BREAKING: Community sports teams will be allowed to resume competition from July 1, as the NSW Government continues to ease coronavirus restrictions.
Acting Minister for Sport Geoff Lee thanked the community for their patience during the pause on local sports and welcomed its return on July 1.
“Sport is the lifeblood of our community and it gives me great pleasure to say adult sports can return to their competitions at the same time as 18 years and under,” Mr Lee said.
“We have reduced the spread of COVID-19 to the point where further restrictions can be lifted. It is only because communities have followed the strict social distancing guidelines that this announcement is possible.”
Food and beverage stalls at sports facilities will also be permitted to operate, as long as no more than 50 patrons are inside a single venue at any one time.
The State Government has previously announced that children’s sport competitions could return from July 1.
