Newsletter 29/4/20

Dear Members

I hope this latest newsletter finds you all well as we have moved from level 4 into level 3. Our committee has reviewed the guidelines from Tennis NZ for safe play at this level and in doing so we appreciate that very specific processes must be in place for us to proceed. These include in brief  :

Cleaning & Hygiene : we

  • have ensured all high contact areas ( gates etc ) are sanitised before each use
  • have hand sanitiser available for court users before and after play
  • ensure our clubrooms (including disabled toilet) and drinking fountain remain closed

Administration : we

  • have a club representative to supervise – this person to open and close gates and carry out suitable cleaning procedures for high touch areas
  • have established a contactless booking process for court usage
  • have implemented a contact tracing process

Signage: we

  • have displayed a safety plan clearly for court users to view
  • have displayed contact tracing information posters ensuring this information has been given before any play takes place
  • have displayed signs advising court users that everything they brought to the club must be removed when they leave, including rubbish

We have decided in order for our committee to ensure the health and well being of our membership and to comply to the COVID – 19 Safety Plan, we need time to put these procedures in place therefore our club will remain closed during level 3. It is anticipated that all clubs in the future will continue to follow such procedures for some time and therefore we can be fully ready for the next level.

We appreciate while we will have disappointed members, we hope that when we do get back together it will be a wonderful celebration.
