Australia, 21 May 2020 |

Have you been missing tennis? The good news is tennis clubs and facilities across Australia are beginning to reopen as social distancing regulations lift.

Following safety measures on court is still important, so we recommend the following:

  • Wash your hands before and after play
  • Don’t share personal items such as water bottle and towel
  • Avoid touching your face when on court
  • Use your own racquet and avoid sharing tennis balls where possible
  • Maintain social distancing on court. Singles is a much safer option than doubles
  • Touch racquets instead of shaking hands at the end of matches
  • Only use every second court where possible
  • Don’t worry about changing ends
  • Download the COVIDSafe app

We also suggest checking regulations in local areas before playing. The rules currently differ across each state and territory, so visit your Member Association website for more information.
