  • Scarborough Park Courts Upgrade | ISLTA Junior Branch

    Prioritise Tennis: Your Feedback Is Needed on the Scarborough Park Courts Facility Upgrade The ISLTA Junior Branch Committee would like to encourage as many people as possible to complete the survey as well as urging any contacts you may have who support the courts being refurbished for the community to play tennis on, to also complete the survey . Please note that it's possible that to complete the survey you may be required to register. If that is the case and you prefer not to register, you can also send your feedback by the following methods: Mail: City Projects, PO Box 21, Rockdale NSW 2216 Email: Bayside Council is currently seeking feedback on the planned Scarborough Park Courts Facility Upgrade of the tennis courts at Hawthorne Street, Ramsgate. What's important to highlight in your feedback is that the upgrade must ensure that tennis can be played on all six courts, even if the courts are to be shared with other sports, and that a number of courts should be dedicated tennis only courts. This is a tennis centre and has been for decades. It was a successful one, even when somewhat run-down, but it was abandoned by Bayside Council some time ago and allowed to become completely derelict. It has been vandalised and abandoned to the point of being unplayable and unusable. If Bayside Council had looked after and maintained the courts properly, especially with the monies that Kevin Coleman was able to give back to Bayside Council after managing the courts for 2+ years on a volunteer basis , we would not be in this dire position now. In addition, the courts could have been used throughout the COVID-19 lockdowns, as tennis was one of the few sports that could be played. You can read some background here and here . Another significant point is that a flexi-cushion surface should not be installed, or at least not on all courts. The reason for this is that the flexi-cushion surface is unsuitable for those who have had knee and/or hip replacements and for our more senior players. ​ One of the sports suggested by Bayside Council to be played on the courts is netball - there are 15 asphalt and 17 grass courts that have been newly refurbished on West Botany Street, Rockdale, only minutes from Hawthorne Street. The St George District Netball Association, which leases the courts from Council, secured $1 million for the upgrade. The 15 netball hard courts were resurfaced, and new netball rings and fencing installed. The works were completed only last year. Do they really need more netball courts at Hawthorne Street? If any additional salient points come to light please feel free to share them via our Facebook page in order to strengthen the case for the prioritisation of tennis or at the very least, for there to be no reduction in the number of courts tat tennis can be played on. Hopefully, we can do enough to ensure the future of tennis in the area by ensuring the court upgrade meets the needs of the tennis community, but your feedback is key to achieving this. Please feel free to share the survey as widely as possible and especially to tennis contacts and tennis pages/groups. Our understanding, and our concern, is that a significant number of people support the multi-sport use of the courts without understanding or caring about the ramifications for tennis, especially the long-term negative impacts, so please take the few minutes required to complete the survey . Feedback must be submitted by Monday 15 August . ​ With sincere thanks, Illawarra Suburbs Lawn Tennis Association - Junior Branch Committee

  • Welcome Back to Summer Comp 2022 | ISLTA Junior Branch

    WELCOME BACK TO THE SUMMER COMP FOR 2022 ​ We are delighted that the Summer Comp 2022 will recommence this Saturday 5 February and we wish all players, families and coaches a warm welcome back. ​ The Tennis NSW Board - and therefore ISLTA Junior Branch - has updated the participation guidelines by removing the requirement for mandatory COVID-19 vaccination from Tuesday 1 February 2022, as follows: ​ People are no longer required to be fully vaccinated or carry vaccination or exemption evidence; Face masks are required indoors when not participating in exercise. ​ To limit the risk of spreading the virus, when playing, we ask that players continue not to shake hands, high five or fist bump but to tap racquets instead. ​ Everyone should try to social-distance and to use sanitiser or wash hands as often as practical. ​ Players who have tested positive to COVID-19 with a PCR or rapid antigen test within the last seven (7) days and/or who are feeling unwell should NOT play and must follow current NSW Health advice: you must isolate immediately for seven (7) days. Your household must also isolate for seven (7) days. If you have a sore throat, runny nose, cough or shortness of breath after seven (7) days, please remain in isolation until 24 hours after your symptoms have resolved. ​ Players/teams should try to find a replacement as soon as possible (refer to the Rule Book or Contacts page). If unable to find a replacement please contact the opposing team as soon as possible to advise of your inability to play. Any venue in NSW (including tennis venues) retains the right to enforce mandatory vaccination at its premises. Therefore, individual tennis venues are permitted to continue to require proof of vaccination for entry to their premises if they choose to do so; this should be respected by patrons at those venues. Both Tennis NSW and ISLTA Junior Branch continue to strongly encourage all players and their families to be fully vaccinated and to receive a booster when eligible to do so. Wishing everyone a most enjoyable first week back. Illawarra Suburbs Lawn Tennis Association - Junior Branch Committee ​
