The Southlands Tennis Club

The Southlands Tennis Club was officially opened in July 1976.  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.

The Club is guided by the policies, etc of Tennis ACT including their National Member Protection Policy and their Safeguarding Children Code of Conduct aimed at protecting the health, safety and well being of all players.

The Club has four synthetic courts, 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.


The Southlands Tennis Club expresses its sincere thanks to:

  • the Member for Bean, Mr David Smith MP, and the Commonwealth Government for a grant of $2500 under the Stronger Communities Programme Round 7, for the purchase of a fully automated defibrillator 2022
  • 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 donation towards 4 new sight screens/windbreaks as part of its 2021 community purpose contributions program. The Club looks forward to our continuing association with the Mawson Club and encourages all members and players to support the Mawson Club.
