Mulgrave Country Club's Tennis Section
Play on one of our three floodlit, state of the art tennis courts. WDTA competitions are held throughout the year, with teams competing from A to D Grade.
Excel Tennis Coaching is flourishing
Excel Tennis Coaching is flourishing at Mulgrave and is offering new classes this year, with the hope to also incorporate a Hot Shots Orange Ball class, pending court availability. Excel offers both group and private classes to all ages and ability nurturing those players that may want to step up to competition or social tennis.
B1 Open grand finals
The B1 Open Rubbers team played their Grand Final against East Burwood, a team they’ve tussled for top position all season. With the home ground advantage and vocal support, the newly formed team were triumphant in their endeavour to bring home the Winter 2014 Flag. Congratulations to Jaidyn Lai, Lisa Del Vecchio, Elena Pereira and Hans Wang!

Our social competition is perfect for new players to have a hit without the pressure of competition, for those interested in easing back into the game or even for experienced players who don’t have time to join a team or those who simply want more tennis! Held every Thursday night from 7:30 pm. To register your interest or for further information, contact Tina on: 0403 531 692.
Annual club championships
Our annual Club Championships are usually held in Spring, during October and November. The Club Championships are a great opportunity to have some fun with your fellow members - both competition and social members are fans of the event. It is definitely a social atmosphere rather than a competitive one but there are trophies to be won. From this year onwards, the Club Championships will be held in February/March 2014.
