UTR IS HERE
Tennis Northern Beaches would like to announce that we have partnered with UTR through our competition software provider XPOINT SPORTS. Moving forward all match results will now be counted towards a Universal Tennis Rating ( UTR ) as well as the existing IPR provided by xpoint. It is vital that we implement this as the Universal Tennis Rating (UTR) is making tennis universal, open and equal. UTR provides a real time view of player’s true skill level. It is used widely throughout the tennis community by professionals, collegiate players, juniors and recreational players. Having a UTR like the xpoint IPR enables you to track your progress, find level-based play and expand your tennis network to play with people across any age and gender.
Please contact us for more information and keep an eye on our competiton forms and calendars.
JULY GUIDELINE Update from TNSW
AUGUST Update from TNSW
Yesterday evening the Office of Sport released a letter from the Chief Health Officerhighlighting several recommendations in regards to inter-regional/zonal community sport which comes into effect for an initial six week period.
These recommendations include:
Cease activities that result in the mixing of participants and staff from different regions (Metro to Country / Country to Metro), for example by ceasing zone, regional or state championships or competitions
Cease any activities that result in overnight stays (e.g. multi-day training camps) due to increased risk of COVID transmission in residential-type settings with shared facilities
Cease face-to-face social activities relating to community sports (e.g. award ceremonies, end-of-season social gatherings, post-training group dinners)
Avoid carpools or bus travel with people from different household groups where possible
For local activities, limit spectators to one parent only, where the child requires parental supervision during the sporting activity.
As a result of these recommendations, Tennis NSW are advising that the following types of tournaments, competition or events are cancelled or re-scheduled with immediate effect and for a further 6 week period;
Regional Representative tournaments
Regional or Zonal talent camps
Champion of Champions
School Gala Days or Festivals
Inter-School Round Robin events e.g. Todd Woodbridge Cup
Local Intra and Inter-Club competitions will continue to operate including the TNSW facilitated Sydney Badge and the NSW Super Series events. We continue to ask that all event organisers are monitoring entries to limit significant travel, overnight stays and ensure that every host venue has an appropriate COVID-19 Safety Plan.
Please accept our apologies for the short notice in regards to this advice however this was only received at 5pm on Monday 17 August. We have moved quickly to interpret these recommendations and land on a position that we believe is aligned with the intent with which they have been issued.
If you have any questions please contact your local Club Development Officer or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hardcourt Interdistrict 2020 Update
It is with a great deal of regret that Hardcourt Association have to advise that we have had to cancel the STL Interdistrict Competition 2020 effective immediately due to the recent restrictions from the NSW Department of Health relating to Corona Virus.
This is the first time in some 90 years, apart from the war years, that the Interdistrict competition has not been run. In arriving at this decision the major factor Hardcourt had to take into account was the direction to implement the following updated recommendations: from the Department of Health dated Tuesday 18 August 2020 -
1. Cease activities that result in the mixing of participants and staff from different regions, for example by ceasing zone, regional or state championships or competitions
2. Cease face to face social activities relating to community sports (eg Award Ceremonies)
3. Car Pooling or bus transport from different household groups.
Before this decision was taken, wide consultation was undertaken with the Executive of Hardcourt, the Competition Committee, representatives of Tennis NSW (our partners in this Competition), as well as numerous parents and coaches. The overwhelming response was the only option available to Hardcourt was to, regrettably, cancel the remainder of the competition for 2020.
Hardcourt Association sincerely thank all Associations, Clubs and Coaches for your understanding and patience during this extremely difficult period and they look forward to our entries for a renewed competition in 2021.
