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.
