In addition there is a smaller satellite clubhouse which includes washroom and kitchen facilities. The Club has about 350 members, but you don’t have to be a member to hire a court. Courts are available for hire (day and night) – members receive a discount on the normal hourly hire rate.

The Club is the focal point for several large tournaments held each year with the main tournaments being the Annual Gold Coast Seniors Tennis Tournament held on the May long weekend and the Queensland State Seniors Tennis Championships held in July each year. Both tournaments attract entries from around Australia and some from overseas. The Australian Seniors Titles are held at the complex approximately every 4-5 years (last held in January 2010). In addition there is the Totally Teeth JDS in September each year, the Australian Universities Sports championships held in September every 2nd year and the Pan Pacific Masters Games Tennis championships held in November every 2nd year.

Anyone over the age of 35 years is eligible to join the Club. The membership fee is set by the Management Committee each year and is currently $76.00. This includes Tennis Queensland affiliation and insurance cover. Junior and Associate membership is available on request.To keep members up-to-date, the Club produces a quarterly newsletter (see under “Newsletter” on this website) which is also emailed out to Members and hard copies are on display at the Clubhouse. New members are issued with a leaflet (with ‘frig magnet) setting out the times when organised tennis is held at the Club. From time to time Social Functions are held at the Clubhouse (eg Trivia nights, Xmas parties, BBQs etc). So make sure we have your correct email address so that you will hear about these activities.

The Club takes pride in offering a welcoming and friendly atmosphere and has proven to be a great place for developing friendships and a social outlet. Moreover, the Gold Coast has established itself as a growth area for tennis.
