COVID-19 and How North Yorkshire Sport is Operating

In light of the ongoing situation around the COVID-19 pandemic and ongoing Government measures to contain it, North Yorkshire Sport are confirming our position regarding our working practices and our public facing events.

All public events and activities up until the 4th of May 2020 have now been confirmed as cancelled, and any events taking place after this date will be reviewed closer to the time. We will issue further statements in due course.

The Yorkshire PE Awards Ceremony scheduled for the 26th June has now also been postponed until 16th October.

Our offices, including the Bilton Health and Wellbeing Hub in Harrogate are now closed until further notice and all building user groups have been informed.

For our staff, whose health remains the highest priority, they are all equipped to work remotely, and while this presents certain challenges, we are set up to maintain regular contact and for work to continue in most areas. You can contact them by phone and email as normal.

In relation to supporting sports clubs or physical activity settings please visit our webpage here.

We are currently collating any advice and useful information around how the population of North Yorkshire and York can try to stay active whilst at home. This will be shared over our website and social media channels here:

We will be regularly reviewing the situation and Government advice (click here for the latest advice), and will issue further statements in due course.

Thank you for your understanding at this difficult time, and if you have any questions please don't hesitate to get in touch,

The North Yorkshire Sport Team
