Covid -19 (Updated 8/6/2020)

Approved: COVID Safe Plan for Outdoor Sports

We are pleased to announce the Industry COVID Safe Plan for Outdoor Sports has been approved by the Queensland State Government.

This plan allows for tennis venues to operate programs with up to 10 people per court, as per the exemption request submitted by Tennis Queensland. This change will allow multi-court and multi-use venues to host multiple groups (no more than 20 people per group) on site at your venue at one time, with strict compliance measures in place.

Prior to implementing this change, affiliates should note:

  • There must be no co-mingling of groups where multiple groups of 20 are proposed within a designated space
  • Management and segmentation of groups must be applied
  • Strict hygiene measures must be applied

For compliance with the Queensland State Government, all coaches and affiliates must complete the following checklists:

On completion, a representative from your venue will need to sign the QLD Government compliance statement. This must be displayed publicly at the venue to comply.

An updated Return to Play Roadmap and further information about the latest Health Advice will be distributed on Monday 8 June 2020.
