Dear Players and Parents
In the interests of our players, parents and the broader community, GBJT will suspend our weekly junior fixture program for the next two Saturdays (21/03 and 28/03) which takes us up to school holidays!
This decision is not made lightly and is based on many factors including the advice received to date from Tennis Australia and Tennis Queensland, decisions made by other tennis and major sporting groups (GPS and CaSSSA school sports, cricket, netball, football, rugby, etc) in Queensland and across Australia, as well as the ongoing Governmental advice to the community.
Part of this advice is the Governments recommendations on social distancing and hygiene in helping slow the spread of this event which is important and we all have a role to play in helping support the interests of the good health and wellbeing of not only our tennis community but our community as a whole.
As you will appreciate, this is a complex and daily changing situation and we believe our decision is in line with community expectations. We will continue to update on a regular basis as matters develop and further guidance is provided to sporting groups such as ours.
Kind regards, Peter and Peta
GBJT Annual General Meeting

GBJT Tennis Fixtures Cancelled - Coronavirus (COVID-19)
14 Mar 2020
Following a directive issued by Tennis Australia late last night, GBJT as a Member Association will follow this advice and therefore GBJT Tennis Fixtures will be cancelled today. We apologise for any inconvience this may cause but ensuring the wellbeing of our tennis and broader community is of great importance to GBJT and the tennis community as a whole. We will update everyone in the coming week about our fixture program.
Statement from Tennis Australia and its Member Associations - All Tennis operated events, competitions and tournaments postponed until further notice.
Effective immediately Tennis Australia and its Member Associations are postponing all Tennis operated events, competitions and tournaments until further notice.
Tennis has made the decision to take further precautions in the interest of the health and wellbeing of our community.
Our goal is to avoid bringing crowds together in order to help contain the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) and minimise the inevitable strain on our healthcare system.
This decision is based on expert medical advice and is in line with the recommendations of the global tennis community.
