The Junior Club has been part of the Mt Lawley Tennis Club since 1955. This is a great place for our younger tennis players to develop their skills and understanding of the game of tennis.
Social activities are held for these young members and their parents to promote friendship and being part of club life. The Junior Club offers a range of activities from social tennis to competition league tennis and caters for every standard of play.
Members are generally accepted from the age of 6 until they turn 18. Kids younger than 6 and eager to start playing tennis are advised to have a chat with our Club Coach and our Junior Development Director.
JUNIOR CLUB TIMES
Fridays: 4:30pm - 6:00pm (during the regular tennis season)
Our social tennis for junior members on Friday afternoons is run by our Junior Development Director. Social activities including sausage sizzles, pizza nights and a Christmas function are also held during the season on these evenings. The bar is generally open for parents who would like to socialise while the kids play.
We encourage our older juniors (15+) to join in with the senior players on some Saturday afternoons to help with the transition into senior membership.
