Monday, April 26, is also a key date for sport as outdoor sport facilities can reopen, including golf and tennis courts.
From this date, outdoor underage non-contact sports training can start again in pods of up to 15 players. This means no matches or events can take place with the exception of selected high performance and professional sporting activity.
