COVID-19 UPDATED - 29 Nov 2020




Following the Government announcement on Saturday 31 October, we are deeply disappointed to confirm that roller sports and activities in England will be suspended until the English national lockdown, beginning on Thursday 5 November, is lifted. All roller sports and activities in England following the BRSF Return to Play roadmap are impacted.



The below updates do not come into effect until Wednesday 2nd December.


This guidance has been updated based on the current information available from the UK Government regarding the local restriction tiers in England effective from Wednesday 2nd December 2020.

 

Please note the guidance is continually evolving and is subject to change with little to no notice.

Notes regarding travelling between England Tiers 

(applicable to all regardless of age, including parents of children aged 17 and under)

 

If you live in a Tier 1 area and travel to an area in a higher tier you should follow the rules for that area while you are there. Avoid travel to or overnight stays in Tier 3 areas other than where necessary, such as for work, education, youth services, to receive medical treatment, or because of caring responsibilities. You can travel through a Tier 3 area as part of a longer journey.

 

If you live in a Tier 2 area, you must continue to follow Tier 2 rules when you travel to a Tier 1 area. Avoid travel to or overnight stays in Tier 3 areas other than where necessary, such as for work, education, youth services, to receive medical treatment, or because of caring responsibilities. You can travel through a Tier 3 area as a part of a longer journey.

 

If you live in a Tier 3 area, avoid travelling to other parts of the UK, including for overnight stays other than where necessary, such as for work, education, youth services, to receive medical treatment, or because of caring responsibilities. You can travel through other areas as part of a longer journey.
