Saturdays - members' tennis from 1.00pm to 5.00pm

Tuesdays - members' tennis from 1.00pm to 5.00pm

Members' tennis commences at 1.00pm however, people wander in and come and go throughout the afternoon depending on what arrangements and commitments they have.

On both of these afternoons, 8 games are played swapping ends after 4 games.  These can be mens, ladies or mixed sets depending on who is available to play.

There are various standards of tennis and we swap around trying to give everyone a game with people their standard and higher and lower than their standard.  Most people who spend the afternoon at the Club can play about 5 sets depending on the amount of time they need off the court.

On Saturdays we have 6 courts and a duty officer who will put sets on and provide afternoon tea.  This member also plays tennis during the afternoon so will delegate to another member to continue organising sets.

On Tuesdays we have 3 courts to play on and the people attending sort themselves to play sets together guided by John Miller.

If you are a member and you would like to bring a guest along to play tennis during either of these times, the fee is $10 per visitor.  Family and friends are always welcome on and off the court.
