Update on ERT Winter 2020 season.

Further to our recent virtual ERT Convenors meeting, which proved a very successful evening, ERT has continued a regular dialogue with Tennis Victoria officials to facilitate a return to Competition Tennis which was always the aim for our ERT Winter Competition to resume on the weekend  commencing 18th July 2020, albeit a shortened season.

Unfortunately with the latest Victorian Government and DHHS regulations, confirming  Stage 3 Covid 19 restrictions are to be re-introduced at midnight 8th July 2020 for the next 6 weeks – under these regulations, which we all must comply with, ERT has no choice but to cancel the ERT 2020 Winter Season. We respect the health and safety of all the Community as a priority, and we can all now look forward to the ERT Summer 2020/21 season, which is probably going to be commencing in early October 2020. More details later as to the timing of these details which we assume will be advised to Clubs in September 2020.

We would just like to confirm we appreciate the support/time/patience/understanding from all ERT Clubs, under these unprecedented times with Covid 19 and appreciate/understand the difficulties we now all collectively face again with no Community Competition Sport being allowed. Under the latest restrictions this includes the terrible ramifications, especially the financial position which we now all have to deal with, yet again.

Once we know some more information on Covid 19 from Tennis Victoria and/or the Gov’t/DHHS including our ERT 2020/21 Summer Competition we will be in contact by email and/or through the ERT website. Thanking you all for your understanding under these difficult circumstances, which we all hope we never experience again.
