Make Up Lessons – 2020 Summer Coaching Season

The Summer 2020 Coaching Season had a lot of rainouts.  For this reason our team has organised extra sessions before the end of the season so you have every chance to make up any classes you may have missed due to rain, sickness or being away!

We want to remind all our players although we would love everyone to do their make ups before the end of the year but we also know this may not be possible.   There will be other options in the future to make up these sessions…

  • 2021 January Sessions (schedule will be published soon)
  • Do a make up session during the 2021 Autumn Season starting February 2021

HOW TO BOOK

  1. Choose from the make up sessions below
  2. Email  your selections to makeups@tenniscanberra.com.au

Hi Parents & Players,
Due to the consistent rainfall Thursday & Friday.  We have no choice but to CANCEL all SATURDAY morning classes & Hot Shots Match Play at Old Parliament House & Majura Tennis Club (Dickson).  The courts are already underwater and will remain underwater for most of Saturday.
MAKE UP SESSIONS:
We understand that this is the last day of the Autumn Season and our team will be running a couple of MAKE-UP sessions on Sunday with the first make up session being SUNDAY September 6th for all those who have attended the Autumn Season.  There will be more information to come on how to sign up for the make up session.
We haven’t had much luck for Saturday but starting next week the sun is scheduled to shine for the first SATURDAY of our SPRING SEASON!!
Stay warm Canberra,

Avi, Kim, Neil,  Pedro, Robbie & Sam

Update: 7:02am – Not getting any luck!
Hi Saturday Players & Parents,
Last week was an easy decision, this morning not too easy as there is minimal rain, however after checking the courts the over-night rain has flooded our courts and it is too dangerous to play.
For this reason all SATURDAY MORNING AUGUST 18TH CLASSES at Old Parliament House & Dickson are CANCELLED.
We are thinking of hosting a make-up session next Sunday August 24th. More information to come.
Have a good weekend.

Wet Weather Procedure – Follow these steps

The biggest question we get when the sky turns grey is, what happens if it rains? Do we still go ahead?

The simple answer is no, however, it isn’t always black and white due to the rain coming – before, during or after a lesson.

Below are 3 scenarios that may play out.  Please read them and choose the most appropriate one depending on the day.

Scenario #1: Overnight & Morning Rain… Do afternoon classes still go ahead?

If the weather clears in time, we go ahead as normal.

Currently not raining – 1-2hours before your session…

On clearing day, assuming we are going ahead unless you hear otherwise

You will be notified by the following platforms if rain has affected any session 1-2 hours before play.

  1. E-mail (please check your e-mail)
  2. Tennis Canberra Facebook Post – Join the Page CLICK HERE
  3. Tennis Canberra Instagram Stories – @TennisCBR

Scenario #2: Rain hits within an hour of the lesson…

If you do not hear anything, assume we are going ahead as normal.  There are instances where rain is falling in one part of Canberra and not in the other.

Raining where you are within an 1 hour before your session…

You will be notified by the following platforms if rain has affected any session 1 hour before play.

  1. E-mail (please check your e-mail)
  2. Tennis Canberra Facebook Post – Join the Page CLICK HERE
  3. Tennis Canberra Instagram Stories – @TennisCBR

Please note, our coaches may be on court coaching which means we are going ahead as normal as we cannot update any information.

Scenario #3: Rain hits during a lesson…

It happens. Everyone gets prepared and the sky falls.  There is nothing we can do but get our players off court and a judgement on if we can play will depend on if the rain is clearing, the safety of the court surface and the damage the water has on our equipment.

If the coaches decide we can longer continue the session, the team will send  players home and send information to players who are scheduled to play later in the session.  An SMS will be sent to players that are scheduled to play in the next session within 30 minutes of play.

Information will be uploaded to the following platforms:

  1. E-mail (please check your e-mail)

Frequently Asked Question… Can I do a make up class?

Of course… Please follow the procedure to book in a make up class.  “Make-up’s” can be done at any time during the season you are currently in.  No make up’s can be done in the next season unless there are cancellations in the last week of the current season.

  1. See the Weekly Timetable CLICK HERE
  2. Identify which session you would like to do for your make up (give at least 48 hours before your intended make up session)
  3. E-mail play@tenniscanberra.com.au with the information of the session you missed plus  information about the make you wish to participate in (date, time & program)
  4. Wait for the Tennis Canberra Team to give you the green light (we will reply via e-mail)

Note to Walk-To-Tennis Participants – We ALWAYS run a walk!

For those students that participate in the After-School Walk at our selected schools.  We will always carryout a walk to the club.  This is because some parents cannot pick up their kid/s due to work constraints.  You do have options on a rain day:

  1. Pick up you child at schools – An SMS must be sent to 0416 186 121 so we can account for this student
  2. Go ahead on the walk as normal – You don’t need to let us know just see the list below to help us prepare for a wet weather walk:
  • Pack an umbrella
  • Rain Jacket or Poncho

Our team will have emergency umbrellas and ponchos however, we recommend students to have their own.
