A Message from Hume Tennis Manager, Tim Connelly

Dear Hume Tennis Members and Community,

I know we are all very disappointed and very surprised on the news we have received that tennis facilities are not able to reopen, but Hume is still optimistic on the prospective return to tennis and are ready and eager to return as a COVID Safe facility.

The Hume team and I have been working closely with Hume City Council, Tennis Victoria and Tennis Australia to work towards tennis being recognised as a COVID safe sport and a continue to show our support towards our members who are waiting to return to the tennis court.

We understand just how difficult this time has been for many and we understand the impact that tennis is able to have on people which is why we are looking forward to reengaging with all our Hume Tennis community to continue to strengthen our physical, emotional and social wellbeing.

While the decision made by the Victorian Government is difficult to understand, we are confident that we know tennis is a COVID safe sport and that the most important thing is to keep our community safe as we all have an important role to play. Hume Tennis have continued to put processes in place to maintain social distancing such as a court’s distance between groups, as well as no touch points and regular sanitisation of equipment.

During this time, the Hume Team and I have continued to stay connected and have been virtually meeting regularly to ensure that we continue to grow the facility and make Hume the best it can be.

I would like to continue to assure you that when Hume does open on October 19th, we will have everything in place to get going straight away, and most importantly, make you feel safe.

The Hume Team and myself hope you are doing well during this time and we look forward to seeing everyone back at Hume very soon.

In the meantime, to show your support for the sport we all love and stay connected with Hume, follow us on social media and post your tennis memories and highlights with the #rallywithHume.
