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.
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.
Calling all Winter Swingers!
Entry is now open for the 2016 Amazon Tennis Winter ‘Swingers’ Competition.
'Swingers' comp is a great opportunity to play doubles with a different person each week but is an individual competition where the winner will be determined by the highest number of games won. There will be 1 or 2 divisions of 9 players (depending on registrations) with a bye each week. You will play three sets of doubles each week.
The comp will start on Monday 11 July and will run for 9 weeks at Cintra Park Concord. Play starts at 7:30pm and normally finishes around 9:30pm. Remember to register early as the numbers will be restricted to 18 players (9 in each division).
It's time to step off the tennis court and into a bubble! Tennis Sydney invites you to play Bubble Soccer, our first social event of the year.
Cost per person for 2 hours of Bubble Soccer is $25. 30 people maximum, so get your bubbles on quick! Date: Saturday 16 July Time: 3-5pm Venue: Indoor basketball courts, Sydney University Sports & Aquatic Centre
For those who can not make soccer we will be having drinks post-Bubble Soccer hilarity at a venue nearby.
The tournament will take place on Sunday July 3 in North Parramatta. Only 64 entries accepted. Entry is $40 and is only available to Tennis Sydney and Amazon Tennis Members.
