Covid-19 Advice

Advice from Tennis NZ about practicing good hygiene is attached.  If you're not feeling well, please rest and get better at home, your team mates will get by without you. 

The key change on court is the introduction of the 'Racket bump'.  It's a wonderful part of sport that we acknowledge our opponent/s on court, please do this by bumping rackets rather than shaking hands.  We did this at interclub on Saturday and Junior champs on Sunday, it takes a moment to remember but everyone soon gets used to it. 

Covid19 Advice from Tennis NZ
