Indoor Cricket New Zealand and Indoor Netball New Zealand
25 May 2020
Following the latest from the Government on 25 May 2020, Indoor Sports Centres are able to open for full regulation games at midday on 29 May 2020.
All centres have been working hard to get their centres to the standard of regulation required by the time they are available to open. The majority of centres will be ready to open between 29 May – 2 June. All centres have confirmed to ICNZ and INNZ that they will have all the necessary precautions in place as outlined by the Government.
Contact tracing is a huge part of the Government’s requirements and each centre will be requiring everyone to sign-in on arrival.
Under the current conditions outlined, centres will only be able have a maximum of 100 people in the centre at any one time, so please be aware that each centre will have their own policy around spectators being present.
Whilst we are excited that indoor sports will be able to resume, it is important as a community that we mitigate the risk of any potential second wave of COVID-19. Therefore, if you are not feeling well, please stay at home. While we are confident that we have done everything in our control in preparation for a return to the courts, we make no guarantees that there will not be a second wave, so each person needs to take full responsibility for themselves and their wellbeing.
As you are all aware, the centres and their owners have had a difficult time during this period, so your continued support of these centres is paramount. Your support to get indoor sports up and running again in New Zealand is much appreciated.
An update on the status of Super League and other tournaments to take place later this year will be provided in due course, as the logistics of these tournaments are currently being worked through.
Stay safe and well, and we hope to see you at one of our events this year.
