Grow your game

The best way to progress as a tennis player is to spend more time on court. We recommend players try and combine private coaching with another form of tennis activity. Whether that is junior squad, junior comp or our junior academy.

What happens if it rains?

In the event of inclement weather please call our pro shop 9332 3622. It is best to assume courts are open unless confirmed.

Re-enrolments for all term lessons (privates and squads) are automatic each term.  In the event your coach is away, we will provide a substitute coach. Make up lessons can be completed with any coach if your coach is not available. Make-up lessons cannot be used in substitute of a regular weekly booking & cannot be deducted from the following terms fees or credited towards other services.  Private lesson term bookings are non transferable nor refundable.

What if it rains during the lesson?

If a lesson is not completed due to rain, a make up lesson will be issued (If the majority (50% or more) of a lesson is completed, no make up lesson will not be issued). Some lessons can be completed indoors.
