Do you have a Question?
A list of frequently asked questions to help you understand how it works.
How do I access the courts?
A gate key is available for a nominal fee, which will be refunded when the key is returned.
Can I bring a friend that is not a member?
You may invite 4 visitors per year. The visitor’s name is to be written in the book and FEES PAID PRIOR to using the facilities. THE FEE IS PER PERSON, PER DAY – flat rate whether playing for one hour or more.
Visitors Book is located in the filing cabinet under the kitchen window. The black fee safe is located on the ground in the corner under the kitchen window. Anyone caught abusing this rule will have to pay double the fee for the first offence, and any subsequent offence may result in termination of membership. Night tennis visitors are required to pay a visitors fee, plus the cost of the lights.
Can I use the lights to play Tennis during the evening?
Members must pay to use the lights at night.
The cost for lights is $8/$10 per hour depending on which courts you use.
You must bring $2 coins for the coin machine to operate the lights, and you must put in an hours worth to start the lights up. You can extend the time by adding additional coins at any time, but you must do this before the lights go off. There is a 10 minute warning light on all courts before lights go out. You cannot restart the lights once they have gone out.
Courts 1-3 will automatically switch off at 10.30pm.
Courts 5-6 will automatically switch off at 10pm. Monday – Thursday, and 9pm Friday – Sunday.
Cars must be parked inside the Club car park, not in the street.
How do I look after the tennis courts?
Classic Clay courts 1, 2, & 3 are to be bagged after each set and at the end of play.
Courts 4, 5 & 6 are sand filled synthetic grass courts and do not need bagging.
No chewing of gum on any of the tennis courts.
Please remove any rubbish from the court when leaving.
Do not take chairs onto courts or move benches already provided.
What is a Tennis Victoria Player Registration Membership?

Club organized social events
The Club runs a number of functions during the year that we encourage all members to attend. These functions are a great way to meet other members and to enjoy yourself in the informal atmosphere of the Club. Information on these events can be found on the notice boards at the club, or on the website under News & Events.
Etiquette on the court
Good sportsmanship must prevail at all times. Bad language and misbehaviour will not be tolerated.
Members may play in the Club’s Annual Club Championships.
Coaching, competition tennis and organized social events take precedence over social play. During hours of social play, doubles takes precedence over singles play, and the use of a court is limited to half an hour when other members are waiting. This must be strictly adhered to.
