Social tennis

Everyone is welcome at Yarralumla social tennis.  No need to be a member, and no need to book.  Just turn up! 

We have five social tennis sessions every week.  All standards are welcome, provided you can play a social match:  

  • Tuesday morning - 9.30-11.00am 
  • Wednesday morning - 8.00-10.30am
  • Wednesday evening - 7.30-9.00pm
  • Thursday morning - 8.00-10.30am
  • Saturday afternoon - 2.00-4.00pm but if the temperature is forecast to be over 33 degrees then play will start at 4.00pm

Fees are:  members - $3 per session;  non-members / visitors - $10 per session.  Members' fees are capped at $35 per quarter.

How does social tennis work?

We provide balls, but you need to bring your own racquet.  Each session is run by a co-ordinator, who organises people into groups and matches.  We usually play eight games and then rotate (rather than full sets), but it depends on the number of people attending and there is some variation between the different sessions.

Morning / afternoon tea is normally enjoyed after tennis and you are welcome to bring a plate to share.  However, there is currently no morning / afternoon tea due to Covid-19.

Not feeling confident enough to play social tennis?  Organise a couple of lessons with our fantastic coaches, and they will get your game back in shape in no time!  We are also happy to introduce you to some of our regular players, and help you find the right social session for you.

Who can I talk to about social tennis?

You are welcome to contact any of our social co-ordinators - Terry (Tuesday morning & Wednesday evening), Jill (Wednesday and Thursday mornings) and Maurice (Saturday afternoon).  Please email us at
