SOCIAL TENNIS

HILLS DISTRICT TENNIS ASSOCIATION

SOCIAL TENNIS

Club Social Tennis is held every Thursday evening from 7pm until 10pm at our Dural Tennis Centre (44 Quarry Rd, Dural) and every Sunday afternoon from 3:00pm until 6:00pm at the upper courts of our Castle Hill Centre (located in Fred Caterson Reserve). Our Club Social caters to players who can’t commit to a weekly competition or just want some extra hitting practice in a friendly, non-competitive environment.

Register for the Social...

In order to join the Thursday Night or Sunday Afternoon Social Tennis groups, experience and a familiarity with tennis is required. For players who are beginners or who have not played in a long time, it is recommended that a few lessons with a qualified coach are taken prior to joining. This is to ensure the social player experience is worthwhile and enjoyable for all players.

Our friendly social coordinator, Wendy is always on hand to organise the player pairings for each doubles set. We organise 8 game sets, loosely based on standard, to ensure everyone gets a good hit. We also try to mix it up so you get to know as many of your fellow club members as possible. It is all about playing good tennis in good company.

Our club social is proving very popular with more than 30 players each week. A heavy demand for social tennis in good weather can cause waiting time between sets. When this happens we may operate a short deuce system to ensure regular and speedy court rotation. We aim to give each player a minimum of 3 sets at each session (subject to the time of arrival).

Due to this high demand, we have put a cap on the number of players attending each session. It is therefore necessary for players to pre-register their interest in playing, on the day of each session by texting ‘yes’ followed by your name to our social coordinator on 0429 525 827. The cut-off time for registering is one hour prior to start time. A ‘thumbs up’ response will indicate there is a spot available for you. Please do not just show up or you may be disappointed.  Equally, if something comes up and you are not attending, please sms to let Wendy know.

 

Cost – $20 per player per visit.
The accepted method of payment is EFTPOS (credit and debit cards). Please note we do not accept cash.

All information is listed on this website – please read it carefully.
