With the sun shining in Tooting this week, I know it was a relief to many that outdoor sports could resume from Monday 29th March. As a lover of sports myself, I sympathise with everyone who has missed their daily swim, a kickabout with friends, or a game of tennis.
Under current Government guidance, outdoor sports facilities and organised outdoor group sports for adults and children can all resume. You can now also play informal sports with a group of six friends or with any number of people up to two households.
Here is what has reopened in the local area for your sports fix:
Tooting Bec Lido - Open for bookings only and with a number of restrictions in place, including the changing rooms remaining shut for those without a disability. To book a slot at the Lido, please see here.
Tooting Common and Furzedown Rec Tennis Courts - Anyone is able to use the tennis courts, provided that they book in advance. You can book using this link.
Tooting Bec Athletics Track - The athletics track has reopened and organised outdoor activities for adults and children have resumed on the track. Bookings can be made in advance here.
Garratt Park Ball Court - Organised sport will be allowed to take place on the ball court now and groups of six will be able to enjoy the kickabout wall or a group game of basketball.
More information about recreational spaces can be found on the Enable Parks website here.
