In addition to all the tennis programs we have for everyone, we also have a range of social activities through the year making Manning Tennis Club definitely a great place to not just for the tennis players but also non-tennis players.
Throughout the year, we organise numerous social events in an effort to create opportunities for members to interact with one another as well as to provide friends and family and the community in general a chance to experience the wonderful atmosphere of our club.
These events includes annual events like Open Day, Quiz Night, Christmas Party and our Playing for a Cause fundraiser as well as other social events throughout the year.
We're also always open to ideas so if you have any suggestions, we'd love to hear them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can find out what events is happening at the club on our events calendar page here.
For us, it's important that we create an environment that enables families with different interest to be able to come to the one place. It also means that as our members grow and go through different phases of their lives, there's still something for them at the club not just on court but also off-court. It's why in recent years, we've installed a new 60-inch tv, a new children's playground, offer table-tennis and now pickleball and hopefully in time, we'll build our games room up to become and feel like our junior 'clubhouse'.
To help usher in the weekend and reward members and guests for getting through the week, we host regular Friday evenings where people can use any free tennis courts at no charge, play a game of pickleball (thanks to our partnership with Pickleball Perth) which is really fun and good for all ages or use our clubhouse facilities including the bar to wind-down and if numbers are sufficient enjoy a sausage sizzle.
Annual Open Day
To officially open every season, we hold an Open Day to get our MTC family together as well as welcome people from the community to come along and have a great time. With free organised social tennis, kids coaching sessions, shortened cardio tennis session, afternoon tea, a bouncy castle and much more, it's always an amazing and fun day.
Playing for a cause
Every November, the club intends to holds our annual MTC Playing for a Cause fundraising event to raise funds for Pancare Foundation.
Championed by our late former President and Club Legend Ajay Tandon, we held our inaugural Playing for a Cause fundraiser in November 2019 raising approximately $10,000 for Pancare Foundation and Cancer Council WA.
We created the name Playing for a Cause to enable other tennis clubs to get involved and play for their own cause. While we raise funds through everyday hero donations, hold a tournament, sell food and have an auction as part of the fundraiser, the fundraiser format is entirely up to clubs.
