Belconnen Tennis Club

Social Tennis

Belconnen Tennis Club is well known as one of the most socially active tennis clubs in Canberra. Social tennis is very popular with both members and visitors.

Organised Social Tennis

Are you new to Canberra or the area? Social tennis is the perfect setting to get involved and meet new friends whilst keeping fit and having fun.

Members and visitors (adults and mature juniors) are invited to join our regular organised social tennis sessions.  Simply come along and introduce yourself to the social coordinator.  We cater for a range of capabilities.  Players should, however, be able to maintain rallies, keep the score and know the rules of tennis. A small fee to cover costs is payable.

No bookings required.

If you are a beginner or wish to improve your tennis skills, our Club coach may be contacted regarding lessons.
