Tennis On Offer
At Beach Haven Tennis Club, we offer a large array of opportunities to play tennis. You are welcome to play individually (see below for court booking info) or / and join us on any of the activities!
Beach Haven Tennis courts electronic access key (fob)
Fobs are issued to club members if so requested. There is a $20 fee for this. Please email email@example.com to request yours.
The fob will open the gates to the courts, including the one in between the Beach Haven Tennis Club terrace and the Council terrace. It will also open the door to the club house so you can access the toilets and get your water bottle topped up.
To open an electronically closed door or gate just hold the fob in front of the key pad, there will be two beeps and the door or gate will unlock.
Since the fobs are personalised, the fob will be de-activated after you terminate your membership, please return your fob to the club, IT CAN BE RE-USED.
The fobs are issued with a username and a password that give you access to the iSquash system. You can check if the courts are booked or reserved and you can book a court for yourself and your partner for a certain date and time. Note: you can book ONE court for several timeslots, you cannot book TWO of more courts, that has to be done by an administrator.
Instructions on how to access the iSquash system below.

Remember to book your court before coming to play. It's easy and quick!

Wednesday Morning Tennis
We have a strong contingent of mid-week social players at BHTC. The Wednesday morning tennis session is open for all members - both beginners and experienced players and is going strong.
This is a very friendly group and strongly encourage those who are keen to swing by the club anytime and hit a few balls in a relaxed atmosphere.
Play commences at 9:00 AM, finishing at midday with a morning tea break around 10:30.
Play is organised on the day with an occasional mid-week friendly tournament thrown in to add flavour.
Come along and have a go, no partner needed. See you there!
Wednesdays and Fridays night club days
Senior Club Days are currently Wednesday and Friday evenings at 7:00 PM.
On club-days members' guests and public can join in for no charge for a maximum of three visits, after which they should become members.
Club members can use the club courts at any time unless they are booked for interclub or club nights.
Junior players meet on Saturdays at 9:00 AM (juniors aged 5-10) or at 10:00 AM (11 and depending on playing ability - ask the coach) during the summer season for coaching.
We like parents to be actively involved with the supervision and coaching of their children, and parents are encouraged to help on Saturday mornings at least once over the summer.
Junior Interclub teams start at 10 years old and run up to the age of 17.
Adult Beginner / Rusty Racquet
Moss runs a very popular Adult beginner / rusty racquet session on a Sunday from 4-6pm. Assisted by other developing coaches and other committee volunteers, a very keen group of people enjoy drills and some point play in a very welcoming and stimulating environment. This is a great introduction to the club and many of the attendees are now confidently attending other club sessions and some have also signed up for our intro interclub teams. A great pathway
