Mums & Tots Program 

The program is designed to give Mums (&Dads) in the local area an opportunity to get active by playing tennis and socializing. This program is open to players of all standards from absolute beginners through to those who have played tennis previously and would like to get back into the game. The program promotes fun, fitness and health benefits of tennis in a non-competitive environment.

For those Participants with young children there is also a Tiny Tots program. The Tiny Tots class runs at the same time as the Mums classes which allows parents to participate along with their children without having to worry about childcare.


Open Court Sessions

Open Court Sessions is a new and fun way to fit a casual hit into your busy lifestyle. It is tennis with a modern twist; celebrating tennis through fresh, new game formats. With the focus on the social side being as important as the tennis itself, Open Court Sessions is a perfect way to stay active while catching up with your friends, family and work mates. Each session is run by enthusiastic hosts who keep the range of fun activities flowing both on and off the court.

The 90 minute session aims to have participants embracing casual tennis in a relaxed format. The evening is made up of two parts; 30 minutes off-court with food and drinks followed by 60 minutes on-court time for swinging, slamming and smiling, with a great soundtrack pumping through the evening.
