Sport England Covid Step 3 forecast

Bowling News


Sport England has just posted a forecast on what it expects the Government to say about Step 3 and what changes that will bring to all sports including bowling. They do provide a health warning with this statement that it is subject to change once the Government make their announcement later today but obviously it should be a better-informed forecast than any other source. A summary of what they are forecasting is below.


  • Facilities: All sports facilities can open. This includes facilities which can be used for sport but are primarily used for leisure (such as trampoline parks, bowling alleys and ice rinks) or which provide physical activity which is not a recognised sport (such as airsoft venues).

  • Changing rooms: Changing rooms can open, but participants should be encouraged to avoid or minimise use where possible.

  • Spectators: Spectators will be permitted to view events on both public and private land in Step 3, but need to adhere to social distancing rules and social gathering limits (groups of 30 outdoors and six people/two households indoors).

  • Travel: You can leave your home to exercise and take part in informal and organised sport and physical activity. Car sharing will be permitted in Step 3 for sport and physical activity.

  • Hospitality: Clubhouses and facilities that serve food and drink can open. In Step 3, both indoor and outdoor hospitality will be permitted.
