WAGGA Tennis Association has made the decision to postpone all of its competitions, effective immediately.
The association, along with Southern Sports Academy, have also closed Jim Elphick Tennis Centre from any social tennis gatherings until further notice.
The two organisations made the joint announcement on Wednesday, following advice from health authorities.
"In line with the ever changing restrictions concerning the COVID-19 virus, the SSA-WWTA have made the call and decided to postpone all tennis comps, including our Thursday singles, from today," the statement read.
"Stay safe everyone and we hope to see you all back on court as soon as possible."
The facility is still open for residents to utilise for personal use and can be done so through the following Book-a-Court system at play.tennis.com.au/court-hire/WaggaWaggaTennisAssociation
