Tennis Kids Holiday Camps & Adult Social Doubles to make a return

We are still transitioning back to tennis and every week we can give the green light to a suspended program.  Just a reminder that not every program has restarted due to COVID related restrictions, coaches still making their return and club policies.  We continue to work with all our clubs and Tennis ACT affiliations so our restart is as smooth and as safe as can be.

The Return – Opting in for the 2020 Autumn Season

The Return – Opting in for the 2020 Autumn Season

The Return – Opting in for the 2020 Autumn Season

Tennis Canberra players we are happy to announce tennis is slowly making its return and we cannot wait to welcome you back on court.  We thank everyone for their support over the last 5 months as COVID19 was the crescendo of bad luck. We have only just recovered from the smoke and hail earlier in 2020.

The hard work is not over and the transition on court will have teething issues. COVID19 has taken a hit on our team but we will work hard for the rest of the year to bring some positive energy back in our humble community.

Starting MONDAY MAY 25th small group lessons will take place with limited numbers.  Please read the information below and how to opt-in to use your credits in the Autumn Season.

Support Tennis Canberra and order your playing Hoodie & Shirt.  Web-store closes May 31st

Important note for WALK-TO-TENNIS: AFTER-SCHOOL PROGRAM – Due to clubhouses remaining closed access to the bathroom is limited.  For this reason we cannot run our WALK-TO-TENNIS: AFTER-SCHOOL PROGRAMS until clubhouses may open.  We welcome these players to join a junior program.

Insight into Tennis Canberra at present…

We are hoping all our players understand there is still many restrictions in place and barriers that we need to overcome.  Getting to where our academy was at Pre-Covid will take up to 24 months.  As there is a limit to the capacity we do ask players and parents to be as flexible as they can in regards to scheduling.

We are forecasting every single month of 2020 will see more options open up.  We will do our very best to make sure this information is passed on as this may help you scheduling your busy week.

Biggest changes post COVID-19 – Loss of coaches…

As you know our tennis coaches are a big factor in the number of sessions we can run and due to COVID-19 half our team have gone back to their home town and it is uncertain if they will return or when they will return.  Consequently, there will be some sessions that we will not be offered.

Not all clubs will open at the same time – limitations on service

As our coaches work with many tennis clubs around Canberra every club is their own entity and have their own situation.  We thank all our club volunteer committees for their hard work in they tough time.  Some class may allow us to restart lessons, some clubs may hold off lessons until further restrictions lift.

Competitions – Using Remaining Credits

Social Doubles & ACT Team Tennis

Due to the fact not all players are in Canberra, running the rest of the competition is almost impossible to co-ordinate.  The saving grace is that there was only 1 or 2 competition sessions left in the Summer Competition Season.  For this reason we are allowing players to use their credits for the following:

  • Old Parliament House Membership (if already a member you can use your credits for a friend to obtain a Membership).  Members can hire a court for FREE and play with other members
  • Use credits for the upcoming competition (competition dates will be announced once restriction levels allow larger gatherings)

Opt-in for a Old Parliament House Tennis Club Membership – E-mail return@tenniscanberra.com.au expressing your interest to uptake a Old Parliament House Membership

Membership Options:

  • Adult Membership: $150 (not including credit)
  • Family Membership: $250 (not including credit)

How you can support Tennis Canberra during the COVID-19 shutdown

How you can support Tennis Canberra during the COVID-19 shutdown

How you can support Tennis Canberra during the COVID-19 shutdown

Our Tennis Canberra team is determined to ride out this pandemic. From battling smoke, hail and rain it feels like we’ve been “down a break” before the year even started.

Our coaches could just laugh during the hail storm, while watching our cars get destroyed. We could just ask ourselves what was coming next? An earthquake was my guess…  A pandemic was not even a thought at the time but watching COVID-19 shutdown our business in a space of 3 days. It left us feeling empty, stressed and confused.  It was the silent storm that took the country off-guard.

For most our current Tennis Canberra coaches the goal is to return to the community we love but we face some obstacles ahead.  Restarting our programs will not be like pressing the unpause button.  We will need to re-energise, restructure and rebuild our humble community from the bottom-up.

Over the last week our team has been overwhelmed with messages of support.  Your love is enough to give us the motivation to continue the daily grind.  Like Rafa, Ash Barty and Lleyton Hewitt we are going to take inspiration from them to work even harder during the toughest of times.

HOW YOU CAN HELP… FROM LITTLE THINGS BIG THINGS GROW

Cashflow is the major factor in the Tennis Canberra  fallout from COVID-19.  We are hoping we can limit the structural and financial losses.  As mentioned in previous updates, a couple of our coaches are not eligible for Government assistance as they are on a Temporary Visa (we really hope this rule changes but we are not holding our breath). For this reason, our team has decided looking after Coaches Pedro & Sam as our top priority as they are the future of Tennis Canberra.

