MORE INFORMATION regarding our OPEN COURT - Twilight Sessions

These sessions are held each Friday evening 5:15 - 7:45 pm at Tennis Seniors SA and are aimed at providing an opportunity for adults 25+ to come out and try, or to re-discover the joy of tennis with no commitments.

We are seeking to grow our club by encouraging current members to bring out their friends and relatives, and for local community members, and those who work nearby, or regularly pass our centre, to come out and play!

Try it out!     Encourage others!     Give it a go!

Each session costs only $5 per person and you do not need to be a member of the club to join in.

We look forward to seeing you at our club!

FUTURE PLANS

We are seeking for more members to act as hosts for our Open Court - Twilight Sessions and to have the bar open, with sessions being extended to 8.30pm. However, we need volunteers! If you are RSA trained or willing to undertake the training please let us know.


NEW PLAYERS get 3 FREE  Social Play sessions in a TSSA Tennis Year (1 October to 30 September), before being required to pay the TSSA Membership Fee + TSSA Player’s Fee of $100, or a one-off reduced fee of $75 if  joining after the commencement of a calendar year ($50  if joining after 1 March). Regular players are required to annually pay the fees before the 1st November each year. 

We are looking to offer new session times and if you want to become involved OR know of a group wanting to play tennis then contact our TSSA Secretary | Roger SANDERSON | 0400 773 621 | secretarytennisseniorssa@gmail.com |

We look forward to seeing you out and playing tennis!


MANAGING CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) 

  • A reminder that anyone entering our centre who has a smartphone are required to use the mySA GOV app on their phone  and our QR code to undertake the SA Government prescribed COVID SAfe Check-In
  • If you do not have a smartphone then you are required to place your name, phone number and time that you entered the centre on a list for that particular session
  • Please note that the check-in using your smartphone or the check-in  list provided for that session, is in addition to the normal sign-in processes that we require for Social Play Sessions
  • COVID SAfe Check-In enables SA Health to quickly contact others who may have been exposed to the virus, controlling the spread
  • Our QR code is displayed near the western entrance to our centre and at several other locations under the covered terrace area and near the main entrances to the clubroom

Our practices continue to be guided by Tennis SA's Community Tennis Guidelines. These guidelines reinforce the key messages that we have been communicating that include:

  • if you are feeling ill in any way stay at home
  • at all times observe the density requirement of one person/square metre and physical distancing principle of 1.5 metres distance from all others both on and off the court
  • engage in good hygiene practices that include greeting and acknowledging through clicking of racquets and using the hand sanitisers provided at the complex

We ask all members to observe the above conditions at all times, so that there is no need for ‘marshalling!’

Officials from both the Government and Tennis SA continue to carry out regular checks on venues to ensure the rules are being followed. Heavy financial penalties as well as withdrawal of permission to hold these activities can result if organisations are found to be non-compliant.

Any members who do not observe the above conditions at the South Park Centre at any time will be required to leave the centre.

We will continue to keep you updated
