Return To Tennis

Following discussions with Tennis Victoria we have been given permission to use all of our courts, due to the size of the facility and that social distancing is practical.

The clubhouse is to remain closed, except for the toilet facilities.

Members are required to observe all hygiene and distancing, as per the Government regulations.

We would ask that players consider other members, who may be waiting for a court, and keep your time on the court to a minimum so that all members can now have the opportunity to enjoy their tennis.

Thanks for your patience during the difficult period.

The club coach will be using courts, from next Monday, during the following times.The coach has priority at these times.

  • Monday        1 court    9.30-11.00am, 4-7.15pm
  • Tuesday        2 courts  4-7.15pm

Exclusive Coaching Contract

Concern has been expressed to the committee that some members are conducting semi-professional coaching at the club. The Committee would like to remind all members that Eley Park Tennis Club has a Club Professional Coach, Geoff Summers, who is available for a wide range of tennis coaching and related services, including ANZ Tennis Hot Shots, Cardio Tennis, group lessons, private lessons and tennis equipment repairs and sales. Players of all ages from 3yo to all adults are welcome. As part of the contract the Club has with Geoff, he has exclusive rights to all coaching conducted at Eley Park. Members are reminded that they are not to undertake any coaching activity except with members of their immediate family.

Reminder - Club Security

Would members please ensure that if they are the last to leave the tennis courts and/or the clubhouse that the door is locked and the padlock on the gate closed. This also applies to the gate lock at Court 6. This is the third time in the past few weeks that I have found the premises unlocked and next time it could be trashed which would incur maintenance expenses and lots of inconvenience to players. 

Defibrillator

The Defibrillator will be located in a metal cabinet near the entrance to the Clubhouse.  The key for the padlock is keyed-alike to the gate key.

Social Tennis

Many current and new members enquire about social tennis. We have opportunities on Wednesday afternoons, Thursday mornings & nights, Saturday afternoon. We are endeavoring to create a regular NIGHT SOCIAL on Wednesday nights, particularly in between night comp seasons. This is a great way to try our courts, get to know a few people and have "a good hit". Visitors are charged the normal $6 visitor fee when accompanied by a member and everyone contributes a few dollars to cover the lights and balls.
