Do you wish to play social tennis? If your answer is ‘yes’, then you will be most welcome to join the social tennis group of the WPH Sports Club. Founded some forty years ago, the social tennis group is managed by a committee which is responsible for social tennis activities year round as well as the collection of court hire fees and the recruitment of new members. The committee reports to the Board of the Club on a regular basis in accordance with its articles of association.
A number of social functions are held throughout the year for the benefit of our members, their partners and friends. These include BBQs during the warm season; an occasional breakfast meeting or morning brunch and; an annual dinner in July of each year.
Our aim is to offer the best of social tennis for both men and women players. All that we require of new members is a good intermediate standard in playing tennis doubles. Unlike competition tennis, there is no obligation on any player at any time to ‘go out there and win’, as we play for recreation only in a spirit of friendship and fun. We pride ourselves on our hospitality and are always ready to welcome new members to our group.
Two synthetic grass courts are available for social tennis at any particular time. If you wish to join the social tennis group, you will be required to obtain two categories of membership as follows:
- Membership of WPH Sports Club – $5. 00 per year. This entitles the member to the privileges and enjoyment of the Club’s facilities all year round.
- Membership of the Social Tennis Group – $5. 00 per year. This provides entitlement to all playing privileges and access to the tennis courts to play social tennis at the appointed times each week throughout the year.
