Stay safe and look after each other
From the staff at In The Zone Tennis

27 March 2020

To the Tennis NSW family; our Members, Clubs, Volunteers and Coaches,

Tennis NSW strongly recommends that all tennis activities cease from midnight Friday 27 March 2020 across the state of NSW.

With the continued escalation of the COVID-19 crisis and in consultation with the tennis community and the NSW Government, the Board of Tennis NSW resolved today to recommend that all tennis activity cease from midnight Friday 27th March 2020. The recommendation is that:

  • ● All tennis clubs, venues, academies and centres cease operations until further notice
  • ● All tennis programmes and coaching be cancelled, including one-on-one coaching, until further notice
  • ● All club, association and social play be cancelled until further notice
  • ● All public court hire bookings cease until further notice

President of Tennis NSW, Kim Warwick said "The Board of Tennis NSW met this morning to consider the continued escalation of the COVID-19 crisis across Australia but most significantly across NSW. Our capital city, Sydney, is now at the epicentre of this pandemic in Australia and the Board feels that it is essential to put the wider community first and foremost in our decision making. The Premier has advised us today to not go outside unless we absolutely have to and that was at the forefront of our decision.

This was not an easy decision to make. We understand and feel the pain of our tennis operators and coaching community, a number of whom sit on our Board, however, we feel that it is a time to put lives before livelihoods. As a sport, we could not continue to guarantee the safety of all participants nor of our coaches or volunteers. Therefore, for the time being, we strongly recommend that all tennis activity cease in NSW."
