Matthew Phillip started this petition to Welsh Government

I believe that following the relaxation of the covid-19 restrictions the government should allow local sports to resume. They have already allowed pubs and restaurants to reopen which poses a much higher risk in the spread of infection than taking part in local sports. I play field hockey, which in many ways, is a minority sport. Therefore, attracts only small crowds. Whereas local sports such as football and rugby attracts slightly larger crowds but not so much that games cannot go ahead. The current rule states that we can now train but without any contact, I feel that this is somewhat unfair considering that pubs and restauraunts are able to open. Although pubs and restaurants are keeping to the guidelines provided by the government the same cannot be said for many of their patrons. Hockey as well as a number of local sports is a game that is played in the open air which means the infection is not confined to a small area therefore reducing the risk. In addition to this, local sports can also be played with PPE such as masks to further reduce the risk of infection.
