COVID19 Coaching Protocols

When the state government announced that Victoria was going into its second lockdown, tennis was very fortunate to be announced as one of the 5 sports that could continue (albeit with some minor modifications). We are super excited to be able to continue to deliver lessons unde the current climate.

The modifications to our program (classes which we can deliver) are as follows and are applicable at all our venues:

– Private One to One Coaching (Coach & Player)
– Semi-Private Coaching (Coach & Player and two players. Players can be from different households)
– Coaching for members of the same household (maximum of 4 to a court which includes the coach)

All players must abide by these rules when attending their lessons:

  1. Players must turn up for their lesson on time and leave immediately
  2. Family members or friends can not wait in the club grounds during the lesson
  3. Players cannot attend a lesson if they have any signs of illness or have been in contact with someone suffering from COVID19
  4. Players must hand sanitize when they enter then leave the club
  5. Players must bring their own drink bottle to their lesson
  6. Players must bring their own racquet. NO RACQUETS will be borrowed to students

The Future Demand Tennis Coaching Team will ensure we continue to provide a safe playing environment for everyone by:

  1. Wearing gloves throughout the lesson and any student practicing their serves will also have to wear gloves
  2. Maintaining a 1.5m space between coach and player at all times
  3. Ensuring that students do not handle any equipment and that they (the coach) set up and pack up all coaching equipment
  4. Students will have their own ball tube for the entire lesson to pick up balls and will not be able to handle tennis balls throughout the lesson
  5. Coaches will sanitize ball tubes after each session
