New Members Welcome

Update: Wednesday 12 May 2020

With the gradual easing of COVID-19 restrictions, tennis clubs and centres across Victoria are set to reopen on a limited basis, which is welcome news at Somers Tennis Club! Based on Tennis Victoria’s Return to Tennis Guidelines released yesterday (12 May), this means:

  • Gatherings of no more than 10 people for:
    • Singles or doubles play
    • Small group coaching
  • All activities must be on outdoor courts
  • Clubhouse to remain locked at all times (the Club Coach is permitted to unlock the clubhouse to enable access to the toilets for coaching students where required).
  • Association competition is not permitted.

By following these Guidelines, Somers Tennis Club is able to provide playing opportunities to our community to help boost both physical health and mental wellbeing. 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.

Our clubhouse and toilets will be thoroughly cleaned tomorrow morning (14 May), including the gate keypad and handle, net posts and net winders. Side gates are to remain padlocked at all times and the scoreboards and water fountain are not to be used until further notice. Please observe social distancing and hygiene protocols which remain a priority for the safety of the community. Hand sanitiser will be made available for use inside the front gate and we ask that you wash/sterilise your hands before and after you play. Members may access the courts via the main gate using the new access code emailed this evening. Non-members please contact Louise Adams on 0402 154 952 to arrange access. Court hire fees apply for non-members.

Coaching will resume from next Monday 18th May. Our Club Coach, Tony Withers, will be in direct contact with coaching students. Tony has vacancies in his coaching program if you are interested in private or group lessons – contact Tony on 0413 331 014 for details.

This is an evolving situation and we will keep you informed of the latest recommendations and guidance on dealing with COVID-19 for tennis in Victoria. If you have any concerns or questions, please contact Charlie Alsop on 0400 294 393, or Louise Adams on 0402 154 952.

We look forward to seeing you at Somers Tennis Club!
