Get Court Up

Tennis is a sport everyone can enjoy, and it's easy to play at Donald McLean Reserve. We encourage you to book a court, grab a racquet and have a hit with your family and friends.

When you book a court online we'll send you a PIN to access the court/s you have booked. Please note your booking PIN code will take 30 minutes to activate after you have made your booking online. Please book at least 30 minutes prior to the time you want to access the courts

Please note, all club bookings of the courts will incur a fee. If you would like to book the netball courts, please contact Jasmin Harrison at
