Extreme Weather – 2020 DRAFT

GDTA/GWTC is required to adhere to Tennis Australia’s Extreme Weather Policy, which took effect on the 25th November 2019.
GDTA has drafted an interim operational process for playing in extreme weather conditions which should be followed for the remainder of the season.

  • If BOM website at 6am indicates that the expected temperature for the day is 37° or higher, all GDTA/GWTC run matches, both junior and seniors are cancelled.
  • If matches are in progress and the temperature is thought to have risen to 38° or above (36° for juniors), a venue coordinator, club or team captain/manager is responsible to access this website: , and to read the ambient temperature [AT] in Kent Town. If:-

1) that temperature shows 36° or higher junior and wheel chair matches are suspended until conditions ease and agreement is reached to continue or to abandon the match.

2) that temperature shows 38° or higher, senior matches are suspended until conditions ease and agreement is reached to continue or to abandon the match.

  • In the case of thunderstorms and lightning, players should move away from the court and seek shelter when the time between a lightning flash and thunder is less than 30 seconds. Play can resume when the threat has passed, eg when the time between lightning flash and thunder is greater than 30 seconds.
  • Where there are strong winds or smoky conditions etc which present unacceptable risks to players, common sense should prevail and play be suspended until conditions ease and agreement is reached to continue or to abandon the match.
