Ballina Tennis Club


Please note the change to members’ private court hire from $3 per person to $12 per court for up to two hours, and free practice times for juniors, playing together or with their parents or an adult.   These changes have been made to simplify the system for players  and club administration, and to encourage more use of the courts by juniors, in particular, who will no longer have to get a key from the Bowling Club at these times.  Details of times can be found in the fees and club management section of this website.

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. 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 nearly 300 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.  The club is located on the corner of Burnet and Cherry Streets, adjacent to the Bowling Club.

We should also like to acknowledge here the assistance provided by Paradise FM radio, the Northern Star, and the Ballina Advocate.

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
