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.
The Tennis Sydney & Amazon Tennis Committee invite all our Members and friends to join us for the 2017 Australasian Gay & Lesbian Open (AGLO) to be held on 13-15 January 2017 at Cintra Park, Concord. AGLO will be held in January during the Australian 'summer of tennis' including the Grand Slam Australian Open. The event is sanctioned by the Gay & Lesbian Tennis Alliance (GLTA) and will be one of the first GLTA WORLD TOUR events for 2017.
The Tennis Sydney and Amazon Tennis Committee extends an invitation to our Members and their partners/friends to join us on Saturday 26 November 2016 for our annual Christmas Party and Oscars Awards presentation.
This years function will be held at the Dove & Olive, in the Lounge Bar, 156 Devonshire St, Surry Hills. The Oscars this year have several new awards voted by the Members and the Committee. And all your favourites are back.
Alternatively, we will be collecting money at Sunday Social. We hope that you can all make it to celebrate the season, and to acknowledge the achievements of our Members both on and off the court.
The Committee would love to know if our fabulous Members would be interested in marching for Tennis Sydney/Amazon Tennis in the 2017 Mardi Gras Parade.
We would also need a few Members to help put it together.
