MEMBERSHIP – JUST $165 / YEAR

Joining the club entails attending on a Saturday afternoon as a visitor for up to 3 weeks so that you and the club can be confident that the standards of play are similar. First week is free …second and third if necessary is $15 per afternoon.

The standard of play at Cammeray is reasonably strong, with membership restricted to A grade equivalent to or mainly better than NSTA A7. (If this grading system means nothing to you, another way of saying it is “competitive social play” or better – no beginners.)

The cost of membership is just $165 (inc.GST) per calendar year.

Members can attend all Saturday afternoon and Thursday night sessions at no further cost!

Please note that due to membership fluctuations there may be periods when we are not accepting certain categories of new members.

1/2/2018: New membership opportunities for men are currently limited. 

If you’re interested in joining please email us at info@cammeraytennis.asn.au.

FORMAT

Social play is organised by Court Captains who create doubles matches trying to ensure everyone has an ENJOYABLE afternoon of tennis playing at their standard.

In general no distinction is made between Guys and Gals when games are chosen….just each person’s standard of play.

 

COMPETITIONS

There are 2 main Doubles competitions each year organised by the NSTA (spring & autumn) that CTC enters teams for.

All club members may submit their names for inclusion in CTC Teams. The teams are either Mixed or Men’s and the division in which a team plays is based on average grading of each team’s members.

We also hold a yearly club championships (usually over a 6-8 week period in July/August/September) which include singles, open doubles, mixed doubles, and handicap doubles – all members are encouraged to take part.

 

SOCIAL ACTIVITIES

Afternoon tea is part of each Saturday afternoon play. These afternoon teas are provided by members on a roster basis with partial compensation of costs.

The major event of the year is our Christmas Party which is generally held at a different local restaurant each year. Food, drink, and entertainment is provided and yearly Club Championship presentations are made.

The other club subsidised yearly event is the “XMAS in JULY” dinner. Nothing formal about this , just an opportunity to gather with other club members while not dressed in tennis gear.
