Social tennis

Social mix-ins

Avondale have a number of social mix-ins throughout the week when some courts are reserved for social mix-ins (Senior and Off-peak members unless otherwise stated). Just turn up and join in! Times are as follows:-

  • Mondays 9am – 12 noon
  • Mondays 6pm – 8pm (Junior Members – term time)
  • Wednesdays 6pm – 10pm (Seniors and Senior Juniors)
  • Sundays 2pm – 4.30pm

American tournaments

We hold American tournaments on each of the 4 public holidays throughout the summer (Easter, two bank holidays in May and August bank holiday). We sometimes add extra tournaments if the calendar allows. These are informal but competitive events which take place from 1.30pm to around 5.30pm on the bank holiday date. To enter you will need to pre-register in advance – pre-registration details will be provided two or three weeks before the event. A round comprises 8 games in total with a change of partner after 4 games. Six rounds are usually played with a break for afternoon tea. The emphasis is on social play but small prizes are given to the players winning the highest number of games.

Weekday availability to play tennis

There are a number of regular fours playing tennis socially on Monday to Friday during the day time. Occasionally additional players are needed in these fours to cover players who are on holiday or injured or otherwise unavailable. If you are happy to be contacted about playing social tennis during the daytime on weekdays as a fill-in, please look for the sheet on the club-house notice board where you can sign up.
