On Tuesday, a briefing was held by the Office of Sport, which was attended by the Minister for Sport Natalie Ward. There are unfortunately no updates or any indication of when or what a return to sport will look like. They are waiting to see if regional restrictions are lifted on the 10th Sept and Greater Sydney 30th Sept.
It was discussed that a decision has not yet been made regarding vaccination and playing community sports however there is a very heavy push from the Office of Sport, for sport to engage with their members and promote vaccination.
With all of NSW in lockdown, a Board Meeting was held last week and the Directors made the decision to cancel the two NSWPA Spring tournaments – the J K Mackay and Hector King. Ellerston has also cancelled their Spring Tournament.
Please keep an eye on the website for any updates to the calendar.
I will continue to update you as soon as announcements are made and if you have any queries in the meantime, please call.
