Sunday social tennis

Each Sunday we run a free social hit at the club, which is open to both members and non-members*.

Social starts at 9:30 and runs until 12:30. We rotate sets of doubles across 3 courts (courts 4,5 and 6) to ensure everyone gets a chance to have a hit.

  • All levels welcome.
  • BYO tennis racquet.

Please also note:

  • It is an informal gathering and there is no guarantee of attendees.
  • A volunteer is sometimes in attendance to help organise but not always.
  • If all 3 court are full you may have to wait till a set is completed.
  • If courts are not fully occupied, ask if you can join in.
  • Some Sundays you may play four games and swap, other Sundays you may play six games before swapping.
  • There is an expectation that you will play with a variation of players.

*Non-members have a limit of 4 sessions. We welcome you to trial the club and meet other players to decide if our club is a good fit for you.
