Firstly, we hope that you and your families are doing OK in these difficult times.
We are writing to you to provide an update on the situation with regard to re- opening our tennis club in the wake of the Corona Virus. As you know Victoria has flattened the curve to the extent that restrictions are slowly being eased and last Monday the Premier announced the first of these changes. These changes “open up the opportunity for some sports to make their playing surfaces available in a limited capacity following strict guidelines.“
As is often the case the latest guidelines are open to interpretation. The club has been directed by Manningham City Council not to open our facilities yet, but to prepare a plan to reopen that provides manages the risks associated with opening our facilities that adheres to Sport & Recreation Victoria’s Safe Return to Play Guidelines which have only just been released.
We appreciate your patience while these important steps are taken and will provide a further update at the earliest opportunity.
