Football fields deserted by players, empty tennis courts and locker rooms plunged into silence. With the reconfinement, amateur sport sinks a little more into crisis. To express their distress, neighborhood sports associations are issuing the alert. In a column published in The team Saturday, November 21, 80 sports players and local elected officials are mobilizing.

While waiting for the announcements from the government, amateur sportsmen must be satisfied with courses by interposed screens. The clubs could reopen in December, but only for children.
