Welcome to Melville Palmyra Tennis Club.
We pride ourselves in being one of the friendliest tennis clubs around. Just as important is that due to a recent upgrade we now have the best facilities in the district. What is even more attractive is that our fees are the lowest around, particularly for potential new members to whom we offer a substantial discount ($100) in their first year. That means that in your first year as an adult member you will only pay $220. As we play all year round that equates to less than $5 per week – a bargain in anyone’s language.
We encourage the use of a free visit voucher to potential new members so that you can try us out before committing yourself to join (see downloads). We are sure you will not be disappointed.
We have nine grass courts and our five recently resurfaced hard courts are cushioned acrylic similar to those used for the Australian Open at the Melbourne Tennis Centre. To cater for our very young players we have a specially constructed mini court as part of our HOT SHOTS development program.
We have a resident coach who provides individual and group coaching for adults and juniors. (see Tennis Coaching page)
We have an excellent clubhouse with function and bar facilities. We also have enjoyable social and tennis programs including a number of pennant teams in the State Tennis League. We have also joined the South Suburban Tennis Association. This group conducts a summer competition for teams of three men and three women. For those who just enjoy social tennis, you will be well looked after. We have organised social tennis on weekends and on weekdays.
At different times during the year we have organised social events. Recently we had one of our monthly Sunday evening meals prepared by volunteer club members. These occasions, and other organised social functions (such as Casino Trips, movie and theatre nights or Wine tours of the Swan Valley etc), all help to maintain a happy spirit among club members.
