Hi everyone -

The courts will be open tomorrow between 10 am and 1 pm.  We have to enforce very strict guidelines in order to do this, and Mat has kindly agreed to be at the courts from 10 am until 1 pm tomorrow.   These guidelines are from Tennis New Zealand and must be strictly adhered to.  So if you are keen to have a hit (within your bubble of course!) please contact Mat to book a time on the number below.  Court booking times are 10 am, 11 am, and 12 noon.  Please take time to read the conditions surrounding being able to play.  The ball machine cannot be accessed.  Enjoy!

All members wishing to play MUST book through Mat McCutcheon (0273261816) MEMBERS CAN ONLY PLAY WITH THOSE IN THEIR BUBBLE.

 

The club is not open to non-members.

 

Members are required to play in their bubbles and in addition, there are strict requirements primarily around social distancing, contact tracing, and hygiene standards.

 

Additional club rules that must be complied with during AL3:

Only courts 1, 3, 5 are scheduled for play.

 

A member of the committee or club representative will be at the club to open and close the courts.

 

Bookings will be restricted to one hour. At the 55-minute mark, members using the court are expected to vacate so there is no cross over.

 

Please cancel your bookings 24 hours in advance if you do not intend to play.

 

Access will be via the gates and the gates are to remain open. QR must be used this will located up to court.

 

Do not touch the entrance gates, nets, or any other club equipment whilst at the club. All seats are unavailable and not to be touched. The scoreboards are not to be used.

 

Members must bring their own equipment and there is a limit of 4 balls per court. You must take away all items you came with, including any rubbish.

 

Children must be supervised by an adult.

 

There are to be no additional spectators (even if they are in your bubble) and no pets are allowed on club grounds.

 

The clubhouse, bathrooms, and drink fountains will be unavailable during AL3.

 

Players must maintain a minimum distance of 2m between themselves and those not in their bubble. If a ball comes onto your court from another court, do not pick it up, kick it back.

 

Additional Tennis NZ COVID-19 Play Safe Guidelines must also be followed.

 

The committee understands these measures are restrictive and are unfortunately not at all what we are used to. They are very necessary to ensure the safety of all, and hopefully will ensure things return to normal sooner rather than later. There will be an ongoing review of the procedures and guidelines. In making the decision to open the committee acknowledges that there is a degree of trust involved. Please ADHERE TO THE RULES and DO NOT apply a loose interpretation of your bubble.
