March 13 - May 13
CORONAVIRUS – GUIDELINES TO OUR MEMBERS
As we respond to the unprecedented COVID-19 situation we encourage you to be ‘alert not alarmed’.
Tennis Australia has developed strict guidelines for clubs to follow.
Regarding Tennis League, Tennis West encouraging clubs to adhere to the government guidelines, which at this stage only precludes people who are sick, in contact with virus patients, or who have travelled from high risk countries, from attending public places.
Therefore, until we are advised otherwise, Tennis West League will continue as planned.
Should public health advice and this position change, we will update you immediately.
What we are doing:
- Remaining aware and up to date with advice from the Tennis Australia and communicating any relevant information to you our club members.
- Scheduled tournaments (both host and attending) are being monitored on a case-by-case basis and we are communicating regularly with Tennis West.

What we ask from you and our club members:
- If you present with any cold, flu or fever symptoms please do NOT attend the tennis club or any club events and seek medical advice.
- We encourage you and your visitors to practice good hygiene – you will see signage around Next Gen and the Pavilion where you find hand sanitizer for your use.
- At this stage we will continue with any planned club activities, but we advise your and your visitors to practice good hygiene, avoid shaking hands or high-fives, and advise anyone who is feeling unwell, has had contact with infected individuals, or has travelled to any high risk countries to avoid attending the club or any associated club events.
