Our priority is the health and wellbeing of our members, guests, staff and suppliers and to ensure the Club is compliant with the NSW Health Orders and ensure a COVID- Safe environment, entry to our Club will be regulated with a mandated entry assessment.

This assessment and conditions of entry for all members, guests, staff and contractors will be:
Conditions include but are not limited to:

The Heath Orders of the NSW Government have identified the conditions that the Club must comply and permitted to trade under and we can assure you we will be working hard to exceed these expectations by implementing procedures to ensure the health and safety of all members and guests as a priority.

All staff have undertaken WHS and Covid-19+ Risk Minimisation Training prior to the re-opening and the Club has undergone a viral sanitation clean.

The Club in the interim will open at 11am each day.

The Board, Management and Staff will ensure complete compliance and not compromise the Club, members, guests and staff. Your co-operation and understanding is appreciated and we apologise in advance should the mandatory restrictions not allow you to enter the Club.

Finally, we encourage all our Members to download the Government’s COVIDSafe app to continue to keep, not only our most vulnerable members but the whole community safe.

On behalf of the Board of Directors, Management and Staff we are thinking of and support you all to follow the physical distancing guidelines and keep safe.
