Following the government’s guidance published on 9 July regarding the permitted return of recreational team sports, British Canoeing is working with Sport England and the relevant disciplines to ensure a safe return of grassroots team-based paddlesport activities. This includes crew boats, canoe polo and rafting.
All sports will be required to submit an action plan and related guidance to the government, demonstrating how these activities will be carried out safely and in a way that mitigates against the risks associated with COVID-19.
These plans will require government approval before they are allowed to restart.
British Canoeing will provide an update as soon as possible once we receive clarification from the government on our action plan for team-based paddling activities.
