We’re sure many of you were excited to see the announcement from Tennis Victoria on 11th June hopeful of a return to competition tennis effective 22nd June 2020. (Please click this link for the full media release https://www.tennis.com.au/vic/news/2020/06/11/tennis-victoria-competitions-update)
We thought it timely to explain to you what this means. June 22nd now becomes the commencement for all Associations, Councils and Clubs to plan for the safe return of tennis to all facilities. Therefore, the possible mid-July dates for the return of comps as advised in our email last week are still the most likely scenario.
All associations are in the process of finalising teams and draws, hence the need to have planning time. We can assure you that whatever date is confirmed by each association for recommencement, Eildon Park Tennis Club will be ready to go.
As part of the return to tennis toolkit, and in line with the Victorian Government’s cautious easing of restrictions, EPTC is working closely with Council towards reopening community facilities (ie., the clubhouse) as soon as possible, while ensuring health and safety measures are in place to protect our community. In order to do this, there are some requirements that need to be met to ensure each facility and program can safely operate.
If you haven’t already done so, we strongly recommend once again that every member download the Covid-19 app.
There is a lot to be done, however we’re excited that we’re so close now to a re-start. Further information on confirmed dates will be communicated once known.
