Game Set Match – Tennis Courts in Lane Cove

tennis lane cove

ITC’s mother used to always say you meet the nicest people playing tennis and we think she’s right.  With the long summer days and Christmas holidays, it’s an ideal time to get into Tennis.  We are so lucky to have some beautiful tennis courts in Lane Cove, Longueville, Greenwich, Riverview, Osbourne Park and Mowbray.

ITC is a hit and a giggle type of player, but then there are other players who take it much more seriously.  We asked local tennis clubs to provide us with information on how to book courts.  ITC highly recommends strawberries and cream or (better still) Pimms after each match.  Many of the clubs have very cute little clubhouses where you can relax after the game.  Just scroll down and find the nearest tennis court to where you live.
