Tennis NZ Updates

Tennis NZ is monitoring all available news sources regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. As the situation changes we are making decisions regarding appropriate measures for tennis and will post updates on this page.

UPDATE: 23 JUNE 2021

For all tennis clubs, coaches, and venues in greater Wellington, here’s a reminder for keeping tennis safe at Level 2:

  • Display your contact tracing poster
  • Complete/update and display and communicate your safety plan to everyone at your venue
  • Display Safe Club at Level 2 and Safe Coaching at Level 2 posters at your venue
  • Remind everyone to sanitise their hands before and after playing
  • Minimise the sharing of equipment (e.g. only the coach should touch the equipment)
  • Groups/activities/events must be kept to less than 100 people, while maintaining 1m distance

KEEP SCROLLING for more information, and templates for safety plans and posters.  


We have just recently received some updated information from Sport New Zealand regarding coaching under Alert Level 3.  LEARN MORE


ALERT LEVEL GUIDE - Here you will find information relating to permitted tennis activity at EACH ALERT LEVEL.

Covid-19 safety plan based on Work Safe, MOH and Government guidelines, which may assist in a club’s decision making whether to open.  The safety plan is primarily for Alert Level 2/2.5 but recommended for Level 1 too. At Level 3, it is 'bubble play only'.  Tennis activity is not permitted at Level 4.  You should have a safety plan in place at your club and for your coaching business.

We have created a set of FAQs as a result of questions from coaches and club reps that have been received between May and August 2020.  Almost all of these questions relate to Alert Level 2 and above.  If you have a question that has not been answered, and that you can’t find guidance on please email

Ministry of Health NZ Covid Tracer QR code poster. Use R911288 for the LocationBIC code in the template spreadsheet. It is strongly recommended to display these posters at your club during all Alert Levels.  Coaching businesses MUST display a poster if the club is not.  This government contact tracing poster replaces all previous options, including the original Tennis NZ contact tracing tool developed in April/May 2020.
