WALES

Guidance for Sport and Physical Activity

Anyone can play sport or exercise in a group of up to 30 people outdoors or 15 people indoors, if this is part of an organised activity managed for example by a gym, a leisure centre or a sports club. Coaches and match officials would generally be regarded as participants so the limit of 30 or 15 should include them. However, anybody who is there to organise or support the activity, if they are working or providing a voluntary service, can also attend and do not need to be considered within the limit of 30 or 15. Children aged under 11 are also excluded from the maximum number in the gathering.

Simultaneous gatherings of groups and individuals are also allowed, both indoors and outdoors, where there is sufficient space to do so safely and independently.

Organisers and those responsible for the premises have a duty to take all reasonable measures to reduce the risk of spreading coronavirus, including ensuring the space allows for social distancing.


The BTC works closely with DCMS and all Home Country sports organisations and whilst the above is current at today’s date, the BTC advises instructors continually check their Home Country Return to Sport guidelines as these are subject to frequent change.

Individuals or organisation having any queries should please direct these to Trevor Nicholls [email protected].
