The equipment is modified to suit the size of the courts including the size and compression of the balls and the length of the racquets.

 

Equipment Hire - Free

You are welcome to bring your own equipment but we certainly do not expect you to have it all. You can borrow all the equipment you need (deposit required). If you love it and want to take up a membership you can also buy any equipment you need from us so you can play at your leisure.

 

Memberships Available - $40/year...!!

If you love the Tennis Playground you can get a membership to use the facility at your leisure 7 days a week, at anytime during daylight hours (Coaching and competition has priority). It is only $40 for individual or $80 for the whole family.
To access the facility on days other than Sunday you can also get your own key (one off $40 deposit required)

 

Hot Shots Competition

On Saturday and Sunday morning Tennis Playground competes in inter-club Hot Shots competitions in the Eastern Region Junior Tennis Association (ERT). There are Red Ball, Orange Ball and Green Ball sections. Contact us if you are interested in joining a team or would like more information.
