WELCOME TO TENNIS SYDNEY and AMAZON TENNIS
Tennis Sydney and Amazon Tennis is Australasia's largest LGBT tennis club that aims to promote and facilitate gay and lesbian tennis in Sydney. Our progam of events include social tennis; mid-week night competitions; Club doubles days; and two major Gay & Lesbian Tennis Alliance (GLTA) tournaments each year. We cater to a broad player group with a wide range of skill levels from beginner to advanced and host numerous events all year from the social to the competitive for LGBT players in Sydney and for visiting players from inter-state and overseas. New players are always welcome.
We invite our Members and friends to enter the 2016 Peter Deacon Spring Tournament to be held at Cintra Park Concord from 23-25 September 2016. This event is a Gay & Lesbian Tennis Alliance (GLTA) sanctioned tournament and part of the GLTA WORLD TOUR 2016.
Spring Mid-Week Comp is here! Entry to this comp is now open to all Members. Come show off all your tennis talents in this combo format of singles and doubles.
This competition follows the ‘weighted doubles format’. This means that in each division the highest seeded player will be matched with the lowest seeded player, the second highest with the second lowest and so on. The ‘weighting’ attempts to make for a more even standard across the divisions.
The draw and first round matches are now online here. For those players starting at 9am please be at the venue by 8.30am. For everyone else, please be there by 9am.
Welcome to the 2016 Club Doubles Lawn Tournament, Sunday 28 August, for Tennis Sydney and Amazon Tennis Members only. The draw is strictly limited to 40 teams. Only one member of your doubles team should enter and pay (whilst nominating your partner). So start lining up your partner now. This event is very popular and, with limited places, will fill fast. The event is also one of our major charity fundraiser days for the year.
Tennis Sydney/Amazon Tennis is committed to helping our members improve on their skills, and we are delighted to announce our Club Coaching Program to all new and beginning players.
In conjunction with the NSW Department of Sport and Recreation and InDeep Tennis, we will be offering subsidised group coaching sessions for groups of 4 players in 6 week blocks, throughout the remainder of 2016 and into 2017.
