Inclusion and Diversity
Manning Tennis Club strives to make the club safe, welcoming and inclusive for everyone.
We embrace diversity and we respect people's privacy with our focus being on ensuring we're able to provide everyone with the opportunity to play tennis should they want to do so.
To us, people are simply that - people. And each person deserves the same respect and opportunities to play the game.
While we have a variety of tennis offerings at the club, we recognise that we still have a long way to go towards putting in place that cater to everyone's needs. If you can't find what you're after, please email us so we can not only try and meet your needs but also learn and better understand how we can improve our offerings.
The club completed significant renovations back in early 2018 that has made our tennis courts and clubhouse fully accessible.
Although we currently don't have any programs for wheelchair tennis as yet, our courts are available for hire and can be booked online here.
Developing a suitable and sustainable program
Together with Tennis Academy, the club is seeking to establish a long-term and sustainable adaptive tennis program designed to remove as many barriers to the game as possible and provide people with special needs the opportunity to try the game of tennis.
While we have a vision of what the program might look like and what we want to achieve, this is new to us and we're keen to hear and work with organisations and individuals to develop a program that is fun, sustainable and provides participants a sense of ease and welcome.
If you have any advice or would like to support the development of such a program, please don't hesitate to contact us as we would love to hear from you. You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or through the contact form.
In recognition of International Day of People with Disabilities, the club together with City of South Perth, Tennis West and Tennis Academy are hosting an Inclusive Come and Try Day on Wednesday 4 December from 9.30am.
