Round 1 matches to be played this weekend

Round 1 matches to be played this weekend

The changes to restrictions announced by the State Government today allow competition tennis to resume. We are therefore pleased to advise that the NSJTA Season 2 competition will commence this weekend — Friday 30 and Saturday 31 July 2021.

Based on feedback from clubs, we have postponed the start of the season and rescheduled matches so hopefully all 14 rounds can still be played. Matches this weekend will be the Round 1 matches listed on the original fixture.

We have added two additional weekends to make up for the two weeks the season was delayed.
• Matches will now be played on the first weekend of the September school holidays (Friday 17 and Saturday 18 September 2021).
• The end of the season has been pushed back by one week. Grand Finals will now be played on Friday 3 and Saturday 4 December 2021 and the Spare Finals weekend is Friday 10 and Saturday 11 December 2021.

An updated fixture can be downloaded here. The dates have been updated on page 6. The A Reserve 2 Boys Friday six-team draw fixture and League Manager will be updated shortly.

The Committee has decided that no further changes will be made to this fixture. In the unfortunate event that matches are affected by future lockdowns, the matches will be treated as washouts and the points split between the two teams.

We remind everyone to ensure they comply with the NSJTA COVID‐Safe competition guidelines. In addition to those requirements, under current restrictions no spectators are allowed. Only the minimum number of people required for the competition are permitted at venues (people necessary for the competition such as umpires, parents and guardians are allowed).
