With lockdown restrictions continuing to ease in line with the Government roadmap, many forms of sport and physical activity have now returned.

To help make this experience as attractive and enjoyable as possible for participants, Sport England have highlighted 'five simple ways you can help people return to sport and physical activity'.

These tips, based on recent insights around attitudes, intentions and feelings about getting back into activity, can help sports clubs and other providers consider how to make the best of their return to activity and include:

  • Showcasing your safety measures
  • Emphasising the enjoyment factor
  • Showing the benefits, not telling the benefits
  • How to ease people back in
  • Focus on keeping it cheap or free

To view these tips in full, visit the Sport England Return to Play page, where you can also check for information on current restrictions and explore the detailed return to play insights.

Last week Swim England announced the 17 swimmers in their Performance Squad for 2019-20 and I am delighted to retain my place for the coming season. This squad is at the pinnacle of the Talent Pathway and once again, I will be given the opportunities to race and train abroad. Also, I will have access to physio and sport psychology support and nutrition education. It will all form part of the bespoke training plan I have been offered. We all met for a training camp last weekend to kick off the season. It was exciting and motivational. Am looking forward to training hard and seeing what this season brings.
