Club activities will proceed this week

Following the change to alert level 2 - the club program will proceed with extra Covid precautions in place.  

Please stay at home if you are not feeling well.  Dispensation will be considered in this instance for Cup events - please apply to the committee in writing.

The committee is monitoring the situation and will follow Government Guidelines.

Rating Points

Dear Club Members

The club committee, on the recommendation of the Match and Grading committee, has made the decision that club members with 15 and more rating points will not be eligible to play in the Wednesday Centennial Cup and Kaitake Plate competitions. However, they can still play on unrestricted nights with those players with less than 15 rating points. In fact, we encourage higher ranked players to play with the “C” grade players on a Wednesday night to foster their development.


There has been a ground swell of support for the resurrection of the popular newsletter. Pam Livingston and I are prepared to collate a monthly newsletter but we will require contributions from club members to make it viable. If you are interested on a regular basis or the occasional contribution please let either Pam or I know by e-mail.


Congratulations to the following NP pairs who did well in the recent NP Summer Picnic tournament.
