Tennis Geelong 2020 Winter COVID-19 Regulations
Before attending a tennis venue or playing tennis, you need to consider your individual situation noting that the COVID-19 virus can spread very quickly and result in very serious medical complications in some people. Like any activities, there are some inherent risks involved and by participating you are accepting those risks.

Please note that the below competition regulations are to be used in conjunction with the COVID-19 Community Tennis Guidelines for Victoria and must be followed by players, parents and clubs running or participating in Tennis Geelong Pennant competitions. Tennis Geelong Committee's consider any breaches to these guidelines serious and will investigate any rumoured breaches of these guidelines. Any substantiated breaches could result in suspension.

Before you arrive for your first match in each Pennant Competition, Tennis Geelong must have agreement from each player and parent that wishes to participate or attend, that they will follow the guidelines outlined below. This is achieved by the submission of this form.
