BWL Statement on National Lockdown Restrictions this January

The further announcement by Boris Johnson yesterday, Monday 4 January, shows the gravity of the situation with the fight against COVID19. We’re in the midst of a very serious public health crisis and drastic steps do need to be taken to slow the spread, protect people and their communities and we ask our members and clubs to respect the government guidance.

While we cannot ignore the seriousness of the situation, we remain disheartened that clubs and gyms have again been missed out in being classed as essential services and at a time when the public’s mental and physical well-being need particular attention.

We need to see further support for the sector and will continue to strongly urge the government that action is needed to financially support our clubs.
