Update from Badminton NH: "With the governments latest announcement about Auckland moving into it’s own version of Level 2, our courts will be opening to individual court bookings, however we are not yet allowed to have clubs and groups playing. Unfortunately, this includes the school competitions which cannot begin until we are allowed to increase the numbers in our venue.
So for next week, beginning Monday 31 August, there will be no play for schools. We are hoping that we will be allowed to continue the schools badminton league from Monday 7 September, however that decision cannot be made until we hear the next directive. I will keep you updated as soon as we have a decision."
