Excellent news that we can now open up for bookings for East Lothian under 18s and Adults. Juniors that are under 18 from the bordering council areas can book if they surf regularly with us (there is an allowance for junior travel for sport). At the moment for Adults and Juniors (that don’t attend regularly) outside East Lothian please book from the 26th April (we hope future updates will bring this date forward). Booking options in April will appear shortly on this website.

UPDATE:

The First Minister yesterday provided an update to the Scottish Parliament on COVID-19 and related restrictions. The statement sets out key changes to permitted outdoor sport and exercise that will come into effect from Friday 12th March.

The First Minister also noted that she will set out a clearer timetable for exiting lockdown next week, including an updated level system due to come into effect later in April.

The key changes for outdoor sport and exercise in level 4 areas are:

Outdoor gatherings – adults 18 and over
The maximum numbers for socialising outdoors will increase to 4 adults from 2 households. This applies to social and recreational purposes as well as for exercise.

Outdoor gatherings – 12 to 17-year olds
The maximum numbers for socialising outdoors will be 4 individuals from 4 households. This applies to social and recreational purposes as well as for exercise.

Outdoor sport & group exercise – 12 and over
Up to 15 people can take part in outdoor non-contact sport and organised group exercise.
(NB: Guidance already permits this for under 12s.)

Travel restrictions
People should stay as close to home as possible, in line with current travel restrictions, however some flexibility will be given to under 18s to travel across local authority boundaries to take part in sport. Further clarity on this will be provided when it is available.
