Welcome to the South Hawthorn Tennis Club website.  Our tennis club lies amidst the parklands and sportsfields of Anderson Park in Hawthorn East and our aim is to provide a friendly and fun place to play tennis. We're a community oriented club with over 550 members from the local area and nearby. It's a great place to meet your neighbours and have some fun. We offer fantastic facilities for tennis players of all standards. Whether it's a social hit or competition play, we offer you the opportunity to get involved. For families we have a special Family Membership and our resident coaches can provide lessons from beginners to adults at times to suit you.

Please enjoy browsing through our website and if you require further information, we'd love to hear from you. Please contact us on and we look forward to seeing you around the club.

 Clubhouse Update 28/8/14

More progress in the last couple of weeks with the roof structure and stud walls showing the interior spaces.
 The roof goes on next week, then work can begin on the interior.
A subcommittee is choosing furniture and we are hopeful that we will be comfortable in our new building by the end of the year.

  • New courts on the way The club is currently waiting on quotes to rebuild courts 5 & 6. The courts will be built on a new sub layer which will have better slope to improve drainage and a slightly softer feel underfoot.We hope this will provide a better bounce and make these courts even more popular. Meanwhile council will shortly remove the old shed and viewing shelters beside the bottom courts. These structures have asbestos roofs so we will be happy to see them go. The light control box will be mounted outside the courts and the club is investigating an upgrade of the shelter next to the BBQ at the North end of the courts.
