These are the CURRENT requirements as at the date you receive this email.


If these change you will be notified.

It is a Victorian Government requirement that all competitors, spectators and officials are fully vaccinated to attend the tournament.

Fully vaccinated means someone who:

Vaccination requirements apply to everyone aged over 12 years and two months, unless you have a valid medical exemption from an authorised medical practitioner.

All competitors will receive a ticket/entry pass by email. They must print it out and bring to the tournament and hand in at entry and show proof of their vaccination status.
