The below message was sent to Tennis Victoria affiliated Clubs on Monday 3 August.
Dear Tennis Victoria Affiliate,
Yesterday the Victorian Government announced that from 6pm on Sunday 2 August, Victoria entered a State of Disaster.
Based on the announcement by the State Premier, Dan Andrews and further advice from Sport and Recreation Victoria:
- All tennis clubs and facilities must close in Metropolitan Melbourne until further notice.
- All tennis activity in Regional Victoria (including Mitchell Shire) will move to Stage 3 restrictions from Thursday 6 August. You can view the Community Tennis Guidelines for Stage 3 restrictions here.
We know this is a difficult time for everyone. It is important that we respect the new restrictions for our own health and the health and safety of the wider community.
We are here to support you as much as we can. Please contact your usual Tennis Victoria representative and we will be happy to help.
Please do stay safe and healthy during this difficult time and hopefully we can see a Return to Tennis again in the Spring.
