Taking Part in Sport and Exercise in Wales – the Guidance
Updated on 23rd April 2021
In the latest Welsh Government review a number of changes to restrictions, and a new roadmap for easing of future restrictions, was announced.
The changes mean additional sport and physical activity will be allowed.
From Saturday 24 April
The rule of 6 will allow for up to 6 people from 6 households to meet outdoors, not including children under 11 years of age or carers from those households.
From Monday 26 April
Outdoor attractions, including outdoor swimming pools, will be allowed to reopen, while outdoor hospitality can also resume.
Organised outdoor activities for up to 30 people will be able to take place.
From Monday 3 May
Gyms, leisure centres and fitness facilities being able to reopen.
Relaxations planned for 17 May will be brought forward to the 3 May, including:
The resumption of indoor supervised activities for children.
Indoor organised activities for up to 15 adults (such as exercise classes and swimming lessons) and the re-opening of community centres.
Elite sporting events would need to be restricted to those athletes given elite status by Sport Wales and organisers must ensure they have approval from the relevant local authority to open the premises/facility. Spectators will be prohibited from attending sporting events.
Read current Alert level 4 guidance.
See the Sport Wales pages for exercise and activities you can do at home.
We will update our guidance as soon as information is available.
IMPORTANT NOTE: You must follow official guidance from your governing body to resume organised activities.
