Social Tennis

Whilst Canterbury Tennis Club has a proud history of competing in affiliated tennis competitions, social tennis is also encouraged to facilitate a more relaxed environment in which to also enjoy the benefits of playing tennis.

Subsequently, there are a number of social tennis events held throughout the week and year. These are organised as doubles formats, which allow members and guests to socialise with each other. All standards are welcomed.  Casual attendance is permitted.

If you are enthusiastic to have a social hit, but are unable to attend any of the organised events indicated below, please email the club regarding other opportunities that may be more convenient.

Any enquires can be directed to the Club through the contact form.
