Australia, 26 May 2020 |

As social distancing restrictions ease across the country, it’s great to see lots of Australians taking the opportunity to get back out on tennis courts.

There are new rules to follow, such as players asked to tap racquets instead of shaking hands at the end of each match and use their own marked tennis balls. These changes are important to make the return to tennis as safe as possible. We promise it’s not about stopping any fun!
