Somers Tennis Club & COVID-19

Update: Wednesday 28 October 2020

Tennis Victoria has today provided an update on the Community Tennis Guidelines effective 11:59pm Tuesday 27 October. In summary:

  • We are allowed a maximum of 10 participants per group and no more than 10 total at the venue at any one time, EXCEPT where a reasonable distance can be maintained at all times. Whilst a "reasonable distance" has not been defined by DHHS, Tennis Victoria interpret this as a minimum of 1.5m between participants. Doubles play with individuals from more than two households is acceptable. We ask that you take a common sense approach to ensure groups are clearly separated.
  • People must still stay within 25km of their primary place of residence or workplace. Playing tennis competition is not a reason to travel beyond 25km.
 Please refer Tennis Victoria's update for further details.
We look forward to seeing you at Somers Tennis Club!

Welcome

Founded in 1929, with two asphalt courts on Shire Council land at Garden Square, Somers Tennis Club has provided social and strong competition tennis to the community since then, except during the Second World War.

In 1984 the club moved to RW Stone Reserve in Camp Hill Road when two plexipave courts were built with lighting. The current clubhouse was built by volunteers and opened in 1994, replacing the old tin shed which had served as a clubhouse.

In December 2005 a further court 3 was added, this time a synthetic grass court with lights. In January 2013, the two plexipave courts were resurfaced in Rebound Ace HSA, a cushioned hard court system designed specifically for outdoor use. In November 2018, the synthetic grass court was resurfaced in Rebound Ace HSA and our halogen lights were replaced with more energy efficient LED lights.

Somers Tennis Club has maintained a healthy membership, made up of about two thirds local and one third non-resident members. Our spectacular surroundings are the envy of many, and our Club is delighted to be able to offer outstanding facilities for both social and serious tennis players, as well as the many community members who make regular use of our lovely clubhouse. New members are always welcome.
