2020 Open Grade Team Registrations

We have created a Google form to register your club teams. Please follow the link for 2020 Open Grade Team registration -

2020 Open Grade Players Registrations

A simple MS Excel format has been created to capture details of registering players of your club for 2020 season. Format is attached here for your reference. First row is filled as an example – please use the same format to maintain consistency. We will need the filled spreadsheet back by first week of April.

2020 Open Grade Players transfer

Another Google form has been created to facilitate clubs or associations to transfer players. Please follow the link for 2020 Open Grade Players transfer –

Competition officers’ team would be collaborating with HNZ to approve the transfer requests. If the transfer is just within the Wellington Association, then Club can fill in the form and send it WHA for approval. 

For inter-Association transfers it is up to the Club requesting transfer to manage the process and ensure all party approval before the player concerned can take part in the Open Grade WHA competition. 

Note that we will not approve transfers for players that are not “financial’ unless there is some form of representation from the player on how any unfinancial status is to be rectified.

2020 Players re-grading

For players re-grading, clubs can send an email to WHA at mentioning the reason of re-grading.
