Further to the UK Government’s advice this evening British Gymnastics, Welsh Gymnastics and Scottish Gymnastics now ask for all gymnastics clubs and providers within the UK to follow the directive and temporarily close their physical premises as soon as they reasonably can, to ensure social contact across the UK is minimised as much as possible.
The Government issued a mandate for venues including gyms, leisure centres, clubs, cafes, pubs and restaurants to close from this evening, Friday 20 March. The Government also announced an extensive package of further financial support to minimise the financial distress this UK wide directive will have on everyone concerned.
We will all ensure in the coming days that we understand the financial support that you can access. We’d urge our clubs to continue to monitor communications as we share with you further updates on our dedicated Club Support page.
Please bear with us over the next few days while we work through your questions and gather the information we need to support you early next week.
Rest assured that British Gymnastics and the home nation governing bodies will be focussed on helping you through these uncertain times.
