Social Gala Tennis at the Pines

Organised social tennis is available on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings during school terms in our Gala social competitions. New and current players are most welcome.


Gala is a great night of social tennis for players of all standards and ages.  It commences at 7:00pm or 7:30pm depending on the competition and there is supper. Players and their opponents are graded so that matches are socially competitive and a lot of fun.


Teams are organised prior to the term commencing, however if you have missed out this term you can always come down for a try out or put your name down as a reserve.

If you would like to play or be a reserve please contact:


Tuesday night – Geoff Rhodes

Wednesday night – Marian or Gerry Allen
