  • All persons, regardless of vaccination status, can participate in an outdoor gathering, such as a barbeque or picnic.

While masks are no longer mandatory inside or outside the clubhouse, masks are still strongly encouraged when you cannot physically distance from others. Although COVID-19 Safe Check-ins are no longer required, we will still have the QR check-in signs around the clubhouse for people who wish to continue using the QR check-in system.

Be covid-smart

  • Do not attend training or games if you have tested positive for COVID
  • Do not attend training or games if you are required to self-isolate.
  • Do not attend training or games if you are sick or have any flu-like symptoms (e.g. fever, cough, runny nose, sore throat, headache, body aches and pains, etc)
  • We ask spectators and people on sidelines to maintain physical distancing (1.5m apart) while courtside.
  • Where possible, please maintain physical distancing at canteen, the BBQ area and in the clubhouse.
  • Wash or sanitise hands regularly
