Local sport is set to return

Community sport, like touch football, has been given the green light to recommence in NSW. Pictured above are last season’s senior touch football competition winners, the Mighty Red Roosters.

With NSW hitting the 80 per cent vac-cination rate this week, it paves the way for community sport to recommence.
As per the new rules around exercise and recreation, community sports are permitted in compliance with the Public Health Oder and gathering limits.
Sport can be resumed for fully vaccinated staff, spectators and participants aged 16 years and over. (Children under 15 are not required to be accompanied by an adult. All adults who attend sporting competitions however need to be fully vaccinated.)
Outdoor sports will have a maximum limit of 200 people.
The Cobar Swimming Club and Cobar Jun-ior Touch competition organisers both an-nounced on Monday they are ready to go.
Cobar Swimming club will commence their pointscore swims next Wednesday while the new junior touch competition will kick off next Thursday night at Ward Oval.
The Cobar & District Cricket Club is plan-ning to commence their 2021/2022 season by the end of the month while the Cobar Little A’s Club, who had planned to start their sea-son more than a month ago, are currently mak-ing plans to restart their season.
