Tennis SA have been doing a great job in keeping Clubs and Associations up to date with the ever-changing Covid situation. The latest information is below, but for the most accurate and up to date information, visit the Tennis SA website and check out their Latest News section.

Competitions and organised matches
All organised competitions and matches have been put on hold until further notice.

Tennis Coaching
At this stage tennis coaching is not permitted under the current Direction. TSA are hopeful that there will be an update in the coming days.

Casual Tennis
Tennis courts can be open for a casual hit of tennis, but not organised competitions or matches.

The Direction for Public Activities is available here. If in doubt, please err on the side of caution for the safety of our community. For further advice, please contact the COVID Information Line on 1800 253 787.

If you are a Club requiring further support from individual Tennis SA departments, please email tennissacomms@tennis.com.au and they will be very happy to assist.

The HTA will advise when we can recommence our regular competitions, once we get the green light from SAPOL/SA Health.

All the best everyone, and look out for each other.

Jo Casey, HTA President
