Special Note:  During 2020, work will begin on the construction of UQ’s new $65M Health & Recreation Centre which will open in 2022.  To make way for this development, UQ will be demolishing the Tennis Pavilion and the five main courts at the Tennis Centre which will have a huge impact on Tennis at UQ.  At this stage, demolition of the courts is not expected to happen until after the completion of First Semester Fixtures.  However, if demolition of the courts begins earlier than expected, there may have to be format changes in some competitions mid season to accommodate teams on significantly less courts—such as reducing all  matches to 3 first-to-six-games sets (2 singles & 1 doubles) and using two timeslots (7 to 8:30 p.m. and 8:30 to 10 p.m.).
