ITC’s mother used to always say you meet the nicest people playing tennis and we think she’s right. We are so lucky to have some beautiful tennis courts in Lane Cove, Longueville, Greenwich, Riverview, Osbourne Park and Mowbray. Many of these courts are run by local tennis clubs and their volunteers work tirelessly to promote tennis and look after the courts.
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 tennis club and courts to where you live.
