About Us

Governance

KTC is an incorporated association, and is managed by an elected committee. All Members are encouraged to consider serving on the committee at some stage in their KTC journey.

We are proud to say our new Rules have been lodged and are in effect as of 19 July 2017.

In conjunction, we revised our membership categories and wrote a Member and Player Policy, which has a lot of useful information in it, including explaining the new categories and the reasons for them, and also many practical tips for players at KTC.

History

The Kardinya Tennis Club was formed in 1982 with the vision of providing tennis to all people in the community.  Since the opening of the club, membership has fluctuated, with the club hosting some 160 members in the early eighties to lesser numbers by 2007, when the committee determined to rebuild the club.  We aimed to increase the range and depth of services and programs offered to current and potential members, and to provide first rate facilities and coaching.

Since then the club has installed new floodlights and resurfaced seven of the nine courts, with the help of grants from the Melville City Council and Lotteries West. We began sharing the Morris Buzacott club rooms, built in 1993/4, with the CBC Football Club, and later the Kardinya junior football and t-ball clubs. We became affiliated with Tennis West, contracted Tom Moore as club coach, and entered our first junior pennant teams in 2008.

Now in 2017, thanks to the foresight and determination of club members ten years ago and since, memberships have increased and the junior program is powering. Young people who joined the club as junior players are now coaching and some play in a senior pennant team together. See if you recognise any of these young players… hint – all three have now served on our committee.
