Future Stars at Tennis Canberra

Saskia and Callison have come along way since starting with Tennis Canberra. They continue to train and compete together to this day.

Free Racquet Initiative (FRI) – For junior players new to Tennis Canberra

We see too many first-time juniors with racquet too big for them.  Having the wrong racket can encourage bad habits and slow the development of the learning player. The Free Racquet Initiative (FRI) is put in place so your child starts with a racket of the right fit.

Receive a racquet for you and a friend when you register together…

Upon sign up, using the referral source either list the full name of the friend that referred you or the friend that you referred.  If both players sign up you are entitled to a new tennis racket.  In week 1 or 2 you’ll trial one of our racquets for size and an order will go out with your brand new racket ready for you to use in week 3.

Playing the game from a young age has shown to increase passion and the love for the sport.  This love for tennis ultimately leads to faster skill acquisition, increased healthy practices and longevity for the sport.

Tennis Canberra has Canberra’s only grassroots inter-club teams competition.  This unique teams event exposes our Junior Club players (and invited Cubs players) to modified tennis matches at a young age.
