Manning Tennis Club offers both competitive and social play for adults throughout the year.
Competition wise, we offer players the opportunity to participate In Tennis West, South Suburban Tennis Association (SSTA) and WA Catholics Lawn Tennis Association (WACLTA) competitions.
Socially we have a number of playing opportunities although we ask you contact the club at firstname.lastname@example.org in the first instance as timings, activities and formats vary slightly throughout the year.
We recognise the importance of assisting our juniors integrating with or adult players which is why we encourage our upcoming older junior players to have a hit with the adults.
We also try and organise activities throughout the year that enables us to have adults and juniors mix on court to get to interact with each other and also learn more about the programs in place across the club.
Below are some social tennis activities that's offered during the year:
Monday morning: Social tennis (Ladies doubles)
Monday evening (generally only during summer)
Tuesday night social tennis (mainly doubles) 7pm to 9pm
Wednesday night social tennis (mainly doubles) 7pm to 9pm
Thursday night social tennis 7.30pm to 9.30pm
Friday - free play on available courts from 5.00pm during summer as part of our Friday evening activities (more info here)
Sunday afternoon social tennis (run by Pignatelli Tennis Club) - please note that due to COVID-19, this is only open to Pignatelli members for the time being.
To learn more about what's on offer, contact Dwayne Augustin via the club email or 0422 793 941.
Our club's coaching team (Tennis Academy) also runs a range of other tennis coaching programs including cardio tennis throughout the year.
Tennis West Competitions
The club mainly participates in Saturday Tennis West competitions (Adults) and Sundays (Juniors). However, if we have numbers we will always look to help accomodate players wanting to play in different leagues.
Nominations for the 2020/2021 Summer Tennis West Leagues are currently open with registrations of interest due by 9 September 2020. More information can be found here.
Manning Tennis Club is part of the South Suburban Tennis Association and during summer we participate in their Saturday Doubles team competition with each team comprising of 2 men and 2 ladies.
It is played on Saturday afternoon from 1pm and is usually held in summer between the October to April period. Registrations for summer teams are currently open till 9 September with more information found here.
Tuesday & Wednesday Night Social Competitions
During the warmer months, we run a Tuesday and Wednesday night social doubles competition at the club itself from 7pm onwards.
Players are usually placed in teams of 4 (2 men and 2 ladies generally) and play against other teams in a round robin format before the finals play-offs to decide the winner.
As a general take, Tuesday nights features playing with a vast array of playing abilities while Wednesday night features a majority of players who play competitively.
Both members and non-members are welcome to register to participate but they just pay different ball fees on the night.
During the periods where we don't have competitions, we try and have more of a week to week proposition where players can decide each week if they would like to play.
Where possible, we try and run our Club Championships during the months of March / April offering members an opportunity to claim the honours of being club champions.
As part of the championships, we also normally run a social tournament that is open to members, family and friends before sitting back to enjoy the grand finals.
