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 21/7/14

Another month has passed and the builders have made great progress on the clubhouse. The main floor slab will be laid in the next few days and then we will see the final shape of the building start to form. Council has made some significant changes to the fitout so the building works better for the club. The Committee is very happy with the process of design and looks forward to a building that not only looks good but functions well for the members of South Hawthorn.

For further information go to the newsletter section.

  • 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.

Seems like a no brainer to us. Why do boxing at boot camp when you can get the same fitness and improve your tennis at the same time?
