Ballina Tennis Club

SENIORS ROUND ROBIN TOURNAMENT

We have reluctantly decided to cancel the  Sunday 14th May event due to poor weather predictions and the clash with Mothers’ Day.    It is hoped to re-schedule the event when the weather improves.

FUNDRAISING

We are still seeking to raise funds towards the cost of redevelopment of the clubhouse.   Details can be found in this new section, including a copy of the plan, and you may make a tax free donation there via the Australian Sports Foundation.  So far we have raised over $15,000 in fundraising activities and have over $60,000 in reserve towards  a total cost of approximately $200,000.  We have also recently received a grant of $17,000 from the NSW Community Building Partnerships program, which will see the first stage construction of ramp access to the  clubhouse in the near future, and a commitment of $20,000 from the Ballina Shire Council. You may view an updated promotional club video on YouTube: btc holden submission 2017.

Welcome To The Ballina Tennis Club

Welcome to the Ballina Tennis Club website, which has been designed for both members and non-members.

If you are a member, we shall keep you informed of events, activities, and happenings. If not we hope this website might encourage you to join us on our courts, if not as a member, at least to play tennis either privately or by joining some of the club’s programs as a guest.  Members do have a number of advantages, including discounted rates for play and coaching, and insurance through Tennis NSW.   Learners, for whom coaching is available, and visitors to Ballina are equally welcome, whether as members or otherwise.

We have over 350 members of all ages and abilities, and there are plenty of opportunities for everyone to play on one of our eleven synthetic grass courts throughout the week from early morning to 9.30 pm. If our clubhouse is unattended, a key to the courts can be obtained from the Cherry Street Bowling Club, which handles all public bookings and is our major sponsor.

We should  like to acknowledge here the assistance provided by Paradise FM radio, the Northern Star, and the Ballina Advocate – and  also Conarts, designer of this website, whom we would highly recommend to any local tennis or other sports club.

Details of fees, programs, coaching, and contact persons can be easily found in the following pages.

Our club is located on the corner of Cherry and Burnet Streets, immediately south of the Bowling Club.    If you need more information, go to the contact us section of this website.   You can also find out more by viewing our promotional video on YouTube: BTC Holden Submission 2017
