Junior Competition

Competition is a healthy social environment for your child(ren) to test and improve their skills that they learn during their lessons, helping them to enjoy the game of tennis! Junior competition via North Balwyn Tennis Club is with Eastern Region Tennis association (ERT).

There are two seasons per ERT calendar year.

Winter competition
runs over terms 2 and 3 of school.

Summer competition

The competition involves playing home matches (at North Balwyn) and away matches against other clubs in the eastern region area.
