Level 3 – Step 1

Ultimately, for tennis in the Auckland region the main points of difference from today are:

  • 2 households and up to 10 people can meet to play together outside only.
  • Professional coaches can return to work and deliver lessons outside only. Lessons can take place with a maximum of 10 people. This includes the coach. Players do not have to be in the same household to participate, and everyone should stay 2 metres apart.
    If players cannot be kept 2m apart then group numbers should be reduced accordingly.
  • Face coverings are encouraged whilst not playing or having a lesson

Level 3

With the change from level 4 down to level 3 it gives us the ability to open the tennis courts to current members to play.

Tennis court use is only available to Cockle Bay Tennis and Howick Squash Club Members to play in within their own household bubble.

Please take the time to read through the guidelines. Not adhering to these criteria will be to the detriment of all members at our facility.

Be courteous, respectful and considerate when making bookings and playing tennis as the combined tennis and squash memberships equates to a lot of people who now have access to the tennis court booking system.
