Suspension of Tennis Macarthur Competitions due to Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Issued 18 March 2020

Effective immediately Tennis Macarthur is suspending all its sanctioned community programs until further notice. This decision applies to the following programs:

  • Tuesday Ladies Midweek
  • Tuesday Night Men’s Doubles
  • Wednesday Night Singles Match Play
  • Open Court Session
  • Thursday Ladies Midweek
  • Thursday Night Mixed
  • Saturday Morning Junior Competition
  • Saturday Morning Hot Shots Match Play
  • Saturday Afternoon Doubles

This decision has been made in the interest of the health and wellbeing of our volunteers, members, families and the broader community as a priority. As our programs are not essential and are held for our Members recreation and enjoyment this was considered an appropriate measure to avoid bringing people together, in order to help contain the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). In the case of our Junior and Hot Shots programs for example, this decision is consistent with Government mandates to suspend all inter-school sports activities.

We acknowledge that this will cause some logistical challenges when we are able to resume our programs, and that many programs are in progress where fees have been paid. As there is no way to predict when we will be able to resume, we are not able to provide any further information in relation to this other than to say our intention is for no one to be financially disadvantaged by this decision.

While the above programs have been suspended, Wests Tennis Club is still operating as usual.

As this is a fast-changing situation, this decision will be reviewed weekly. We understand this decision may cause some inconvenience, however we emphasise our most important objective is ensuring our community remains healthy, and the risk of the virus spreading is minimised during this difficult and uncertain time.

We will continue to keep you updated and thank you for your cooperation.

Regards,
Craig Barrett

Issued 15 March 2020

Effective immediately Tennis Macarthur are postponing all competitions and tournaments for the next seven (7) days until 22 March 2020. This decision will be reviewed in the coming days.

This decision is based on the move by Tennis Australia to postpone all sanctioned tournaments, competitions and events to avoid large gatherings of people in attempt to contain the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) and minimise the inevitable strain on our healthcare system.

We realise this may cause inconvenience in the short-term however, our objective is ensuring our community remains healthy and strong.

Regards,
Craig Barrett
