Tennis NZ is monitoring all available news sources regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. As the situation changes daily we are making decisions regarding appropriate measures for tennis and will post updates on this page.
All updates listed below are current as of 27 April 2020.
UPDATE: 27 April 2020 - Pleased to see that playing tennis within your bubble is permitted under Level 3.
- Clubs choosing to open must be confident and comfortable that they can follow the health and safety measures recommended by the Government
- Tennis NZ have created a Club Toolkit ready for clubs to use from Tuesday 28 April. This includes:
- Unfortunately coaching will not be permitted at Level 3, unless the coach and player are already within the same bubble.
- Read on HERE for Sport NZ's guidelines for "Play, active recreation and sport at Alert Levels 4&3"
- The Tennis Alert Level recommendations for Alert Level 3 have been revised.
UPDATE: 9 April 2020: Tennis NZ, affiliated Regions and key Facility Managers have worked over the past week to put ‘Tennis Activity Alert Levels’ together. We realise this is such an unusual time for everyone, and we are keen for clubs and coaches to get back on court as soon as it is safe and responsible to do so. Like you, we are monitoring Government announcements closely and as we move back down through the Alert Levels, if there is more flexibility for public venues and playgrounds at Level 3, we shall update these guidelines to reflect that for tennis too.
UPDATE: 25 March 2020
For the time being, no results will be counted/recorded in Match Hub (back dated to 20th March 2020) and there will be no monthly rankings updates until further notice.
UPDATE: 23 March 2020
