Ainslie Tennis Club is the second oldest club in Canberra, having started in 1928. We have a thriving social scene, with social tennis from 2-4pm on Sunday afternoons (9am-11am during daylight saving hours). Our players also participate in competition (pennant) tennis throughout the year and we have won more than 100 pennants during our history. We also offer coaching, for adults and juniors.
Children under 12 are to be supervised by a responsible adult at all times.
