COVID-19 | Wellington School of Cricket update


Following the announcement made by the Prime Minister last night, Wellington will move to Alert Level 2 from midday today through to midnight on Friday. The Wellington School of Cricket facilities will remain open, however there will be some changes to the way that we operate until we move back to Alert Level 1.

Our changes remain the same as when we have been in Level 2 previously, and are in line with advice provided by New Zealand Cricket and Sport New Zealand. Please take some time to read through the COVID-19 changes to WSC, along with New Zealand Cricket’s COVID-19 Indoor Facility Recommendations before making any bookings.



Throughout Level 1 WSC has had compulsory contact tracing in place and this shift to Level 2 is a reminder of the importance of contact tracing. We would appreciate the support of all members and coaches to comply with contact tracing to ensure the safety of all users. We will be enforcing contact tracing, and any member or WSC user who fails to comply with these contact tracing guidelines will receive one warning, and then face a ban from all WSC facilities. If a WSC member is banned, their membership will be put on hold until their ban has finished.

When booking a net, Book-a-Net will require the user to input details of all attendees. In addition to this, when entering and exiting the facility, every individual will be required to scan a QR code. Today we have introduced additional QR codes which can be scanned with the Government’s COVID-19 app at each facility, and our current Rippl codes will also remain on all doors. Please ensure you scan one of these posters when entering the facility – you do not need to scan both of them.



Please note Cricket Wellington will be monitoring the facilities, and failure to comply with these changes may result in memberships being suspended, cancelled or the hirer being banned from the use of the facility.

  • Lane space will be limited due to social distancing requirements and guidelines set by New Zealand Cricket. There is only to be a maximum of 4 individuals per booking, including coaches, parents and siblings spectating.
  • The bowling machines will not be available for use by WSC members, coaches or the public.
  • There is to be only one ball per person used at each training.
  • Hand sanitiser will be located around the facilities. Please use this upon entrance, after bowling and batting, and upon leaving the facility
  • WSC Kitchens and water fountains will not be in use.
