Following recent updates from the government regarding Covid-19 alert level guidelines, a number of coaches have rightly been trying to understand exactly what this means for their coaching going forward. For the time being current guidelines remain (CLICK HERE). Tennis NZ has queries in to Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment (MBIE) and Sport NZ to get specific opinions on tennis for recreation as well as tennis coaching at Level 3.
We will be sure to update the current guidelines when we receive clarity from these organisations. Based on the available information we currently have, we know that many clubs and facilities cannot guarantee the health and safety of players using shared facilities, particularly if those clubs and centres are unmanned.
Concurrently, Tennis NZ are working on a contact tracing tool which will be made available to all clubs and facilities when they are able to reopen.
We hope that you and your families are staying safe in your bubbles and we will be in touch with you all again soon.
