With a history dating back almost 130 years, Healesville Tennis Club is working hard to ensure tennis plays an active role in community sport in Healesville.
With 10 courts, six at Queen’s Park and four at the Don Road Sporting Complex, the club caters for club members, locals and visitors who just want to have a casual hit.
On Monday, 27 March, the club will host its Annual Ladies’ Tennis Chicken and Bubbles Round Robin at the beautiful Queen’s Park courts.
The tournament is suitable for all ages and standards, including beginners, and is a great way to experience social tennis … and a great lunch.
A free all-inclusive program over four Sunday morning sessions starts on Sunday, 2 April at 11am for anyone interested in trying the sport – all abilities, all ages … everyone!
On Monday 1 May, a Beginner Mums/Ladies Program starts over five weeks with free childcare.
The club is currently running the Community Hot Shot program, a six-week, after school family tennis program aimed at families with children four to 12 years old.
Club president Kathy Cameron said the club is very keen to see more people enjoying the game and the club’s excellent facilities and is encouraging women to revisit their love of the game, or discover for the first time just how much fun tennis can be by coming along to any or all of the programs.
HTC regularly runs formal social games which are suitable for beginners and more experienced players and for all ages on Tuesday morning and evening, with veterans encouraged to have a hit, and a Wednesday morning ladies’ social.
Competition tennis is played on Saturdays for juniors and seniors, with midweek ladies competition on Tuesdays.
