Status of Tennis Club Programs During the COVID-19 Crisis

As of 24 March 2020, by order of UQ & UQ Sport, all UQ Tennis Club programs have been cancelled until further notice.

This means all UQ Tennis Club programs (Social Tennis, Fixtures, Tournaments and Practice) have now ceased for an undetermined period.

The situation with the COVID-19 Coronavirus outbreak is changing rapidly.  On Tuesday morning (24 March), the University administration issued a directive that all activities being undertaken by UQ sporting clubs were to cease immediately.

The University administration has deemed the cessation of club activities as a necessary and socially responsible action given the risk of COVID-19 Coronavirus transmission in organised gatherings.  While this directive is in place, UQ Sport’s insurers have advised that previously endorsed activities will no longer be covered.

There was no indication in the directive as to whether this ban will be long-term and when it will be reviewed.

This directive supersedes the information provided by UQ Sport management on Friday, 20 March, where the continuation of the Club programs was approved provided procedures were modified as described in the notice sent out by the UQ Tennis Club to UQ Tennis players on Monday night (23 March).

Please do not inundate the Club with questions that Club officials cannot answer at this time.  All players will be informed promptly when clear information is available

Once the situation has become clearer, the Club’s Management Committee will decide whether programs that have commenced are just halted or totally cancelled and the consequent financial implications.

As of 26 March, all UQ Sport venues are closed and all programs are cancelled until further notice. As the situation is constantly changing, check what is happening with UQ Sport venues and programs at the UQ Sport Alerts page
