NI Sport Returns to Limited Action


Golf, tennis and a number of other sports will return to activity in Northern Ireland today as the Stormont Assembly path to reopening mirrors Dublin closer than London.

Activities involving people not from the same household, outdoors and in a socially distant manner have now been authorised, giving the green light for sporting activity.

The reaction across the board in the Republic has been very positive and Sport for Business will host a live session with a group of the sporting CEOs responsible for that this Thursday morning, May 21st. Reserve a place.

Gaelic Games, Rugby, Cricket, Hockey, Golf, Tennis, Basketball and Gymnastics are among the many sports that are governed on an island of Ireland basis and getting greater alignment between the two jurisdictions is seen as being a crucial factor in many of their plans for a return to action.

Sport Ireland and Sport NI have been keeping in close contact throughout the pandemic as well, while the Northern Ireland Sports Forum, a member of Sport for Business has been valuable in keeping people up to date on how things have been progressing.

Northern Ireland has also allowed drive-in facilities for church services, cinemas and theatres.
