Hey everyone,

Danny here checking in again… What a very long 7 days its been! FML – Although the 7 day lock down has turn into 3 months, our mission is still the same. We still intend to provide sport to each and every one of you and honour all registrations by resuming play as soon as we are cleared by State and Federal government.

All of our leagues have been paused not cancelled. As soon as we get the green light from the guys and gals in power we will deliver our leagues safely and promtply.

You can find the state and federal gov public order guidlines here.

All seasons that were paused will resume once safe to do so. Any registrations made for a season yet to start will simply be delayed until safe to launch. Bottom line all leagues will be back up and running as soon as safe to do so.

In the mean time… do ya like trivia?… We have a engineered a great evening of fun and facts with our main man BananaRaja at the helm. LOCKED UP TRIVIA **sang in the voice of Akon** You can play in teams or individually, there are spot prizes delivered to you door, theres beers, wines, singing, dancing and heaps more! Sounds good? Register / More Info HERE

As soon as the the situation changes, so will this blog. Any significant updates will be taken into consideration and the blog will be amended.

Stay cool

Danny

UPDATED 28/06

Residential lockdown pertaining to the entire Greater Sydney area has meant we have had no choice but to postpone leagues for the duration of the lock down period.

We expect and hope that we will be returning to play on Sunday 11th July onwards. All games during this period will be rescheduled.

This blog will be updated with and restrictions or added proctection we put in place to keeo everyone safe as the situation develops. 

Thank you for your ongoing support, lets hope this 2 weeks is a enough of a circuit breaker and we can get back out there.

Thanks

Danny


UPDATED 25/06

Hey Guys, Me again.

As you will all undoubtedly be aware a large group of Sydney Suburbs and Municipalities have been placed into lockdown as of 12am, Midnight tonight 25/06/21. 

We understand that those suburbs make up a huge number of our member base and see it as only fair we suspend all leagues not just the leagues in affected areas. 

This current lockdown is set for 7 days, so in accordance with this we will be suspending all leagues during this period.

At the end of this period we will review the situation.

Please note that this is a postponment not a cancellation. All games will be rescheduled.

Fingers crossed we speed through this week and get back to breathing fresh air and havung fun.

Have the best week you can,

Til next time

Danny


Updated 23/06

As in stands in light of the latest government restrictions, all leagues are still safe to go ahead.

We are deemed a “controlled outdoor gathering” – This means we must comply with our original covidsafe plan and the 2sqm rule, to put into persepcting the 2sqm rule 130 people would be allowed on a tennis court.

As always we continue to monitor the situation closely and will always keep you all updated if anything changes.

You DO NOT have to wear a mask if you do not want to. It is completely your choice, NSW Community sport has not been restricted any further than the previous update.

We comply with the current covid safe government plan, and therefore constitute a "controlled outdoor gathering" which is restricted to 1 person per 2 square meter rule, or a maximum of 5000 people. (a tennis court is 260 square meters).

We will continue to defer default fees if any member/team does not wish to play. Please just let us know with as much notice as possible.

You can find NSW Gathering Restrictions HERE.

Thanks

Danny


Hey Everyone,

Due to the small spike in covid cases seen in the recent days/week we just wanted to take a quick moment to explain our stance and response to the situation.

Firstly we would like it to be noted that we are constantly monitoring the situation and take all of our directive from the state & federal government and health agencies. This is a fluid issue that we are being reactive with.

We will endeavor to diligently adhere to our Covid Clean Policy at all of our leagues – you can view the Covid Policy Here.

In addition to the above please know that we respect each members choice as to whether or not to take part in their game, during this period of uncertainty we will not be issuing any default fees but we do ask that if you or your team are not planning on playing that you give us as much notice as possible so we can facilitate another game for your opposition.

If the situation changes, so will our response. 

Take care

Danny
