Tennis Victoria Update (18/10/2020)

Dear Tennis Fans,

We are delighted to have some good news for those of you in Melbourne.

Following announcements by Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews today, limited outdoor tennis coaching and recreational play can return in Metropolitan Melbourne from midnight tonight.

As always, we must await the Sport and Recreation Victoria (SRV) legal directions before we can provide the Return to Tennis Guidelines with full details, but here is what we know currently,

Metro Melbourne from Midnight tonight:

  • Outdoor tennis courts can reopen - clubhouses must remain closed.

  • Groups of up to 10 are allowed from a maximum of 2 households.  We don't yet know if this is per court or per venue and whether or not a coach will be included in the 10.

  • You can travel up to 25km from your home to a court, but no further.

NB. It is likely that Brimbank City Councils will require a signed COVIDSafe plan before a venue can reopen. 


Metro Melbourne from 1 Nov - as above PLUS:

  • Competition will return

Warm Regards,


St Albans East Tennis Club

 Tennis Victoria Update (28/9/2020)






Dear affiliates, 

Like you, we are extremely disappointed by Premier Daniel Andrews announcement that all tennis facilities are to remain closed as we move to Step 2 of the Government's COVID-19 Recovery Roadmap.  

We firmly believe that tennis, a physically distanced non-contact sport, can return safely to provide health and wellbeing opportunities to support people through isolation and to provide our coaches with much needed income.
We know today's news will be very hard to hear, and especially for coaches who need to get businesses back up and running.

We are considering our next steps and will continue to advocate for the safe return of tennis in Metropolitan Melbourne.  

In the meantime, we recommend that every tennis club and coaching business ensures its COVIDSafe Plan is in place so that when we do get the green light to reopen you will be ready to share your plans with local councils.  This is likely to be a requirement of reopening.  Resources to help with COVIDSafe planning are available here and we are here to help as much as possible during this very challenging time.

Kind Regards

Tennis Victoria

Community Tennis Update for Metropolitan Melbourne

Dear Tennis Fans,

Good afternoon, we hope this finds you well.


The following is an update from Tennis Victoria :

We are connecting with all of our Metro Melbourne stakeholders today in anticipation of COVID-19 restrictions hopefully being eased in Melbourne next week. 

We have been working hard, advocating strongly for a return to tennis. We are confident we have made positive progress and hope to see this reflected in Government announcements regarding Step 2 which we expect to come into effect on Monday 28 September.

Following a meeting with VicSport and State Government this lunchtime, we understand guidelines for community sport and recreation will be published in the next few days.  We anticipate this will mean, broadly, court hire can resume, 1-1 coaching will be allowed and 10 people per outdoor venue. 

However, the legal directions that allow us to confirm this change are often not available until the night of the change coming into effect.  Please understand that confirmation from us will not reach you until we have these legal directions.

At this time we will email the Return to Tennis Guidelines to you, make them available on our website and will also contact local councils to confirm the changes with them.

With this in mind, we would like to encourage every tennis club and coaching business to review your COVIDSafe plans and ensure they are ready for any reopening that might be announced.

It is very unlikely that competition will be allowed at Step 2 -this is likely to come at Step 3.  Therefore, the priority for COVIDSafe planning initially is venues (clubs and coaching businesses).

To prepare or review your plan, please visit the COVID-19 Return to Tennis Checklist on the Tennis Victoria website. A completed Checklist can operate as a COVIDSafe plan for your venue and operations.

You can reach out to your Tennis Victoria representative for further assistance.

The numbers are coming down, we're nearly there, let's stay the course and hopefully be back on court in some capacity for Step 2 of the Roadmap.

Kind regards
Tennis Victoria

COVID-19 Update - 29/09/2021

Dear affiliates,

We are pleased to share with you the update of how we can return to the court - across the state!

Thank you for your patience as we have worked through the many nuances in the State Government directives. From today, Metropolitan Melbourne can safely return to the court under the below restrictions. As communicated recently, the Chief Health Officer's directives were published early this morning and the below is the interpretation of these directives for tennis.

Unfortunately, late last night the City of Latrobe has entered a 7-day lockdown. This area now joins Metropolitan Melbourne and Mitchell Shire's restrictions.

There have been no further changes to Regional Victoria's restrictions.

Please continue to use and encourage venue users to practice COVIDSafe principles at all times.

Metropolitan Melbourne COVID-19 restrictions:

Tennis Coaches fall under the Personal Training classification and follow the newly established COVID-19 Vaccinated Activities Directions.

  • Group coaching can return with two people plus a coach (for participants and the coach who are not fully vaccinated).

  • Group coaching can return with five people plus a coach (for participants and the coach who are all fully vaccinated). The coach must sight evidence of vaccination for all five people and record this information. We have created a template to help you with this.

  • Participants younger than 12 years of age are treated as a fully vaccinated person.

  • As per the COVID-19 Vaccinated Activities Directions, there is a requirement of coaches or coaching business operators to collect, record, hold and sight vaccination information, if they are in excess of the patron limits (column 4 below).

    • Singles play can return for two people for participants who are not fully vaccinated.

    • Doubles play can return for four people from no more than two households for fully vaccinated participants. Participants must carry proof of vaccination and may be required to show this to an authrised officer at any time.

To support all tennis clubs and coaches with returning to the court, please visit our Tennis Victoria COVID-19 Return to Tennis Toolkit available on the Tennis Victoria website.
