In the early 1900’s tennis enthusiasts in the town and holiday makers were eager to have tennis courts to explore their talents and enthusiasm for the game.
Torquay Improvement Association provided two courts in Beales Street behind their hall. The block was purchased for 25 shillings per foot. A deposit of 50 Pounds was paid and the remainder to come within the next three years. Further blocks were purchased at a later date for future extension if the demand warranted it for tennis.
On 16th March 1918, Torquay tennis Club first committee was formed as a sub committee to the Torquay Improvement Association.
By 1933 tennis was proving very popular having 4 good quality courts in Torquay. The club along with neighbouring towns formed Coast Tennis Association.
By 1971 Torquay Tennis Club undertook to manage the courts which involved paying rates and maintenances.
In 1982, the club relocated to its current address in spring Creek Reserve with four asphalt courts and clubrooms all fully funded by the club, through fundraising by dedicated members.
Demand for courts increased over time and two additional courts were constructed.
In 2000, Torquay Tennis Club received funding from Surf Coast Shire and Sport & Recreation Victoria to resurface 4 asphalt courts to synthetic grass courts and installation of lighting to two of them. The club then proceeded to put lighting on two other synthetic courts through own funds generated from night competition and increased memberships.
In Septemebr 2010 the club received additional grant to resurface the two remaining asphalt courts to synthetic grass and the installation of lighting.
