New Zealand’s Alert Levels are changing. As at 3pm Friday 4 September Auckland will be in Level 2.5, and the rest of New Zealand will remain in Level 2.

The Health & Safety of our participants, volunteers and staff is our number one priority, as we look at ways to introduce safety measures to tackle the spread of COVID-19.

The 2021 Downer New Zealand Masters Games will be following the NZEA Voluntary COVID-19 Code for Events through contact tracing and safety measures as required. We are committed to supporting the Ministry of Health and the Government stamp out COVID-19, and are currently working through a wider COVID Response Plan for the event as a whole.

In the unlikely event we have to cancel due to COVID-19,we will be offering our participants refunds, minus a $15 administration fee as per the event Terms and Conditions.
