The Southlands Tennis Club

The Southlands Tennis Club was officially opened in July 1976.  It is currently operating under a 25 year lease which commenced on 6 April 2011. We are located in southern Canberra, in the beautiful Woden Valley near the main Southlands Shopping Centre car park in Mawson ACT.  The Club is close to the Woden Town Centre and the Canberra Hospital and has regular public transport services.

The Club is affiliated with Tennis ACT, and actively promotes tennis at all levels in our community, particularly social play.  We welcome players of all standards. Follow us on Facebook for more updates on what's happening around our club.

The Club is guided by the policies of Tennis Australia, including their National Member Protection Policy and Safeguarding Children Code of Conduct aimed at protecting the health, safety and well-being of all players.  If you have any concerns about inappropriate behaviour please contact our Member Protection Information Officer by email to : southlandstennisclub@gmail.com or phone 0450 961 053.

The Club has four synthetic courts (one resurfaced in November 2023 and another in April 2024), two with lighting, a practice wall, and a clubhouse.  The Club is a not-for-profit club operated by a voluntary committee, elected at the annual general meeting. Fees are determined by the committee.


Thanks to Tennis Australia and Tennis ACT, our tennis hitting wall has been revamped - click here for details.

The Southlands Tennis Club also expresses its sincere thanks to:

  • the Member for Bean, Mr David Smith MP, and the Commonwealth Government for a grant of $2500 under the 2022 Stronger Communities Programme, for the purchase of a fully automated defibrillator 
  • the ACT Government for its $30,000 grant for energy-efficient LED lighting under the 2020 Sport & Recreation Capital Assistance Program
  • the MAWSON CLUB for its generous donations as part of its community purpose contributions program: 2021 - 4 new sight screens/windbreaks and 2024 - new double gates and fencing.

The Club looks forward to its continuing association with the Mawson Club and encourages all members and players to support the Mawson Club.
