Stay Safe and Stay Healthy

SportBU Service Updates

General SportBU Message.

Many of you will have watched the announcement from the Prime Minister with unease as we enter another period of uncertainty, with all the practical and emotional challenges that comes with another national lockdown for across England.

Once again, we are all going to be going through the same issues that these restrictions bring, but with very individual challenges and concerns. It’s really important that we continue to support each other, and the BU community as a whole.

The new restrictions came into force on the 5th January and will last until at least mid-February. In a similar way to the first lockdown, during this time, you must not leave your home except for permitted reasons. These include shopping for essentials, to seek medical assistance, or to exercise. You cannot leave your home to meet socially with anyone you do not live with or you are not in a support bubble with.

Please follow this guidance to save lives, and to protect the NHS and those around you.

Following these restrictions, the SportBU facility will be closed until further notice including all programmes and sessions.

Health and safety guidelines may change from sporting governing bodies as government guidance is updated. We will endeavour to keep you up-to-date with the latest changes here and on our social media channels.

Please don't hesitate to connect with us via social media (@SportBU), our website or by emailing the relevant department that you require. If you have specific questions not addressed here or on our website, email one of the teams below. Do keep in mind the response time might be a little longer than what you’re used to.

*We’ll also be sharing tips on how to stay healthy and well during this period via the Premium Portal section on our website. Our customers have always been at the heart of SportBU and we’re grateful to you for your ongoing support.

Sincerely
The SportBU Team
