Returning to play

COVID-19 restrictions are continuing to ease with Stage 3 of the Roadmap to easing Queensland’s restrictions now in effect.

Stage 3 brings the Queensland sport, recreation and fitness industry another step closer to a return to play as we knew it, but what does it mean for organisations?

Adhering to the government’s Return to Play industry plans, organisations are permitted to:

  • resume activity with competition and physical contact allowed on the field of play
  • open indoor sports facilities with one person per 2 square metres for venues that are 200 square metres or less (up to a total of 50) and 1 person per 4 square metres for venues larger than 200 square metres
  • open outdoor sports facilities with physical distancing required off the field of play
  • open change rooms, gym crèche’s and canteens, run carnivals, events and gala days.

However, all clubs and organisations need to be vigilant with their hygiene, sanitisation, social distancing and record keeping to ensure participants and the Queensland community stay safe and healthy.

New FairPlay round now open

Do you have a child who is ready to return to play after COVID-19?

To support the COVID-safe restart of sport and recreation in Queensland, the latest round of FairPlay is now open.

Eligible families with children aged 5 to 17 years can apply for a voucher valued up to $150 to use for sport and active recreation membership, registration or participation fees.

Don’t forget, if you have a Round 2 FairPlay voucher, the expiry dates have been extended until Wednesday 11 November 2020 in line with the closure of this current round, giving parents more time to present to activity providers.

Vouchers can be used with registered activity providers listed on the FairPlay website—there are over 4,500 providers to choose from.

Applications open for Active Restart Infrastructure Recovery Fund

Does your local club need help to recover from the impact of COVID-19?

Whether it’s marquees for a fundraising event, white goods for the canteen, or a fresh coat of paint for the clubhouse—the Queensland Government is supporting up to 3,000 clubs with funding to improve their facilities and purchase relevant equipment to encourage Queenslanders to return to play.

The Active Restart Infrastructure Recovery Fund provides funding of up to $20,000 per organisation for minor upgrades, repairs and maintenance works and equipment to help re-engage Queenslanders in physical activity.
