In line with the Government’s plans for re-opening more of the sport and recreation sector including gyms and indoor training facilities, we have updated our advice to reflect that, from 25 July, gyms and other indoor training facilities may be opened. Our new guidance (v4.2) is now available below:

Please note all changes are highlighted in yellow and a list of changes are contained at the back of the document.

British Rowing has made a submission to the Department of Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) in relation to the ‘teamsport’ aspects of rowing. This submission relates particularly to crew boats in a rowing context. We are currently awaiting feedback from the DCMS review of this proposed advice and will publish as we are able to.

In summary, the current position of our advice for rowing is:
