It is pleasing to be the bearer of good news. Excitingly the Acting Minister of Sport, Hon Geoff Lee has announced this morning on 2GB that ‘all’ community sport can now return from 1 July 2020. That is adults as well as juniors. To view the full interview, click here.

This is fantastic news, and we are awaiting full details from the Minister which he advised would-be available later this week concerning protocols and measures that will need to be undertaken.

Once we have full details from the Government over the protocols, we will cross-check those with our sport has developed and will communicate with you all any alterations.

It is important to note that the restrictions on Return to Train remain in place until 1 July.

So dust off your boots, get your teams organised and be ready to play again.

All our valued volunteers no have a clear indication of when they can start their competitions up and also the sport developed protocols to ensure your safe participation. It will still look a little different for a while, to ensure we maintain proper health and safety protocols- but we can play again.

Now that a Return to Play date has been provided, further announcements around NSWTA events will be advised soon.

We are grateful for your ongoing patience and support during this time. While earlier than expected, the announcement provides our Season 1 Affiliates with an excellent opportunity to get up and to run competitions, even if only for a shortened season- Were back!
