Club access under Covid Protection Framework (CPF) setting Red

Based on the Sport NZ guidelines for a facility like ours (an open gym, no onsite concierge to monitor member numbers in the building or bar area) the club has decided that it is in our collective interest to follow the Covid Vaccine Control (CVC) guidance and require a My Vaccine Pass (MVP) for all members over 12 years 3 months to access to the club. This allows us to open up the gym, and all interior areas with capacity limit of 100 people.

To validate MVP status we will be sighting and recording vaccination status to the membership database, so that you can then come and go and use the club as normal. For us, the most practical way to do this will be to link MVP status to your club swipe card. 

You can reactivate access by filling out this form. Note, updating swipe card records is a manual process so please allow up to one business day for activation.

If you have a family membership you may need to fill out the form multiple times to enter information for other family club members over 12 years 3 months.

If you don't have a pass already, you can sign up for one at If we haven't received validation of vaccine status your membership cards will be disabled. If you need help reactivating your card, please contact us, we will be on hand and committed to assisting you get back to the club. MVP status can also be sighted and recorded by a club staff member if one is on-site.

Mask wearing is not required when on squash courts or using the gym, but it is encouraged when not active/playing. While tennis court access for caoch-led activity via the side gate is still possible, we have phased out the temporary padlock code access and have reverted to swipe card access via the club building as the default method of entry. You must book all court usage via the court booking system listing all attendees

For clarity, recording your MVP status applies to all members over 12 years 3 months for squash, tennis, and the gym. Any non-member visitor must also record their MVP status prior to attending via either filling in the form or contacting the club administrator.
