Updated playing guidelines

Dear Members

We have had further advice from Sport and Recreation Victoria regarding guidelines for the return to tennis.

We can now accommodate a group of 4 people per court at any one time. This means that we can now have a maximum of 24 people on our courts at a time (plus a coach or minimum number of support staff reasonably required to manage an activity) each group should not mix or swap with each other and avoid any unnecessary contact with other groups.

Parents and/or spectators must remain in the car park or outside the Wheelers Hill complex.

Clubhouse will be CLOSED – Court opening hours for social play is from 7.30am to 5.00pm

Gate should be closed and locked after entering and departing the club, our key entry system enables us to monitor members, a requirement by Tennis Victoria and Monash City Council for tracking, in case of infection.

Members are to bring their own water, there will be no access to the water fountains on courts.

Maintain the 1.5m social distancing on and off the court. All members should show respect of physical distancing of other members at all times.

Members only are permitted to play – no visitors are allowed

Players should arrive ready to play, if you have to wait, please wait in your car in the car park. Members should check cars in car park before they enter.

Limit the number of balls you bring to the court.

If the courts are busy, players should limit their time on court to 1 hour, you may continue to play if there are no members waiting.

Please leave the courts as soon as you have finished play, no socialising.

Members to bring their own sanitiser, sterilise your hands before and after play.

We will continue to communicate with you and provide information as it becomes available.

Please note WHTC, along with most sporting clubs in Monash, is being monitored by Monash City Council – it is important that the above guidelines are followed.

You must not play if you are unwell or display any flu like symptoms or have been in contact with a confirmed or suspected case. Members are encouraged to download the COVIDSafe app to assist with contact tracing in the event someone within our club becomes infected.
