Grab Your Footy Boots 'Coz Community Sports Are Officially Back In Business In NSW
Missing your touch footy team? Thankfully the wait till you can do your thing again is almost over if you're in NSW. From July 1 in NSW, community sports teams of all ages will be allowed to play like normal again, the state govt announced today (Wednesday).
Outdoor sports were previously restricted to no more than 10 people, which included players, officials and spectators – meaning a lot of sports were off the cards altogether. The state govt also recently announced that kids' sports comps could return from July 1, too.
Acting Minister for Sport Geoff Lee said guidelines for community sports would be up online later this week. "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."
Visited @BenFordham at @2GB873 today to announce community sport can recommence at the same time as 18 years and under from the start of next month, as the NSW Government lifts more #COVID19 restrictions. #nswpol pic.twitter.com/oaBbzNoavK

In VIC, community sports are still limited to groups of 20 or less, and contact remains banned, which rules out a lot of community favourites (thank god for tennis hey?). In QLD, gatherings of 100 and contact sport will be allowed from July 10.
Yesterday (Tuesday) was the first day Australia recorded no locally transmitted cases of coronavirus since the pandemic began.
