Latest Covid & Club Assistance Pack Update (Edition 22 – Amended 08.01.21)

Dear BT Members,

We hope you all had a nice time over the Christmas and New Year break and would like to update you all on some of the lockdown changes since our last update.

Given the latest tightening of COVID restrictions by each of the home nation governments, the following changes have been made to the BT Club Assistance Pack (v22), which everyone should read through to familiarise themselves with what is and isn’t permitted in their respective home nation.

There is also a Summary Table below to summarise and simplify the latest guidance for BT clubs in each of the home nations. We will continue to do our best to keep you up to date with the latest guidance and hope you are all keeping yourselves and your members safe.


Updates to the Club Assistance Pack



As pandemic restrictions ease across the Home Nations, we want to give our members, clubs and event hosts as much information and guidance as possible.

Whilst this is a little complicated by the fact that each Home Nation is moving at a slightly different pace in terms of relaxation of rules, generally we are returning to a situation where all forms of sport, physical activity and events will be permitted in the coming weeks.

A lot of the restrictions are changing from law, where you could previously have been fined for breaching the rules, into a more advice and guidance-based position where governments are recommending people behave in a certain way.

In the table below, we have set out how this guidance could be applied in Taekwondo club and Taekwondo event settings in England, should coaches, venues or event hosts choose to continue applying some Covid security measures.

However, we must stress, these are for individual clubs, venues and event hosts to decide whether to implement.
