Unlike any other Tennis Club in Canberra… Perhaps Australia… Big Claim, But It’s True
There are number of legends that may have started the after-tennis social fun at Tennis Canberra. People say it was the first Brodburger dinner experience with Edwina, Laura and Robbie after a Monday night Cardio Tennis session. It could of been the $10 UniPub steaks Avi and Robbie attended for 9-months after a long day of coaching on a Monday at the Old Parliament House Gardens before opening it up to all our Monday Adults. Perhaps it was the Thursday night bonding salsa lessons for the coaches when we first formed a team.
Folklore says it was our weekly coffee session after our Barton, now Old Parliament House 9:30am ladies group before Robbie established Tennis Canberra.
However it started, our social nature is an imprint of who we are as people. We are proud of what we do on court however our greatest achievements are seen within the friendships initiated through tennis but then taken further due to the time spent beyond the tennis court.
From weekly outings to social and charity events we take pride in facilitating an environment where our players and coaches can form life long friendships beyond the tennis court. Don’t take my word for it, join a tennis session and attend an after-tennis gathering and you’ll see what I mean.

Thursday Dinners (after our 5:30pm, 6pm & 6:30pm OPH Adult Skills) – Join the class!
After a week of dinners for our coaches our belly’s are full! We do not have a regular outing for our Thursday players (aside from the random dinners off the cuff). With the amount of awesome players that play on Thursday there is no reason we shouldn’t start another one.
If anyone on Thursday wants to start a Thursday Dinner Facebook Group please do!! Because all coaches are all on court at these times we are sorting out how we can get a coach to head out to dinner to join!
