Started at the end of 2021, and gaining momentum, we will do these right through summer, The focus is on atmosphere, and having something the whole family can come along to - whether you are a member, an older member, or a potential member, or just wanting to get back into the court again.
6-7ish is a play session for adults, and any teens that can hold a rally. We have a bouncy castle and facepainting for the youngest members, and they tend to play on the courts when the adults clear off. We are lucky enough to have some great sponsors, Lee Radovanovich @ Barfoot and Thompson St Heliers, Sals Pizza (mission bay), and College of Law, providing pizza, prizes, and helping us introduce Gin n Tennis - Our "GIN PALACE" serving up some free Gin and Tonics - win all round!
