Social Tennis

Social tennis at Floreat Park is friendly organised doubles and mixed doubles sets, each of about a half hour duration.

We aim to put people into sets of a standard they are comfortable with. We normally don’t worry too much about the score but occasionally have more structured events with a small prize.

Social tennis caters for a wide range of tennis abilities. Players are expected to know how to be able to play tennis and at least get most serves into play and hit a few shots back. If you are new to tennis it would be best to talk to the coaches first.

Visitors are welcome to just turn up at social tennis, but if you would like more information please contact the Club Coach Andy Mackechnie via SMS on 0450 040 960.

Players can arrive and leave at any time in the afternoon. If you plan to leave early then either let the Captain know or put a line through the sets that you don’t want to play (on your nametag).
Our club does not charge for tea, coffee, biscuits or ball usage during organised social play.
