About the tennis club

The Hamlyn Park Tennis Club in Carey Street, Hamlyn Heights offers community access to 3 synthetic grass, 2 plexi-pave courts and clubroom facilities. Our tennis club has a membership base of over 200 members which caters for people as young as 5 through to all levels of our senior players.

Our tennis club has Junior, Senior and mid-week ladies teams participating in the Tennis Geelong Association competitions on Saturdays and Tuesdays. In addition, our tennis club also caters for a wide section of our community including local Primary and Secondary Schools. We also have Junior Development tennis teams such as the Coca-Cola Squad as well as other community groups who utilise our courts through various stages of the year.

 School Term Coaching

Run during the school terms by our resident coach Julie Golightly, the tennis club offers professional coaching that is catered to all standards of tennis at a very reasonable rate.

Held each Wednesday after school times, each coaching session goes for 30 minutes and times are flexible to be family friendly! Julie can also organise individual coaching to suit personal needs.

Julie will be happy to answer any query and is contactable on 0418 145 028 or tennisfanatics@bigpond.com .

The Good Sports Program – Accredited Member

Sports clubs such as ours play a significant role in the community and therefore have a responsibility to our members and their families. In recognition of this, the Hamlyn Park Tennis Club is an accredited member of the Good Sports program.

The program is run in Victoria by the Australian Drug Foundation in conjunction with VicHealth, the Traffic Accident Commission (TAC) and the Alcohol Education Rehabilitation Foundation. The program has been designed to assist clubs with the responsible management of alcohol and is the only nationwide program of its kind.

As you may be aware, the Hamlyn Park Tennis Club does have a “Liquor Consumption Licence” and therefore is being pro-active in ensuring all members and visitors to our tennis club enjoy their stay and contribute to the friendly family environment that the club has worked hard to create!

As a community based club we believe involvement in this program is a way for our club to promote a healthy and welcoming club culture whilst working to consistently meet our duty of care obligations.

COURTS ARE FOR USE BY MEMBERS ONLY.

The courts are not available for casual hire, although block hire is available by application to the Management Committee.

Members must ensure that people playing with them have joined the Club and are financial members. Members must carry their membership tag with them when using the courts.

Members are responsible to ensure that unauthorised persons do not use the courts when they are playing. This is best done by locking the gates after you enter, and only allowing access to members who can identify themselves by current membership tag.

Approved tennis footwear must be used at all times on the courts. The courts are not to be used by children on bicycles, roller blades or skateboards, or to be used for soccer or football or any other purpose apart from tennis.

Anyone using lights must pay $10 per hour for light hire.

The courts should be swept after use using the broom hanging on the Clubroom wall.
