Community Sport Back on the Table

SOME Portland sporting clubs are returning to activity this week after the easing of restrictions last week has allowed training and competition under strict protocols.

The restrictions allow for all outdoor junior training and sport to take place; however, no indoor sporting activity is allowed.

For adults, outdoor non-contact training has been given the go ahead, with only participants playing, training or personnel required to assist (coaches) can be present.

The new restrictions saw golf return to competition play over the weekend and social bowling to come back with competition planned for the coming week.

As well as bowls and golf, other clubs will return to trainings with the Portland Swimming Club, Portland District Kart Club and Portland Yacht Club ready to get back into their meets.

The Portland BMX Club is also developing a strategy to get back into training.

Group fitness classes have also been given the go ahead with classes of 10 allowed.

While other summer sports will also be looking to return in the coming months, some are restricted by the current guidelines with basketball still working on a plan for training and competition.
