The Play by the Rules Post COVID-19 Community Sports Think Tank Forums are live streamed events that address some of the important issues facing community sport in a post COVID-19 world. The purpose is to provide community sport with food for thought around what the recovery might look like - will it be the same or will it be different? Do we now have an opportunity to reimagine community sport in a response to changing conditions in the community.

    In the present era, the close interaction between the media and sport are indispensable. The two feed one another with sport providing a wide range of content for the media every day, while media provides publicity and a connection to the population for sport. The media has an undeniable role in developing awareness around sport and awakening public consciousness, achieved by spreading novel ideas and displaying leadership and guidance to our society.
