Somers Tennis Club & COVID-19

Update: Monday 22 June 2020

A further easing of restrictions was announced on 17 June. As a result, Tennis Victoria's Return to Tennis Guidelines have been updated to reflect the changes below:

  • Multiple groups of 20 within the facility at any one time for:
    • Singles or doubles play
    • Group coaching (the parent/guardian of younger children may want to have line of sight of activity, in line with the Victorian Childsafe Standards)
  • Competition is permitted and spectators are allowed in groups of 20 or less however must maintain physical distancing at all times
  • Clubhouses and pavilions can have up to 20 people per indoor space subject to the 1 person per 4m2 rule (in our case maximum 16 at any one time)
  • Social distancing must be practiced at all times.
  • Keep a record of everyone who enters the venue (name, phone number, date and time of attendance)

To keep tennis and the wider community safe, we must all take responsibility to minimise the effects and spread of COVID-19 and we ask you read the Return to Tennis Guidelines prior to attending Somers Tennis Club.

Hand sanitiser is available at the Club entrance. Please ensure you sanitise your hands on arrival and when departing the Club. We encourage you to download the COVIDSafe app to assist with participant tracking in the case of a positive COVID-19 test result of a participant.

Welcome

Founded in 1929, with two asphalt courts on Shire Council land at Garden Square, Somers Tennis Club has provided social and strong competition tennis to the community since then, except during the Second World War.

In 1984 the club moved to RW Stone Reserve in Camp Hill Road when two plexipave courts were built with lighting. The current clubhouse was built by volunteers and opened in 1994, replacing the old tin shed which had served as a clubhouse.

In December 2005 a further court 3 was added, this time a synthetic grass court with lights. In January 2013, the two plexipave courts were resurfaced in Rebound Ace HSA, a cushioned hard court system designed specifically for outdoor use. In November 2018, the synthetic grass court was resurfaced in Rebound Ace HSA and our halogen lights were replaced with more energy efficient LED lights.

Somers Tennis Club has maintained a healthy membership, made up of about two thirds local and one third non-resident members. Our spectacular surroundings are the envy of many, and our Club is delighted to be able to offer outstanding facilities for both social and serious tennis players, as well as the many community members who make regular use of our lovely clubhouse. New members are always welcome.
