Due to major construction works, covid protection framework and council requirements and conditions the centre was significantly restricted for number of people in the facility and the number of vehicles allowed to park in and around the facility. However we have survived through with barcode and various system during this time.
Since Govt has officially removed all covid protection network and our major construction has successfully passed the major works we are now making changes to remove all possible restrictions on court bookings and facility usage.
These changes are also in preparation to start operating all 22 badminton courts and the Table tennis courts etc early next year.
These changes will be effective from 1st Nov 2022
1. Price Review:
The cost of operating facility has significantly increased and also forced us to recover significant loss incurred during covid full lock down time. However overall cost to members will be same or even lower in view of the change of policy.
Card holder court rates:
Peak time: $20/hr ( This is $5 lower than the similar facility in Auckland)
Off peak time: $12/hr (No Change)
At present most groups have been paying 20+/hr including visitor fee and player registrations etc
Casual/Walk-In court Rates: No change.
