Sport England - Hygiene for sport and physical activity

The Sport England webpage has been updated to include the latest government advice on how we can help stop the spread of coronavirus, and includes measures such as social distancing and best practice for cleaning equipment.

It also includes general good practice, and outlines things we should already have been doing before the pandemic.

The advice has been developed to help organisations implement good hygiene across their facilities simply and effectively, no matter the activity, sport or venue.

It's been developed with the Advanced Wellbeing Research Centre, the National Centre for Sport & Exercise Medicine, and The Centre for Behavioural Science and Applied Psychology at Sheffield Hallam University.

Sport England have produced several resources to help you clearly communicate the key hygiene messages outlined on this page to people taking part in sport and physical activity.

Why it matters

Good hygiene practice, by organisations and individuals, will be essential in stopping the spread of coronavirus and will allow us to take part in the sport and physical activity we love.

Everyone involved in sport and physical activity, including those involved in maintaining and working on courts, pitches and sports facilities, has a part to play and it's vital we all understand how we can contribute.

Failure to follow good hygiene practice may lead to an increase in the number of people contracting coronavirus, which in turn could result in a return to a more restrictive lockdown, preventing people taking part in many forms of physical activity.
