Allow Non Contact Non Team Sport for Exercise

There are strict social distancing guidelines in place for several non contact, non team sports, such as golf and tennis, which provide essential exercise. They are no medical reasons for not allowing people access to these important activities. They have as much benefit as cycling, running and walking and would easily fit within current government guidelines.

Why the contribution is important

Hundred of thousands of people benefit from exercise provided by non contact non team sports such as golf and tennis. As strict social distancing guidelines already exist for them, there is no logic to exclude them from our daily exercises when cycling and running, which are riskier, are allowed.

    As a yoga teacher I totally agree and would hope to reintroduce physical classes when safe to do so with precautions like mats 2 meters apart etc

    I agree with this. Sports like badminton and tennis could be restricted to 'singles only' until doubles can be re-introduced safely. Hands can be washed regularly but you are always a fair distance from your opponents and no need to shake hands. It is more dangerous to stand in supermarkets than play these sports. I do agree tennis and golf would be easiest to reintroduce as they are outside but badminton cannot be played outside at a decent level. But it is a non contact sport
