With government guidance now to hand, and confirmation that Auckland will start at the red traffic light on Thursday at 11.59pm, the committee have now been able to finalise our re-opening rules. Feedback from members has been fully in support of all members holding vaccine passes (CVC's) as evidence of either vaccination or exemption and we will be requiring evidence of CVC passes as a requirement for continued membership under current alert levels for those over 12 years and 3 months old. We would be happy to further suspend memberships in individual cases should your circumstances dictate, no questions asked.

Our approach will be to suspend all memberships in i squash and then reinstate them as passes are either presented in person or e-mailed in response to this e-mail. To get ahead we will host the following 3 sessions at the club this week where you can provide your vaccine pass for membership reinstatement;

  • Tues 30th Nov 5-7pm
  • Weds 1st Dec 6-7pm
  • Thurs 2nd Dec 7-9pm

Beyond these sessions we will have a club get-together this Friday night from 6pm in lieu of club night at which CVC's can also be validated and ongoing Weds and Thurs club nights from 7pm will provide further opportunity.

Please note that casual bookings will not be permitted under our current policy and we ask that you not bring visitors to the club unless aged 12 years and under.

Mask wearing except when playing squash is encouraged and we ask that you demonstrate respect for others around you when in company at the club.

The Re-opening conditions follow and for further guidance and explanation of the committee rationale please refer to the following documents on our website;

  • Detailed COVID policy - here
  • Risk assessment for a club player - here

Further health protocols will be with you ahead of the reopening but I think that's enough content for now and will leave you with the reopening conditions to digest. Please revert if anything is unclear or if you are inclined to consider membership to be sure of getting on court.

Shepherds Park Squash Club – COVID-19 Re-opening Conditions  - 3 DEC 2021
This policy has been formulated by the Shepherds Park Squash Club committee following release of the COVID Protection Framework by the NZ government. It encompasses all areas of the Shepherds Park Squash Club premises and is applicable to members, members guests, independent contractors, visiting players from other Clubs and other visitors aged over 12 years and 3 months. Entry by these individuals will be conditional on:
  1. Verification of your vaccination status via My Vaccine Pass with the NZ Verifier App, either electronic or paper copy.
  2. Agreeing to the club keeping details of the pass on either the relevant Members’ profile in i-squash, or other non-member record as appropriate. Please note that no personal information will be stored aside from the validity and expiry date of the vaccine Pass.
 All memberships will be suspended in I Squash until evidence of a vaccine pass is provided. No pay to play bookings will be permitted until traffic light levels permit and the committee are able to manage this option within the above parameters. The safety of our membership is our key concern and, as Shepherds Park Squash Club does not have any on site staff, ad hoc verification of vaccine Passes is not possible.

Given the evolving nature of COVID-19 and the Governments’ responses and policies towards managing the pandemic the committee will keep this policy under review and update it as required.

This policy comes into effect on 30 November 2021

I certify that the above Policy was approved by the Shepherds Park Squash Club Committee at a meeting held on 28th November 2021. The full policy, risk assessment and FAQ’s are available via the club website.

Best regards
