Tasmanian indoor sport associations say restrictions on their activities are highly inconsistent and are hindering their return to action.
Forty people have been allowed to gather in hotels and restaurants since Friday, but large sporting facilities can still only have 20 people at a time, limiting the number of competitions that can resume.
Basketball Tasmania chief executive Chris McCoy said he was "astounded" that the government changed its mind at the 11th hour on Friday.
"The reality of this 'backflip' is that it will cripple our sports plans to resume training programs and cripple our sports plans for the next stage of resumption as we cannot move straight into competition without training," Mr McCoy said.
Gymnastics Tasmania chief executive Bradley Low said gymnastics was a non-contact sport and lessons were highly supervised.
Netball Tasmania chief executive Aaron Pidgeon believes the restrictions are inconsistent and should be reviewed.
"If this restriction is not revised, it stands to not only have a significant impact on the physical and mental wellbeing of our participants, but to have both an immediate and long term impact on participation numbers for netball in Tasmania," he said.
Labor's sport spokesperson David O'Byrne said the government had moved the goal posts at the last minute creating chaos for many team sports.
"This is not just an oversight, this is unacceptable. We want these sports treated equally," Mr O'Byrne said.
"We know we have to be safe coming out of the COVID-19 restrictions but this is over the top, it's unfair and is going to impact significantly on these sports."
Mr O'Byrne said it was "nonsensical" that the four-metre rule was good enough for restaurants, pubs and retailers, but not for basketball and netball courts, and gymnastics facilities.
Sports Minister Jane Howlett indicated the restrictions on indoor sport gatherings would be reviewed.
"Public Health and the Department of Communities, Sport and Recreation will consider how the current public health guideline can be safely applied in larger indoor sport facilities to ensure that risk of COVID-19 transmission is minimised," Ms Howlett said.
"However, the public health guideline is cautious in order to protect participants, given the higher risk posed by the recommencement of indoor sport."
