Season 2, 2020 Fixtures to Commence

GBJT Season 2, 2020 tennis fixtures will recommence on Saturday 8 August at UQ (2pm to 5pm) and QTC (230pm to 530pm).  Team draws and instructions will be emailed out to Players and Parents on Monday 3 August!  We look forward to welcoming everyone to GBJT junior fixtures.

GBJT Fixtures to Recommence

GBJT tennis fixtures will recommence (subject to Government approval) for Season 2 on Saturday 8 August 2020.  Grading day for new players will be held on Sunday 26 July, 2020 from 3pm to 5pm at the Queensland Tennis Centre.  We look forward to welcoming everyone back to GBJT tennis fixtures. 

GBJT Fixtures

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

The AGM for GBJT will be held at 3.30pm on Saturday 21 March at UQ Tennis Centre.  Anyone wishing to attend is welcome.

GBJT Tennis Fixtures Cancelled - Coronavirus (COVID-19)

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.

We realise this may cause inconvenience in the short-term however, our objective is ensuring our community remains healthy and strong.

We will continue to keep you updated and thank you for your cooperation during this difficult time for all of us.
