Good news for those who miss being able to bat a ball on the tennis court or breathe fresh sea air out on a boat.

The Danish sports associations, DGI and DIF, have been working intensly with the Danish health authorities in order to clarify how outdoors spring and summer activities in the many sports associations can take place in a safe way.

Last night the permission came through and members will be notified over the coming days as to how they can start playing and sailing again.

For all outdoor sports activities one requirement will be to arrive changed and ready, so no changing facilities or other meeting places will be open, and people are requested to leave again after they have played and not to stay around. The aim being to avoid crowds of more than 10 people.

On tennis courts for instance only four people at a time will be allowed, a challenge for the many children who normally participate in summer tennis outdoors. The tennis schools will need to plan differently before they can open.

Sailing more than one person per boat will be possible if sailors are able to sail with the same person and limit their sailing to continue doing so. Otherwise sailing in one man boats can take place without problems, however equipment must be cleaned after each use. At harbour areas not more than 10 people should be gathered at a time when setting their boat out to sea ( from ramps etc).

Social distancing and hand hygiene will also be important for all outdoor activities that resume and using your own equipment whenever possible, for shared equipment all contact points are to be cleaned after use.

If you are member of a sports association you will be notified directly as to how and when your activity can resume.
