Tennis Manitoba has been made aware of the community’s intent for re-designation of our sport and have been accordingly appointed to bring forward a petition to the Province of Manitoba based on facts regarding safe tennis play during COVID-19. Our tennis community strongly believes tennis should not be grouped with all sports and recreational activities therefore being forced to shut down during this time.
We are extremely mindful of the worldwide pandemic that continues to affect Manitoba. By no means is the tennis community looking to get around the rules, but with the sport being arguably the safest sport out there, the option to play should be available. Our sport provides a healthy solution that is beneficial for the physical and mental well-being of those who play.
You can find the petition here.
