Government confirms: fitness, sport and swimming 'not affected' by new Rule of Six restrictions

Organised fitness, sports and other leisure activities (including swimming) can continue despite the introduction of the new "Rule of Six" on 14 September – providing that the activities have been through COVID-19-secure protocols.

It means that people can continue to use leisure facilities, such as health clubs, gyms and pools – and exercise classes held within the venues.

The new rule does, however, mean that people should not arrive at these venues socially in groups of more than six.

The government also confirmed that all organised outdoor sports and physical activity events will remain unaffected.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced on 9 September that, from Monday 14 September, it will be illegal for groups of more than six people to take part in social gatherings in England.

The law applies for all parts of England, except places which have a local lockdown and where rules on social interactions are already tighter.

The new "Rule of Six" restrictions will also apply in Scotland, where first minister Nicola Sturgeon said they would come into effect "immediately" on 10 September.

Swim England CEO Jane Nickerson expressed her delight that clubs and swimming lessons would be exempt.

“We expected this would be the case when the announcement was made by the Prime Minister, but we wanted to confirm before updating our affiliated clubs, members, coaches, teachers and swim schools," she said.

"This is excellent news."
