Dear South hawthorn Tennis Club members

I hope you have all been keeping safe and well during these times.

I am pleased to advise that our tennis courts will be reopening this Wednesday morning for members only. Please note that Courts 3 & 4 are being partially re-built at present and will not be available for at least another week – depending on favourable weather conditions.

Our Club is operating under strict Tennis Victoria guidelines and with the permission of the City of Boroondara, who lease the property to us. Please review the Tennis Court Access Protocol document for the complete guideline  It is important that our playing members abide by these requirements for our continued operation of the courts.

As a result of these requirements, your committee confirms that it is essential to book a court before coming to the club and include the names of all players using the booking.

  • To book a court use the online courts booking system, to make your own booking on the

website prior to coming to the courts

  • Singles and doubles are allowed, but players must be from not more than two

households per court booking.

Peak times to avoid:

  • Our busy times are Monday to Friday afternoons 4.00pm to 7.00pm (Coaching)
  • Wednesday and Friday mornings can also be busy with coaching


Please note that we have to comply with rules set down by the Victorian Government, Tennis Australia and the Boroondara City Council, who is our landlord. The council must ensure public health and they can shut us down at any time, if we do not comply with these guidelines.

Please contact myself or speak to a committee member if you have any questions.

Kind Regards,

Brett Somerville

Club Secretary
