Club & Court Hire

The courts and club rooms can be hired out for private functions at very competitive rates. We have been hired out in the past by companies to run team building events and birthday celebrations.

The courts can be hired out by non-members for casual tennis play when there is someone at the club.

Members are more than welcome to bring along guests.

Fees for court usage are $10 per person per hour without Court Lights and $15 per person per hour with Court lights. After 2 visits we encourage all guests to become members. Please place the monies in the slot located at the entrance of the Clubhouse. Your support to the club is greatly appreciated.


Wishing you all a great rest of the Summer Season.
