Return to Tennis Competition

Tennis Victoria is delighted to announce that the Victorian Premier, Daniel Andrews, has confirmed that community competition can resume for non-contact sports, including tennis, from next Monday, 22 June.  You can read the announcement here.  This is a great result for tennis.

The last few months have been extremely challenging for the tennis community, but this marks the next positive step in the return of our sport from the COVID-19 crisis.  Once again, Tennis Victoria would like to thank everyone involved in tennis across the State for your ongoing support and for the safe way in which the return to tennis has been managed, allowing Government to have confidence in now allowing competition to return.

Association tennis competition can recommence from 22 June.  We will post Guidelines for the Return to Community Tennis Competition on the Tennis Victoria website in the next few days along with a timetable for the return of our own competitions including Pennant.

MARCH 14th 2020
In light of the recent postponement and cancellation of sporting events around the country due to coronavirus (COVID-19, the Southern Peninsula Tennis Association has decided to postpone Rounds 8 & 9 of the current season due to medical advice received from Tennis Australia.
This means that Monday Night Social Comp, Wednesday Night Mens, Thursday Night Ladies and Open Court Sessions, will be postponed for the next two weeks, with the aim to commence play after the school holidays as usual and playing Rounds 8 & 9 at the end of the season.
This decision is based on expert medical advice and is inline with the recommendations of the global tennis community.
We realise this may cause inconvenience in the short term, however our objective is ensuring our community remains healthy and strong.
We will continue to keep you updated and thank you for you cooperation during this difficult time. Please pass this message onto all of your teams participating in the night competition.
Kind Regards,
Southern Peninsula Tennis Association
