Update, 20 March 2020

Dear Members,

It goes without saying that this is uncharted territory for us all, so we are looking for your support, loyalty and flexibility at this time to look after our valued community hub.

We are aiming to find a responsible balance between keeping our members safe and providing an environment where our relatively low contact sport can continue for those who choose to. The club has already, and is continuing to, put in place policies to protect is members, staff and visitors in line with communication from the Department of Health.

Our club will remain open for members to use the courts for their own organised hitting sessions, all coaching events will go ahead as well as hitting on the weekend. Please check Ian’s website for opportunities for private hitting lessons and the online organised Clik and Hit. The club house and bar will remain open with an increased cleaning schedule, but we may see some reduction in hours yet to be determined. Tennis West have put all their competitions and tournaments are on hold until further notice. We have decided that we will postpone our club championships also until later in the year as well as our next two social tournaments. As above, this is an ever-changing situation and we will endeavor to keep everyone informed in a timely matter should any new decisions be made regarding this.

We are just about at the end of our internal competitions for the season so the teams will be given the option on whether or not they wish to continue until finals. It is understood that each team can and will make that decision of their own accord and based on their own feelings of the situation.

We will be taking as many precautions as reasonable to ensure the safety of our patrons, including advising teams to wash their hands before and after games and please no handshaking.

We request all members and visitors to the club to adhere to the advice from the Department of Health and do not come to the club under the following circumstances -

  • if you have been in contact with someone who has contracted the virus, you should seek medical advice and isolate until you are clear of symptoms for 14 days.
  • if you have just returned from an overseas trip, you are required to isolate at home for a period of 14 days from the date of return to Perth.
  • If you have a confirmed case, you need to isolate yourself to prevent it spreading to other people.

As previously advised, please practice good hygiene as the best preventative measures to avoid contracting COVID-19.

  • Frequent washing of hands with soap and water before and after eating, and after toilet visits
  • Please wash your hands before and after playing tennis
  • Frequent use of alcohol-based hand sanitiser throughout the day
  • Coughing or sneezing into a tissue or into the crook of your arm, not your hand
  • Avoiding hand to mouth contact
  • Avoiding physical contact with others including hand shaking.

Please contact our Club Manager Clare if you have any queries or concerns or if you feel you may have been exposed to the virus.

Clare: 0438 395 424

Warm Regards,

Ceri Wagnell
APTC President
