VIC - Open Court Tennis Program (Feb & March)

February 2, 2020

Get Your Racquet On is launching during the 2020 Australian Summer of Tennis. It is an opportunity for adults to come and try, or to re-discover the joy of tennis with no commitments. We will be hosting “open court” sessions every Sunday evening over two months, which are a series of different activities aimed at discovering or re-discovering the joy of tennis.

You are invited to come along to one or multiple sessions and enjoy the fun. You do not need to bring any equipment with you (we will provide everything), all you need to do is wear comfortable clothes and sneakers. We will be providing a light snack and a drink, and there will be plenty of time to socialise.

Everyone is welcome to these sessions, which will be deaf (Auslan) and hard of hearing friendly. These events are designed to be sociable, so feel free to come by yourself, or to bring some friends and family members. 

Our venues are Doncaster Tennis Club, and Bundoora Tennis Club, dates as follows:

  • Sunday 9th Feb - Doncaster Tennis Club, 5:30pm - 7:00pm
  • Sunday 16th Feb - Bundoora Tennis Club, 5:30pm - 7:00pm
