Social tennis

Social tennis sessions are a great opportunity to meet other players. During social tennis, doubles (ladies, mens or mixed),  takes priority over singles. Members organise themselves into fours and play one set before mixing in with others waiting. On Saturday afternoons when it can be busy, our head coach supervises play.


Monday and Wednesday:  6.30 to 10pm

Saturday:                                2.00 to 6.30pm

Monday night is primarily for improvers and intermediates, although other members are welcome to participate. Monday nights are a good opportunity for beginners who have completed a coaching program to enjoy doubles play.


Wednesday night is for intermediate and advanced playe. During the summer months we hold regular DIY barbecues after play has finished.


Saturday afternoon is open to all members except beginners.  Afternoon tea with homemade cakes is a highlight of these afternoons for many people.


Rules for social tennis

These simple rules help to ensure that all members enjoy their social tennis:


  • Players should play one tie break set. On Saturdays, we play sudden death at deuce.

  • On Saturdays or whenever courts are full and several members are waiting, the tie break should be played at 5 all.

  • Members should make up balanced fours of similar playing  standards. On Saturdays the head coach organises play.

  • Members who have been sitting out waiting for a game have priority over members who have just arrived.
