PUTRAJAYA: More sporting and fitness activities will be allowed during the movement control order.

Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said among them were gym activities, golf, motorsports, badminton, table tennis and tennis.

He said the government has allowed for such activities to be carried out as they do not involve contact, and also to help the public remain active.

“For these sports, all activities must be scheduled and by appointment. No walk-ins are allowed to control the number of people in the facilities,” he said on Thursday (Feb 11).


The green light for these activities will take effect on Feb 12.

For tennis, badminton and table tennis, aside from basic SOP, equipment cannot be shared among players.

For activities in the gym, social distancing of between 1m and 3m for static activities must be observed, and between 3m and 5m for dynamic activities.

Other activities allowed are jogging, cycling, brisk walking and exercise limited to two people in neighbourhoods only.

Recreational fishing is also allowed. Training sessions for football, basketball, hockey and sepak takraw are also allowed but must be done without contact.
