The below message was sent to Tennis Victoria affiliates on Thursday 17 September.

Dear Affiliates,

Following State Government’s announcement of the COVID-19 Roadmap to Reopening next steps for Regional Victoria, we are pleased to advise of an update to our most recent Community Tennis Guidelines for Regional Victoria.

We are now able to share the following updates:


With Regional Victoria moving to the third step of the Victorian COVID-19 Roadmap, there are some further changes to our Community Tennis Guidelines.

What does this mean for tennis?

  • Singles and Doubles play permitted.
  • Competition tennis can return.
  • Group coaching for up to 10 participants in addition to the coach.

You can view the updated Community Tennis Guidelines for Regional Victoria here.


Government have not yet provided a further update for the next step of the Roadmap for Metro Melbourne.  We are continuing to advocate strongly for a return to play from 28 September (Step 2), but do not yet have confirmation of this from Government. We will update you as soon as we know more.

Warm Regards
Tennis Victoria
