Return to Tennis in Africa

The Confederation of African Tennis (CAT) is  publishing a ‘State of Tennis’ report outlining the possibilities to play tennis as well as the recommendations across all African National Associations Members to the CAT

This page will be updated weekly as National Associations gradually permit a return to the courts following the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The aim is to keep nations as updated as possible and to share information and best practises which may assist federations in their planning as they become fully operational again.

As on 14/09/2020,

·        Play is currently possible in 34 African countries:

o       Five (5) nations in North Africa, under certain restrictions (Tunisia, Libya, Algeria, Egypt and Morocco).

o       Five (5) nations in East Africa, under certain restrictions (Burundi, Tanzania, Rwanda, Seychelles and Comoros).

o       Twelve (12) nations in Southern Africa, under certain restrictions (Angola, Mozambique, Botswana, Eswatini, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritus, Reunion, Namibia, Zambia, South Africa & Zambia)
