Updates to Tennis Community Play Guidelines

Following on from the most recent easing of restrictions on the 15 May, I’d like to take the opportunity to thank our tennis family in acknowledging and implementing the recommended guidelines and your continued observance to the public health orders.

We’re also pleased to hear that the resources provided have been well received and that they are assisting you as you re-open or plan to re-open your venues and welcome players back to our sport.

Ahead of the further easing of restrictions on 1 June, Tennis NSW are pleased to issue a revised set of guidelines in accordance with the planned changes. Please note that we are still awaiting the final Public Health Orders, so these published guidelines may be subject to small changes and revisions once these are released.

Significant updates to the Guidelines include:
* Lifting of restrictions on coaching ratios
* Clubhouses re-opening
Link to the updated guidelines is included below.

With the resumption of regional travel, we acknowledge that there will be questions asked in regards to the staging of tournaments. With respect to the resumption of TA sanctioned tournaments (AMT’s, JT’s and JDS), until all borders are open and the ranking system can operate freely, there is currently no date for the resumption of these level of tournaments. In the interim, Tennis NSW intends to provide alternative competitive opportunities across the State and we are working towards providing an update in the next week.

In regards to the Country Championships, the Tournament Committee are meeting this week to consider the options available to the staging of the tournament. We intend to communicate the decision week commencing 8 June.
The Return to Tennis Roadmap that was available on the Tennis NSW website and which was provided to you in the last email you received from us, has been removed and is no longer applicable due to the direction of the changes from the NSW Government. 

All of our collective actions in the past few weeks have led us to a point whereby we are able to resume our sport far quicker than what many of us envisaged a month or so ago.

May I thank you again for your support and assistance in helping the tennis community in NSW achieve this.

Stay safe and please continue to play by the rules.
