Here is my list. Will any/all these things be shut?

Swimming for adults? Club swimming for children? Tennis clubs for children?

Yes, I think all organised recreational sport, even outdoors, is gone sad

Outdoor team sports?

MB90 Sat 31-Oct-20 21:54:57

Yes all closed

What part of the announcement led you to hope that any of them would remain open? confused

BitGutted Sat 31-Oct-20 21:55:32

Anything "non-essential" closed/cancelled

None of the above is essential more nice to have

It doesn't mean that these things don't greatly enhance people's well-being and stabilise people's mental health but that's how it is unfortunately

wheresmymojo Sat 31-Oct-20 21:57:13

Yes all closed

@Hmmph. Thanks. Tennis isn't mentioned but it's a fair assumption it is banned too.

Just that they are open in some tier 3 places.

Outdoor team sports?

The sports federations are expecting details on Monday but it sounds like amateur football is expected to be off.

Nope. Not food shopping, care, outside exercise or medical.

1stV45 Sat 31-Oct-20 22:01:35

It's supposed to be over by 2nd December, how early to you buy your real tree?!

What about my real Xmas tree shopping??

Does that need to be done in November?

(Although I imagine come December we may all be scrambling for fake trees!)

Everything is shut except overpaid elite footballers it seems, even golf that you can play alone/in households which makes no sense.

AllsortsofAwkward Sat 31-Oct-20 22:02:04

It was pretty clear into the announcement when he mentioned leisure centres it goes without saying recreational activities would be included. Im not sure how you can miss it.

DirtyDancing Sat 31-Oct-20 22:02:40

Yes, yes and yes. It’s basically another lockdown with the following modifications (broadly) schools open, without shielding and with support bubbles this time. Then if you can work from home you have to.

OhTheRoses Sat 31-Oct-20 22:03:13

To be entirely fair it is proposed these things will close at one no it's past midnight on Wednesday. However parliament is voting on this on Wednesday and if they don't back it, constitutionally it cannot happen.
