Pools & Swim Lessons Under Tier 3

swimming under tier 3 in londonLondon and Tier 3: What does it mean?

In tough times-and for sure 2020 has been full of it- one of the things makes things hard is the uncertainty.

With London being out under tier 3 of restrictions from Wednesday December 16, life has changed again.

Understanding and decoding tier systems hasn’t been the easiest job.

With closing of hospitality places like restaurants and many leisure venues like museums and theatres across London,  many people have been confused if the swimming pools are closed again and swim lessons are cancelled.

So in this blog we are decoding the tier 3 for you.

Swimming under tier 3 can continue

In London, we are so pleased to have the schools, universities staying open. Also, gyms, leisure centres and swimming pools can keep operating under tier 3 but, with some changes.

As far as physical activity and sports goes, all grassroots sport and structured activities like swim lessons can continue for all under-18’s and disability groups under tier 3.

Leisure swimming can keep going for all ages

Children swimming lessons as structured activities can continue both as group and private.

It means all  🏊  lessons for children can continue and ‘Parent & Child’ swimming lessons for babies & toddlers will continue

For adults and over 18s age group of swimming clubs they can do lap swimming but, without a coach on the poolside.

For adult swim lessons, group swimming lessons cannot be offered to adults but, private or one-to-one adult swim lesson are still O.K under tier 3.

Other group activities for adults like underwater rugby, scuba diving clubs and master swimming clubs have to stop.
