22 September - COVID-19 Update

One of the measures announced by Prime Minister Boris Johnson to curb the rising cases of Covid-19 was that indoor team sports will now fall under the ‘Rule-of-Six’.

This measure obviously affects handball, both in terms of training sessions and the potential return to playing matches. We are seeking further clarification regarding the detail behind this measure from the DCMS and from Sport England. We would anticipate a clarification statement from one or both of the above following the PMs broadcast later this evening.

While we look to get the detail behind the announcement, we are advising that you postpone any planned indoor training sessions for adult teams this week.

As soon as we know more, we will update clubs – both by email and via the Zoom call that will take place on 28 September.
