In view of the ban on amateur and popular sports in November, the municipal sports facilities and halls in Bavaria are to be kept open at least for schools. The Bavarian State Sports Association (BLSV) calls for this in a message on Friday. To combat the corona pandemic, training and competitions below the professional level are no longer possible in the Free State as in all of Germany from Monday to the end of November. The schools remain open and thus school sports are allowed for the children.
That welcomes the BLSV. “It is now all the more important that the municipalities in Bavaria also keep sports facilities and sports halls open for school sports. Since no club sports are allowed to take place, these serve the very important school sport, ”said the message.
The association takes care of the youngsters in the sports clubs. During the first lockdown in the spring, the number of members in the sports clubs in the children and youth sector fell by five percent. The BLSV called this a "worrying development".
