Weekend Social Tennis  

 

 

 

All social afternoons are about doubles play and making sure that everyone has a chance to play, meet other players and have some enjoyable tennis.

 

Please note that the minimum requirement to play at the social tennis afternoons is a 2.5 ranking. 

 

Social tennis is every Saturday and Sunday afternoon from 1.30pm  to 5pm. Please check the club calendar as there may be some tournaments or league matches scheduled which have priority. 

 

From 1.30pm  to 3.30pm on Saturdays social play will be arranged by emailing our social director.  You will need to register via email, and include your name, phone number and ranking.  A general email is sent out to all members when registration opens.

 

On Saturday afternoons tea and cookies will be served at 2.30.  A donation or $3 for this would be appreciated.  Please note that due to Covid, and the closure of the upstairs level of the clubhouse, afternoon tea is not being served.  Members will be advised when this resumes. 

 

After 3.30, players may make their own foursomes and continue to play the 1/2 hour segments if there are people waiting.  

 

For those foursomes who arrive at 2.30 or later, they will wait until there is a free court before beginning their game.  Once again, if there are people waiting, the play segments will be a 1/2 hour.  If no one is waiting, continue playing and have fun.  


Sunday social play is from 1.30  – 5.00 by hanging rackets on the hooks by court 3. This is not organized by a “host”.
Afternoon tea is not served on Sundays. However, supplies are always in the clubhouse should anyone want to make tea.
From 1.30 to 5.00 anyone at the club may arrange their own games, with late arrivals waiting until there is a free court.
Doubles play only while there are people waiting to play.  There must be 4 people to claim a court.
The play period is ½ hour if there are people waiting.  If not, continue playing and enjoy your games.
 


Please note the club does not supply balls for social tennis either Saturday or Sunday.
