Senior Sport Returns
Updated: Oct 19, 2020
SENIOR sporting competitions across the region will be back in action from 1 July, with Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall today welcoming the further easing of the State’s COVID-19 restrictions, to allow the recommencement of adult community sport.
Mr Marshall said initially the decision was to only allow junior sport, 18 years and under, to start from next month however that’s now changed to include all senior sport.
“Today’s announcement is a huge win for bush people, with winter sports like rugby league, netball, soccer and hockey all-important in boosting social wellbeing and providing income for local small businesses,” Mr Marshall said.
Mr Marshall said, on the basis of health advice, crowds could not at this point gather in the stands.
