If you are not a current financial member please be advised that your insurance under Tennis Victoria will not be active and you will not be covered while you are playing anywhere.

With the increase in postage costs we can no longer afford to send communication via snail mail please read the emails we send.

A list of current financial members will be available near the phone and updated as needed.

Members may obtain a key to the courts from the Treasurer on payment of $20. $10 will be refunded on return of the key. Members may invite friends or family to play on the courts when free, usually on Sundays and weekdays before 4pm. The cost of a non-member to play is $5 per session. Juniors are free. We encourage all visitors to become members of the club. Members using the courts for casual play should be reminded to wear the correct footwear and make sure the courts are bagged and watered after play.
