Tennis Victoria last night (Thursday 26 March 2020) recommended to cease all tennis activity in Victoria temporarily in a bid to halt the further spread of Covid-19 (Coronavirus). To read Tennis Victoria’s recommendation click HERE
From 12.00pm noon on Friday 27 March, Pakenham Regional Tennis Centre’s Book-A-Court function will be closed to the public until further notice.
While there are no known visits by a Covid-19 carrier to any of Cardinia Leisure facilities, this precautionary action has been taken to support the Government’s effort to protect the health and safety of our country, and to minimise the impact on our health care system in the wake of this crisis.
Head of Sports and Stadium Dean Jamieson said that Aligned Leisure were fully supportive of the Tennis Victoria ’s decision and were hopeful it would be a positive step towards slowing the spread of the virus across the Country.
“The health and safety of our people, both staff and customers has always been our number one priority. We understand that there will be an impact felt by many from these closures, however believe this is the right decision to protect our community based on current advice.” said Mr. Jamieson.
“We are currently working to contact all of our valued members and guests to ensure that they are kept fully informed as further advice is received and look forward to welcoming everyone back at the earliest available opportunity.”
It is unclear at this stage how long the closure will be in effect for, with any decision on reopening to be based on advice from both the Australian Government and Tennis Victoria. Throughout the closure, we will be working to support our staff as best as we can and hope to be in a position for them to return to work soon.
