line with current Government guidelines all our parks, open spaces and playgrounds will remain open. You can find details on our parks and open spaces here.

Please help us to help you and others stay active and maintain an Active City for All by remembering hands -face-space whenever you are outdoors.

There are loads of great ways you can get and stay active at home or out in your garden, if you have one, including ideas to help everyone stay active on our activity finder, the Sport England website or search #StayInWorkOut on social media.

We will continue to keep this situation under constant review. You can find information about coronavirus (COVID-19) including what you can do to protect yourself, and the impact of the disease on our services on the main Council website.

For general information and support as a London-based activity provider, please visit the London Sport COVID-19 page.
