AJL / Junior Pennant Competition - Urgent Notice

08 October 2020 |
Whilst we are still in stage 4 lockdown, Tennis Victoria are hopeful for a reduced AJL / Junior Pennant Sunday morning representative competition, prior to the end of this year.
If restrictions are eased and tennis competition is permitted, Tennis Victoria has now penciled in the 8th November for round 1. It will be a reduced 5 round only competition, with one week of finals.
Whilst we know many players are keen to get back, competing on court, we do respect and understand the work-load on volunteers to grade teams, organise fixtures, team manage players, liaise with clubs to assist us with the provision of courts for play and to understand and adhere to government guidelines regarding return to play, social distancing, hygiene protocols, gathering numbers, registration of court visitors, travel restrictions, etc.
Team entries will take all of this into consideration.
With all this in mind, we need to assess how many players would still be interested to compete in the Sunday morning AJL season, if it was to run from the 8th November until the 13th December?
Players who previously registered months ago, have all been sent an email this week. Can you all please email back a YES or NO to still playing, with your child’s name, by this Friday 9th October.
Please remember if you say YES, you are committing to being available for the full 5 matches.
If you haven’t already registered but are keen to be involved, (if competition is permitted to start), please email: [email protected] by end of day tomorrow, 9th October.
