Holy Family Tennis Club

Holy Family Tennis Club has been an integral part of Holy Family Parish since approximately 1967.

The Club was originally set up by parishioners with a keen interest in tennis, on four en tout cas courts, that the members funded themselves.

The Club has now hosted generations of past and present families from Holy Family Parish, Holy Family Primary School, Avila College, and the local community.

With about 90 members, the Club fields four senior teams that compete on Saturday afternoons during Summer and Winter seasons in the Waverley and Districts Tennis Association competition.

The Club also hosts members of the Catholic Korean Community who play socially, normally on Sunday afternoons.

During 2013 the Club proposes to advertise for a coach to provide coaching services for the parish, the Club, and both Holy Family Primary and Avila College.

The Club plays on a synthetic grass surface shared with other sports on the Avila College premises.

During 2013 the Club is planning to purchase two additional nets on movable frames to increase the total number of courts in use from four to six.

The Club has a fully stocked medical kit and a Bendigo Bank funded Automated External Defibrillator (AED) in the event that a player or visitor requires medical treatment or emergency assistance.

The current Club President is Paul Johnson, a local parishioner, who may be contacted by telephone on (03) 9807 7176, mobile telephone on 0439 434 925, or email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
