COVID LOCKDOWN UPDATE 6 OCTOBER 2021
From Wednesday 6 October 2021 Auckland moves to Level 3, Step 1.
We've now received guidance from Tennis Northern and Squash Auckland regarding the impact for our club arising from the Covid Lockdown changes announced on Monday 4 October, applying from Wednesday 6 October 2021.
Disappointingly, the squash courts (and whole clubhouse) must remain closed at this level.
Tennis NZ has confirmed you can play tennis with another household bubble. All other guidelines with regards tracking, cleanliness protocols etc. stay in place.
Therefore, when you book your court on iSquash, you can invite another member into your booking, but PLEASE MAKE SURE you record all names of those playing in the notes area so we have 100% contact tracing compliance.
If you want to play with another household bubble later in the day, this is fine too - just make sure you record all details.
Tennis coaching can take place at the club under the following restricted requirements:
- A maximum of 6 people per court, plus the coach. These six people can be from 6 different household bubbles.
- A maximum of 4 people on the court playing at any one time, with the other 2 staying off the court while waiting to come on.
- 2 metre distancing applies at all times for everyone.
- All people being coached must scan our club’s QR code.
Contact Smash Tennis directly to arrange a lesson.
Tennis interclub is not possible under Level 3 Step 1.
Tennis Northern is reviewing what can take place when we move to Step 2 as the outdoor limits move to 25 people. This would provide options for interclub, but TN is seeking clarification around this and how practical it would be to implement.
COVID LOCKDOWN UPDATE 22 SEPTEMBER - Level 3
From Wednesday 22 September Auckland moves to level 3. Under the Sport NZ and Tennis NZ guidelines, we are able to open the club for limited use, provided we follow specific requirements for managing Covid.
The procedures for how the club will operate under Alert Level 3 have been updated and apply from Wednesday 22 September 2021 until further notice.
Please ensure you read the attached Safety Plan as it is vital to our club being able to open safely at Level 3.
The main points to note are:
EVERYTHING ELSE AT THE CLUB REMAINS CLOSED. i.e. the squash courts, lounges, bar, showers & toilets, deck and outside furniture, drinking fountains and kitchen are still closed at Level 3.
We will sanitise the handles on the two access gates on a daily basis.
Many thanks for your co-operation with these measures!
