We are pleased that Auckland is now back at Level 1.  Now we are back at Alert Level 1 our events can look a lot more "normal".  It is important that all those visiting the venue continue to take these simple steps to help protect yourself and others:

  • Keep track of where you have been - there are QR codes located at several places around the venue
  • Stay home if you are sick

We're thrilled to be up and running as "normal" again and we're looking forward to seeing you at the Woodhill Sands.
