Outdoor non-contact sports have been given the green light as the Victorian Government moves to the third step of the roadmap for reopening regional Victoria.
Sports such as cricket and tennis can resume for adults with the necessary number of participants, plus coaches and umpires. Spectators however are not allowed.
Meanwhile all outdoor sport for people 18 years and younger has been given the go ahead. This includes contact sports such as football and soccer. Indoor contact sports such as basketball remain off limits. Spectators are allowed at matches if they are supporting children or players with additional needs.
Toilets and community changerooms can open, while canteens, kiosks or at-venue dining facilities can open subject to the industry guidelines.
There is good news in relation to recreational activities as well.
Outdoor swimming pools and skateparks can reopen and outdoor personal training is permitted for groups of up to 10 people. This is in addition to a personal trainer.
A cap of 10 people extends to any cohort participating in an individual outdoor community sport. This includes athletics, cycling, walking, bushwalking and trailwalking.
Indoor facilities such as gyms remain closed, however trainers are free to carry out broadcast classes with a minimum number of people. Trainers must clean and disinfect equipment between users and minimise sharing of equipment.
