Tennis

Tennis activities for everyone

Our four astroturf (artificial grass) tennis courts were resurfaced in 2019 and are well-used by our growing tennis community. We have tennis activities and events for all ages, abilities and interests.

Come and hit tennis balls with us!

What we do

Social club days

We run three social club sessions during the spring and summer season. Great fun for for young and old, beginners and advanced.

  • 2-4pm Sundays
  • 6.30-8.30pm Wednesdays
  • 9.30-11.30am Fridays (followed by morning tea, upstairs in the clubrooms)

All games organised for you — very soclal doubles and mixed doubles.

Members of the public are very welcome to attend two sessions for free to see if they might like to join the club.

Ladders

We run fun and social tennis ladders to give members a taste of competitive tennis in a relaxed setting and as an easy way to meet new players to hit balls with.
