Golf and tennis will be among the first sports to resume as the Stormont Executive has revealed its five step plan to return to action after the coronavirus shutdown.
The document details steps for a variety of sectors, from work and education through to travel and sport.
However, the steps are as yet not date specific and each step may be hit at different times for each sector.
First Minister Arlene Foster told the Assembly she is hopeful that Step Five can be reached by December.
The plan states that any relaxation "will be led by science and not the calendar".
Factors affecting the removal of restrictions include the latest scientific and medical advice, the level of transmission and the impact of any implications as a result of easing the lockdown.
The current position for sport is that exercise is permitted with members of the same household and that will only change once step one is reached, whenever that may be.
Here are the details of the five steps in the 'Sport, cultural and leisure activities' sector, with no dates provided:
Outdoor spaces and public sporting amenities will reopen, in order to facilitate the playing of sports in which social distancing can be observed between members of different households and there is also no shared contact with hard surfaces.
That includes the likes of golf, tennis, running, walking, cycling and some water sports.
During the second step, small groups of people from different households can gather for non-contact training. Outdoor activities can include less than 10 people and, where social distancing is difficult to maintain, can involve brief contacts of less than 10 minutes. Indoor activities should last no more than 10 minutes and include no more than four people.
Indoor groups can now include larger numbers of people but must still maintain social distancing. Outdoor training groups can include up to 30 people with, again, brief contacts of less than 10 minutes where social distancing is difficult to maintain.
Competitive sport can return in step four but with, at most, limited numbers of spectators.
Leisure centres and other indoor facilities can also reopen. Larger indoor groups can now have contacts lasting longer than 10 minutes 'if effective mitigation is possible'.
'Close physical contact sports' can return in step five, along with the full use of facilities for competitive sports.
