Bringing the sport back to basics was my first priority, so I am happy that we are reopening the sport and the gyms at all levels in awareness of the significant health benefits.
I am also pleased that we were able to deploy the hubs faster than planned, taking a cautious approach and starting with the least risky areas.
I’m sure the sport will do everything it can to ensure the safety of the supporters and that they will do their part and take care of each other until we can bring everyone back safe and sound.

Football in the top four of English leagues has been played behind closed doors since his return in June after his first suspension for coronavirus.
The Prime Minister said he was looking forward to the prospect of the return of supporters in small numbers, but that he was looking forward to working with the government to raise that number to a higher level and put an end to the work of clubs suffering financial losses.
He went on to say: Our priority remains to coordinate with the DCMS and the Roadmap group Sport Technology and Innovation for pilot events that will help our clubs rapidly increase their capacity.
Burnley manager Sean Diche said Monday’s announcement was the starting point.
Even though it is a limited number, it brings back the feeling and connection, said Dice for his team home Premier League match against Crystal Palace.
It is to be hoped that it will be introduced soon afterwards. We missed our fans.
The English Football League (EFL) is considering postponing some of its games until next week to take advantage of this plan.
The FEL has a full fixture calendar with matches in the first and second divisions, which are played from 1 to 2. The month of December takes place.
No decision has been made yet, but any first- or second-line club that has requested a transfer from Tuesday to Wednesday is likely to receive a positive response if there is no conflict with the transfer conditions.
Fans have always believed that football should be treated in the same way as other sectors, according to a statement from the Football Fans Association.
We welcome today’s announcement, which indeed suggests that this will be the case, and we look forward to further details.
For many inferior and illegal clubs in particular, the safe access of fans to the stadiums is an absolute prerequisite for survival in a very difficult season.
Clubs, leagues and the safety services of the sports fields have worked hard to make the stadiums safe and we hope that this is the first step towards a return to normal life.
Grassroots sport can take place in all areas, but the Department of Digital, Cultural, Media and Sport Affairs (DCMS) has stated that at level 3 areas certain restrictions will apply to activities with the highest risk.
His statement was added: Non-elite viewers can attend the events according to Covid-secure guidelines for each level.
Home sports can be resumed, but because of the higher risk of coronavirus transmission indoors, the DCMS indicates that there will be restrictions on certain activities, depending on the level of preparedness of the local population.

This revival of the sport, both in terms of the long-awaited return of the fans and in terms of leisure, is an important and encouraging milestone.
The second phase of government sport has had disastrous consequences for the population: Tens of thousands of clubs, gyms, swimming pools and workplaces were at risk, activity levels declined, the physical and mental health of the participants was damaged and physical activity was seen as the most important factor in the country’s recovery.
The return of popular sport will be celebrated by many, especially after it was not named as a direct beneficiary in last week’s £300 million television rescue programme.
But frustration persists and gyms are disappointed that group activities are limited in some areas, disproportionately affecting women for whom exercise is particularly important. Other requests have also been made to the public authorities to provide more financial support to the municipal sports sector.
Similarly, for large parts of the country located in high-risk areas, it is not clear how many football or rugby clubs will be in the front line and can take on up to 4,000 fans.
For many big clubs, who firmly believe that they should have a third of their territory full at the beginning of last month, this will not be a great consolation in the light of an unprecedented financial crisis, and they will want this figure to rise rapidly. In fact, some clubs said they would lose money if they only opened their halls to 2,000-4,000 fans.
There are also concerns about equity if only certain teams can reopen the tourniquets.
But eight months after the fans were last seen at regular sporting events in England, there was at least some hope and a possible road to recovery.

What was the reaction?
According to Tim Hollingsworth, CEO of Sport England, it is a great honour that so many organisations and individuals have worked so hard to prove how safe their operations and buildings are and to say so clearly what they are doing to reduce risks.
Since the first, there is now a clear understanding of the vital benefits of sport and activity, not only for your physical well-being, but also what is important for maintaining your mental health.
In the early winter months it is more important than ever to have a number of safe options available.
In a joint statement by certain equestrian authorities it was stated that although he has been a member of the team since 1 January, he is no longer allowed to participate in horse racing. June had been working behind closed doors, but the tests showed no sign of Covid-19 transmission.
We know that the number of seats is initially limited and not all seats will be allowed for spectators, but this is a step forward, said Nick Rust, Executive Director of the British Equestrian Authority.
I am sure that all of our runners will follow the government’s health guidelines when they return to the race and this will allow us to increase the number of participants.
Prime Minister Rugby CEO Darren Childs said: We won’t know the exact impact on our clubs until the levels are announced on Thursday, so my team is willing to work with the government to tackle the problems of fan emergence in a way that minimises health risks.
Keeping the competition intact was my top priority during the pandemic, and now we have a basis on which to develop the game and build long-term financial stability.
