The Central Wimmera Tennis Association is aiming to get their season underway on November 6, after COVID-19 restrictions scuppered their original plans to begin on October 9.
The return date is in line with the Government's roadmap out of lockdown and CWTA president Jeremy Quast is hopeful that everything goes to plan.
"If the roadmap changes we'll have to change our dates, but we're sending draws out to start on the 6th of November," Quast said.
"We've lost four rounds of tennis."
Registration numbers are still as they normally would be according to Quast, however, the Association has picked up another "team or two" in the juniors.
"Just having the extended break clubs were able to get some extra players that were on the fence about whether they would play or not," he said.
In what is great news for junior tennis development in the region, the league has been able to create a new section in the juniors and develop a pathway, so players and parents are aware of how they can progress.
"Now we have seven sections; an Opens and Section One right through to Section Six," Quast said.
"We've also developed a pathway for the matchplay - so Section six you start off at entry-level and then there's a pathway to Section Five, a pathway to Section Four..."
"Every single parent of a child that starts off in Section Six will get a copy of the pathway, so they understand the development; what their child needs to do coaching-wise, playing-wise and where they go at what stage and what's required at that stage too.
"Each stage is a little bit different."
Quast also made mention that the Horsham lawn grass courts are in terrific shape ahead of the inter-regional tennis tournament in January.
"The lawn grass courts are in the best condition they've been in for probably ten to 15 years," he said.
"It's a major event and the courts need to be up to a very good standard for that event to be held."
