Community sports groups will be permitted to continue next month, following the ease coronavirus restrictions by the NSW Government.


Present restrictions for outdoor sports is limited to 10 people, including players, officials and spectators, but come July 1 those rules will have lifted.

Food and refreshment stalls down at sports offices will likewise be allowed to work, provided no more than 50 people are inside a venue at any one time.

Speaking on Nine Radio, Acting Minister for Sport Geoff Lee expressed gratitude toward the community for their understanding during the delay on neighbourhood sports.

Mr Lee went on to say, “All community sports will return from July 1 and everybody can play, it’s game on for the whole community, whether it’s under 18 over 18 competition,”

“We have reduced the spread of COVID-19 to the point where further restrictions can be lifted,” he said.

“It is only because communities have followed the strict social distancing guidelines that this announcement is possible.”

The Acting Minister said the guidelines were in progress and would be made available online by the end of the week.

For the first time since the pandemic begun, Australia yesterday recorded no community transmitted cases of coronavirus.
