Living in Gungahlin or Tuggeranong?

Those living in Gungahlin play at Majura Tennis Club (Dickson). This Tennis Canberra Club is Gungahlin’s closest coaching service providers.   Majura Tennis Club offers junior group sessions on Monday, Thursday & Saturday for the North Canberra and Gungahlin region.

In the 1990s & early 2000s Tuggeranong was the powerhouse of tennis in the Capital. With the closure of Tuggeranong Tennis Centre, tennis has been on a steady decline. Until now…  Right in the heart of Tuggeranong, the Active Leisure Centre in Erindale holds junior lessons every Friday!

Does your kids go to any of these schools?

Turner Primary, Telopea Park & North Ainslie Primary have been lucky enough to participate in an after-school walk-to-tennis initiative.  This has helped so many parents and many parents cannot bring their kids to tennis right after school.  At the moment these are the only schools running this program however, with the success of the afternoon walk to the courts our team is looking for more options to get the kids from school to the courts.

The Wanniassa Hills Primary School student only started playing tennis 12 months ago after seeing photos of his grandfather playing and being inspired to get on the court.

“I started playing because of my grandpa. He played tennis and it looked really fun, so I gave it a go,” Turner said.

“When my mum told me I was nominated it was the happiest day of my life. I thought I had won the lottery or something.”

We have seen it all and the Australian Open hasn’t even started.  Huge win by our Canberra boy Nick Kyrgios in the Brisbane International.  Ash Barty showed why she considered one of the top women players in the world (even with a two-year break from the sport), and how could forget about the Demon Alex Di Minaur.  What an incredible two week for the youngster making the semis in Brisbane and the final in Sydney.

With a successful Pro Tour in Canberra and upcoming Federation Cup tie also around the corner tennis courts will be filled with new players eager to give tennis a crack.
