Social Tennis – All Welcome

You’re more than welcome to gather your friends or family, Book a Court, and play together regularly or occasionally. If you play regularly, we encourage you to join our Club.

Daytime Social Tennis

This is played at the Club every Wednesday from 1 – 3 pm. Players include seniors, pensioners, retirees and those who are working from home and want to take some time out.

 

Members can just turn up on the day for a friendly game or you can contact Kerry Scarlett on:

0414 292 150 or kscarlett@internode.on.net

Members Evening Social ‘Gala’ Tennis

Members and ‘newbies’ are most welcome to join our organised social tennis on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings during school terms in our Gala social competition nights!

 

Gala is a fun night of social tennis for players of all standards and ages.  It starts at 7pm or 7.30pm depending on the competition. Wednesday nights are perfect for those who are either new to the game or returning to tennis after some time away. You can join Gala at any time during the term. There is supper too (covid allowing). Players and their opponents are graded so that matches are socially competitive. Come along to try out playing and see if you want to play regularly – no obligation to become a member at this point.

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