COVID-19 FAQ

When can we start playing Club Badminton again?

We’re restarting Sundays from 31 May and Tuesdays from 9 June! The first 2 weeks will be a trial to confirm we can safely manage the club under the current Alert Level 2 guidance.

What are you doing to keep players safe?

The Auckland Badminton Association have implemented a number of measures to ensure the safety of players. These are documented on their website here – please read these documents before you come to club! The measures are captured here in English and here in Chinese.

In addition to these measures, Balmoral Badminton Cub will be doing the following:

  • Sunday morning sessions will be limited to 60 players
  • For the first 2 weeks sessions will be for members only, we will revisit this depending on how the sessions go

How about coaching and juniors?

Juniors will be restarting from Sunday 31 May. We’re still working on confirming when coaching will recommence and we’ll contact those who have registered when this is sorted.

Can we continue to play casually?

You can now make court bookings for a casual group of less than 10 players at the Gillies Ave hall via the ABA website. If you are a registered 2020 member you will be entitled to club court rates – if you’re a 2019 member and want to take advantage of the club member court pricing you’ll need to renew your membership – please contact us to discuss.

Note that use of the hall is subject to special terms and conditions for Alert Level 2 – please read this document before making a booking and/or entering the hall.

Do the club fees change?

We have decided to keep fees the same, but will extend the season at the end of the year. If in the event this year’s playing days are further curtailed, we will consider rolling over this year’s fees to cover some portion of next year’s.

Are any other events cancelled?

Badminton NZ has postponed all their tournaments and events until further notice.
