Sport and physical activity
You can take part in organised outdoor sport and physical activity, including exercise classes, in any number, provided this follows the relevant guidance (for team sports or for other outdoor licensed physical activity and exercise classes).
Organised indoor sport, exercise classes and other activity groups *are only permitted indoors if is it possible for people to avoid mixing with people they do not live with (or share a support bubble with). Where it is likely that households (or support bubbles) will mix, these activities must not go ahead. Social interaction before and after any sport or exercise should be limited to people from the same household or support bubble.

“We are very proud to support our charity partners in delivering this new campaign because we know with the right support, sport and physical activity has the ability to change the lives of people living with long-term health conditions for the better,” he added.
“This campaign forms part of a longer-term drive by Sport England to change cultural and social norms around long-term health conditions and physical activity.”
Juliet Bouverie, chief executive of the Stroke Association and lead campaign spokesperson, said the campaign was about enjoying being active on the good days and getting through the bad.
“People want to be more active because it improves their mood and wellbeing,” she said. “I’m hugely excited about helping more people living with a health condition feel that physical activity is possible, with lots of ideas about the ways that you can keep moving.”
The campaign will run across TV, radio and social media, encouraging people to visit www.weareundefeatable.co.uk and use #WeAreUndefeatable for inspiration and tips on how to get active in ways that suit them.
Campaign support packs are also being distributed to every GP surgery and community pharmacy in England as part of a wider programme to support healthcare professionals to promote physical activity to their patients.
