To our Squash Clubs,
We acknowledge that the Government measures recently put in place to stop the spread of COVID-19 will be having an adverse impact on all squash clubs. The main priority for Squash New Zealand and the 11 districts is to ensure that clubs are fully supported during this period of uncertainty. As a primary action to help all clubs focus on their core business, the option to defer payment of national and district affiliation fees will be made available.
Clubs that require this facility need to contact their district directly regarding district affiliation fees, or Squash NZ regarding national affiliation fees.
Districts will be working with clubs on a case by case basis to ensure their ongoing viability and, once the full impact of the lock down is ascertained, further consideration will be given to financial relief.
Sport Waikato's recommendation is, that for the sake of our physical, mental, social and spiritual health, the community needs to continue to remain active but needs to do so in a socially responsible way - minimise group gatherings where you possibly can. Here are some practical tips to implement to help you stay healthy while you continue to enjoy your squash -
Before the game
play Squash, be Smart and stay Safe
