Court Usage

For Information regarding times when social tennis is available or when courts may be free for you to hit socially with your own group, click on Whats On At Riverside tab.

Sharing Courts

We would like to remind members to please observe our longstanding policy which states that any courts which are not being used for coaching, pennant play, or designated Riverside Tennis Club social timeslots, should be shared equally by members wishing to play socially.

If you arrive and there are no free courts, let the players who are playing in their own group, on the free courts, know that you would also like to play socially, and then upon their invitation either join them to fill up the courts, or take a seat and wait for them to play one more set after you have approached them. When they have completed their one set, you are entitled to use the court to play one set while they wait, and so on.

If you are arriving early for a designated Riverside Tennis Club social timeslot, fill up all the empty courts fully before approaching any group who are already having a social hit amongst themselves. When the designated Riverside Tennis Club social timeslot begins, those groups are obliged to join in with all social timeslot players.


Jason Fletcher now conducts coaching at our club throughout the week.  Please click on the coaching tab on this page to see more deatials. Jason can be contacted on 0437 338 518 for more information regarding his program options.

Court Maintenance

Members please make the effort, if you are physically able, to give the court brush a push around when you are finished if nobody else is waiting to use the court. This will stop sandy areas forming and causing the courts to be slippery. It will also stop moss getting an opportunity to grow. For this reason, we still need to sweep during the winter months even though the courts are settled and not slippery. Sweep in a continuous motion across both courts from one fence to the other.
