All Pro Tennis Activities will continue.
We are very lucky, tennis is non contact, it’s played in small groups and it’s outside in the fresh air so we can still play.
In order to continue our tennis program we are asking all students to wash their hands and bring their own water bottle. Coaches will promote social distance and will limit physical contact in their classes. Equipment and facilities will be cleaned frequently.
It is important that anyone who is feeling unwell or has recently travelled overseas stays home and seeks medical advice.
It is very important in these difficult rimes we stay fit, healthy and social so let’s keep enjoying our tennis.
COVID-19 Community Tennis Guidelines for Continued Play
We can all take a few steps to minimise the effects of COVID-19 while still enjoying our time on the court.

Have been overseas or exposed to someone with COVID-19 in the last 14 days
Have flu-like symptoms
Or are in a high risk health category, for example elderly or have a pre-existing medical
Attending tennis activities
Only people core to playing should attend tennis activities such as players, participants,
coaches and operational personnel
Arrive and leave as close as possible to when you need to be there
Only one parent/guardian should accompany younger children where possible.
Tennis holds a unique advantage as a sport which requires no direct contact between players. You
Touch racquets instead of the regular pre or post match handshakes
Keep 1.5 metres away from other people while watching or attending an outdoors tennis
activity and avoid close contact by moving around indoors
Only players, officials and essential staff should be allowed in changerooms and clubhouses.
To protect against infection, you should:
Wash/sterilise your hands before and after you play and avoid touching your face while
Not share water bottles and bring your own full bottle
Wash your hands frequently with soap and water or hand-sanitiser when available, before
and after eating, after going to the toilet
Cover your coughs and sneezes and dispose of any used tissue immediately
Avoid touching your face
Keep your distance from people who are obviously sick
Be aware of what surfaces you touch.
Organising tennis activities
Promote prevention techniques and lead by example
Implement ways to minimise contact for both participants and staff
Minimise the amount of people around by limiting the amount of people on court and only
allowing players, officials and essential staff in the clubhouse
Postpone any large social gatherings
Plan for increased levels of staff/volunteer absences
Keep your team and your participants informed of the actions you’re taking
Leave gates ajar during opening hours so players don’t need to use handles to enter.
