COVID-19 restrictions to ease but compliance must increase

A number of COVID-19 restrictions across NSW will be eased as the state continues to move forward in a COVID-Safe way.

From 12:01am Monday 29 March, the following will apply:

  • no caps on weddings and funerals
  • no restrictions on singing including in places of worship
  • no restriction on dancing including at weddings and in pubs and nightclubs
  • no cap on visitors in the home (if there are more than 100 people there must be a COVID-19 Safety plan and electronic recording of visitor details)
  • 200 people allowed for personal outdoor public gatherings
  • all venues to move to the one person per 2sqm rule (venues will be allowed at least 25 people before the 2sqm rule applies)
  • 100% seated capacity at entertainment venues including stadiums and theatres
  • mask use including on public transport will move from ‘mandatory’ to ‘strongly recommended’.

Businesses and other organisations must continue to ensure they keep accurate records of all attendances, including through QR Codes, to enable fast contact tracing in the event of any community transmission.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian said the easing of restrictions is a significant step forward as NSW continues its COVID-19 recovery.

“With no community transmission and our quarantine and frontline workers now receiving their second vaccinations, the timing is right to further ease restrictions across the state,” Ms Berejiklian said.

“As we do this, it is important we don’t let our guard down and continue to check in at venues, keep our social distance and get tested if we have even the mildest of symptoms.”

Treasurer Dominic Perrottet said the further lifting of restrictions would help support businesses and jobs across the state.

“Today we take a another big stride in the right direction, easing restrictions is important in helping businesses return to normal, it’s like a jab of confidence for the economy,” Mr Perrottet said.

Health Minister Brad Hazzard said the further easing of restrictions was possible due to the support and sacrifices of the people of NSW.

“The initial focus of our vaccination program on frontline quarantine, border and healthcare workers has also given us greater confidence as it reduces the risk of COVID being introduced into the community from an overseas source,” Mr Hazzard said.

Dr Chant said it is critical everyone continues to practise COVID-safe behaviours, including using QR codes, staying home if unwell and getting tested.

“I also urge everyone to get vaccinated as soon as they are eligible and able to do so. It will not only protect you, your family and loved ones, but will keep the whole community safe,” Dr Chant said.

2021 Sydney Badge Competition FINAL Grading

Dear Delegates 

Thank you all for submitting your teams into the Sydney Badge Competition in 2021.

Please find attached the Final Grading for the 2021 season.

We have already heard from a lot of you in regards to draw requests. This is a reminder for those who we have not heard from to please send through requests ASAP as the draw process will begin next week.

Kind Regards,
Tennis NSW Competitions

2021 Sydney Badge Competition Gradings Confirmed

No changes to any of our gradings have been made.  A few challenges were upheld.

The grades look very strong this year.  A few men’s teams have dropped 2 grades and lots of men’s teams have been dropped a grade in Division 2 and 3.  Several teams that won their grade were also not promoted because of the depth of men’s teams this year. In summary it will be very hard to win any division this year.

Serving of food and drinks is no longer required so it is up to each team to decide.  As long as COVID rules are followed I think most teams will supply food and drinks.

All clubs now MUST have alternate courts available in case of rain.  Grass court clubs including Hunters Hill and Marrickville can be forfeited if they don’t arrange alternative courts.  Please keep any text messages between Captains in case you need them for evidence of not finding alternative courts.

Remember if you wish to book a court for practice on Saturdays before 1pm or after 4pm let me know.

Good luck to all teams and any questions anytime I am here to help
