Social Tennis

Organised social tennis takes place on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 16h00 and Saturday afternoons from 14h00. During this time no private games are permitted as the objective is to encourage members to meet and play with other members of the club. Balls are provided and the bar is open during this time.

Social Mid-Week Players have access to the courts on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings between 08H00 to 12H00.

The courts  are generally used as follows:

  • Ladies – Tuesday and Thursdays between 08H00 to 13H00.
  • The Men’s Veterans section (for over 50) play on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 13h00 until 16h30

General

Members or visitors who play during the arranged social times are expected to fit in with the group arrangements at the time. Private social play can be arranged at other times depending on the availability of courts.  Members and visitors must provide their own balls when organising private games.

Junior & Student members are welcome to join in with general social play on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday afternoons. Bookings can also be made outside of these times.

League Tennis normally takes place from February to April and August to November. During this time the courts are reserved for league practice on Tuesdays and Thursdays  from 16h00 and for league matches on Saturday afternoons from 13h00. Although every effort is made to make one court available for social play on Saturday, this is not always possible.

Our club has also engaged the services of a professional and extremely experienced coach, Kazeem Rasaki (Edge Tennis Academy). If you are interested in being coached, please feel free to contact him on 073 499 4149 to arrange private or group coaching sessions.

Court bookings are only open to active members. Visitors are welcome to visit the club at any time, but members need to be present to grant access. A fee of R50 will be charged for visitors.
