The 2021-22 Tournament Guidelines require the entire country to be in Covid-19 Alert Level 1 at least 3 weeks prior to the start of the Men’s and Women’s Championship.
Unfortunately, due to most of the country remaining in Covid-19 Alert Level 2, and parts of the North Island remaining in Covid-19 Alert Level 3, the Men’s and Women’s Championships have been cancelled.
Individuals who have entered are entitled to a refund as set out in the 2021-22 Tournament Guidelines which can be found here.
While this will understandably be disappointing for those who were excited to play in these Championships, the safety of all participants is paramount.
Croquet New Zealand is currently reviewing our options for the NZ Open, scheduled to be played in early December. An announcement on this event will be made by early next week.
