Clubs urged to check if they have moved Coronavirus tiers

December 17, 2020 | by Matt Halfpenny


England Boxing member clubs are urged to check if the Coronavirus restrictions in their area have changed following last night’s government review of the current tier system – and how it affects their gyms as a result.

Every area of England was placed into tier 1 (medium alert), tier 2 (high alert) or tier 3 (very high alert) when the UK emerged from a second national lockdown on 2nd December.

Whether those tiers should still apply or be moved up or down were reassessed by government minsters last night and the results confirmed this morning (Thursday 17th December). Changes will take effect from 00.01am on Saturday 19th December.

You can check which tier your area is now in by clicking here.

If the area your club is in has changed tiers, you are urged to take a fresh look at the England Boxing guidance on what is allowed in each tier by clicking here.
