Organised Social Play

Scarborough Tennis Club Members can take advantage of their free organised social play all year round (weather permitting).  Weekend social tennis is followed by socialising over drinks from the club bar. Without volunteers, social tennis wouldn't run so please see how this works here.

Times

  • Tuesday    9:30am – 12:30pm
  • Saturday   1:00pm – 5:30pm
  • Sunday     1:30pm – 5:00pm

Note: Organised social play is generally not organised on public holidays.

Format

All organised social play is doubles play – both mixed and same sex.  Sets last for 30 mins each, so over the course of an afternoon you get to play with many different people. All members are allocated a membership number and a playing grade which is based on Tennis West’s recommendations for classifying players abilities in a social environment. We use a computer system (Perfect Match) to organise social sets with the emphasis on balancing the doubles teams so that all players get good quality tennis with a range of players.

Other social member benefits..

In addition to the regular social days we also provide throughout the season:

  • Twilight Tennis
  • Club Tournaments: Ranging from fun events and Handicap Tournaments through to the annual Club Championships
  • Visits to other clubs: Scarborough traditionally has a large contingent of players who go to country based tournaments like Busselton, Geraldton and Bridgetown as well as visiting many metropolitan clubs.

Friday morning social tennis ( Visitors welcome )

We offer a Friday morning social tennis to cater for all you busy mums who deserve the chance of an hour and half’s tennis on a Friday morning. Led by one of the senior tennis professionals,  Andrea Cooper, the ladies group is a mix of fun, learning and fitness. This is our only social tennis open to the public and gives non members an opportunity for some fun social tennis on the Scarborough Tennis courts.
