Background on where our Covid-19 Policy comes from:

Following changes to the national covid guidelines, Sport New Zealand meets with the Covid-19 Group at the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet (the government department responsible Covid-19 communication and public engagement) to interpret the updates for national sports organisations.  Sport New Zealand then provides all it’s national sport organisations (NSOs) with general sport-related information which is also posted on its website and linked to on the official government covid website.  All national organisations then produce advice tailored to their sport, for us this information comes from Tennis New Zealand.  NSOs often have to go back to Sport NZ and through them to the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet to check details.  Birkenhead Tennis Club’s committee then meets to discuss the advice from Tennis New Zealand, looks at the practicalities of implementing it, and often also adds additional specifications to further mitigate risk.
