  • Post category:News

On Friday 18 December, the Board of Tennis Auckland Region Inc. confirmed the COVID-19 Vaccine Policies for the organisation as a whole and for the 2022 Interclub competitions.

 

The policies are summarised below:

 

Organisation

  • All staff, members, stakeholders and participants are strongly encouraged to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and to have secured their My Vaccine Pass
  • All staff (permanent and contracted) and volunteers within the Coaching & Performance and the Domestic Tournaments (excluding Groundsperson/Caretaker) teams are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and to have secured their My Vaccine Pass
  • As a condition of entry to the TA workplaces, gatherings and events, anyone aged 12 years & 3 months and over that enters TA workplaces, gatherings or events must agree to provide, hardcopy or electronic evidence of their COVID-19 Vaccination Certificate (My Vaccine Pass) to a TA or venue representative for verification, if requested – a valid My Vaccine Pass is mandated for entry to the TA offices within the Next Generation Club

 

TA Tennis Centres

  • A hardcopy or electronic evidence of a COVID-19 Vaccination Certificate (My Vaccine Pass) is not required as a condition of entry to the outdoor court facilities at the following TA Tennis Centres (Scarbro Tennis Centre, Nicholson Park and Manukau Tennis, Sports & Community Centre) and the indoor dome court facilities at the Manukau Tennis, Sports and Community Centre
  • As a condition of entry to the indoor facilities at the TA Scarbro Tennis Centre, anyone aged 12 years & 3 months and over that enters must agree to provide, hardcopy or electronic evidence of their COVID-19 Vaccination Certificate (My Vaccine Pass) to a TA or venue representative for verification, when requested – a valid My Vaccine Pass is mandated for entry to the indoor facilities at the TA Scarbro Tennis Centre

 

TA Tournaments

  • TA reserves the right to mandate the use of the My Vaccine Pass as a condition of entry for any official TA gathering or event held at any TA owned, leased, rented or operated venue or facility

 

Interclub Competitions

  • As a condition of entry to TA Interclub competitions in the 2021-2022 season, a valid My Vaccine Pass is mandated for all players. Players under the age of 12 years and 3 months and those who have a vaccine exemption will not require a My Vaccine Pass to play in the competitions. These competitions include Senior, Midweek Ladies, Junior and Twilight competitions.

 

All My Vaccine Pass mandates apply only under the Red and Orange settings of the NZ COVID-19 Protection Framework.

 

These policies are impacted and guided by many internal and external influences, including:

 

  • An organisational commitment to do all we can to keep our staff, stakeholders and participants safe
  • Staff (both permanent and contracted) and volunteers who will have extensive interaction with people who are likely to be unvaccinated, e.g. athletes and participants under 12 years old
  • Government and Sport New Zealand mandates for indoor sports facilities opening at the Red and Orange settings of the NZ COVID-19 Protection Framework snz-cpf-one-pager-3_6-1-_2.pdf (sportnz.org.nz)
