12 May 2020 | Tennis Victoria

Tennis Victoria is delighted that following the easing of restrictions by State Government in Victoria, we can now recommend that some limited forms of tennis can restart from 13 May 2020.

We sincerely thank everyone in the tennis community for your patience and for sticking with us through this very difficult time.

To support the Victorian tennis community in restarting play and coaching we have developed a comprehensive Return to Tennis Toolkit.  Clubs, centres and coaches have been invited to use the information in the Return to Tennis Toolkit to assess their capability to provide a safe environment if they wish to reopen their club.

The Toolkit includes:

  • Guidelines for restarting play safely and within the revised Government restrictions
  • Checklist of things to consider before opening
  • Resources to assist reopening, such as posters and templates.

The Toolkit was developed with input from a number of club volunteers, centre operators, coaches and association representatives.  Thank you to everyone who joined our discussions to support and advise us.

We know the last few weeks have been challenging, and we have appreciated all the support Tennis Victoria has received from the tennis community.  It will take a little while before we are fully up and running but we are excited to help our clubs and coaches take this positive first step.

We have worked together to stay #offthecourt and now we look forward to working with you to #returntotennis
