Local tennis clubs in South Africa have received a major boost with the news that they can now host matches and events again.

That was confirmed by Tennis SA on their official Twitter account on Wednesday.  

"All categories of club tennis players and coaching can return with immediate effect," the statement read. 

"Only organised tennis for club, social and tournament/league players is permitted via the club booking system.

"No social gatherings allowed before or after tennis."

All players, coaches and tennis clubs would obviously have to comply with the coronavirus safety measures that have been laid out by Tennis SA and national government.