We thank all those who have offered to donate funds or telling us to keep the remaining lessons that we haven’t completed.  As much as we may need these breaks we believe that if you have paid for our services we will  follow-through and complete these remaining sessions in due time.  Just be ready to hit the courts when we have the green-light. We love what we do an no money will change our passion for coaching a sport we love.

The best way to help our team is to support the “Tennis Canberra services” listed below or Pre-purchase a 2020 Spring Coaching Season Package.

Junior Program - ACT - Toddler Tennis Canberra - ACT - Kids

PRE-PURCHASE SPRING 2020 COACHING PROGRAM

  • Start Date: August 24 – December 20th
  • 15-week season
  • Junior & Adult Coaching Groups
  • Walk-To-Tennis: After-school Pick Up Program Available (Selected Schools)

Not only will this help manage cashflow during the shut down it will help us plan to make a seamless transition back on to the court.

We sincerely thank you for your support and will work extremely hard to run even better lessons when we get the green light.


Most of the sessions listed in the 2020 SPRING Season have a high chance of going ahead however, it is subject to change pending on the COVID-19 fluid situation.

Private Lesson – One-on-one Personal Training

At this present time one-on-one Private Lessons are the only on court service we can run.  We are hoping that this service can help those who use tennis to increase their physical, mental and emotional health.  These sessions will be under strict COVID-19 guidelines and will be offered in-line with Tennis Australia’s advice.


  • 1-hour Private Lessons – $80
  • 1-hour Private Lesson (x2 a week) – $70
  • 1-hour Private Lesson (x3 a week) – $60

  • 1-hour Two Player Split Private (30 mins each) – $80 ($40 each)
  • 1.5-hour Two Player Split Private (45 mins each) – $110 ($55 each)

RACQUET & RESTRING – PICK-UP & DROP-OFF HOME SERVICE 

Restringing

Due to the fact our coaches are off court we have a lot of time to service your racquet.  Our restringing service includes – restring, re-grip, racquet clean plus *PICK UP & DROP OFF to your Canberra home

Racquets & Home Sporting Equipment

Need a new racquet to hit against the wall? Or do you need a mini court set up. We sell sporting equipment for you to stay fit. *We can arrange drop off to your door!


*We ask to leave a google review, send a photo for our social media or upload a photo enjoying thanking your Tennis Canberra coach. This service will only be available during the on-court COVID-19 shutdown.

PRE-PURCHASE TENNIS CANBERRA “The Return” PLAYERS SHIRT

New decade, new beginnings.  With a fresh new logo launched early in the year we knew 2020 was going to be one to remember.  We’ve always wanted to do this but never had the time but we want all our players to wear Tennis Canberra on their heart.

We are in the process of designing a special 2020 players shirt.  It will take inspiration from the events from 2020 and the new life Tennis Canberra will have once we return to the courts later in the year.

Although Tennis Australia has given us the green light to manage small coaching groups the only service our Tennis Canberra coaches will be providing are Private Lessons of no more than 3 players and will follow strict on court and venue guideline.

Private lesson will give a select few Tennis Canberra coaches to make a small income for basic needs.

Do I get credit for the remaining sessions left in my package?

When will I be able to re-join?

Once Tennis Australia allows us to run larger groups we will start coaching programs 1-week after restrictions lift.

Players will be able to re-join when we resume coaching programs or within a year from our restart date.

As competitions takes about a month to promote and organise competitions will be active one-month after restrictions lift.

  • May 11th, (Term 2, Week 3)
  • May 25th (Term 2, Week 5)

The Initial Tennis Canberra Fallout from COVID-19

It does hurt not to get on the court today and it was harder to tell all our coaches we would not be on court for the foreseeable future.  I got a couple hours of sleep knowing that today was going to be the day we suspend our regular groups.

Our team has dealt with fire & smoke, hail & rain but nothing would prepare us for a shutdown with no return date.

It has been an extremely long week starting Sunday 6pm.  Once announcements were made about limiting activities to outdoors and the closure of state boarders two coaches – Maddie and Andjela went back to their interstate home to be with family.

In four-days our humble team has suffered a huge blow and no Government support will see our small business come out the other side unscathed.  Two of our coaches Pedro and Sam are on a temporary visas and for this reason will not receive any Government support.  Pedro’s partner also lost their job and if one of coaches are hurting we all hurt with them.

Our primary goal over the next 1-6 months is to look these two as are unbelievable and passionate coaches and the future of Tennis Canberra.  If you do want to get on court for a weekly or casual private please get in touch.  The little income from privates lessons will give them the basics – rent and food.

We will do our best to stay motivated, use this time to learn more about our trade and build a better service as we know that it means so much to everyone.  Our tennis family is something special we have so many friends and everlasting memories.

We will continue to be in touch over the tough period. I thank you for all your support and wish you and your family greater health.
