Club History and Location

History

The Nunawading Tennis club has a proud and successful history dating back to 17 August 1967. At that stage the club had no courts, and had to hire them, but in February 1968 the Nunawading council made land available at Nicoll Park.

The first 3 courts were opened for play in June 1969, with a further 2 courts added in 1970. The original clubhouse was of timber construction and was situated where the carpark is today.

In May 1973, a co-operative of club members was formed to raise funds for the permanent clubhouse.

The current clubhouse was officially opened on 29 May 1977 by Cr. R. Meagher; the culmination of 10 years of hard work by members of the club.

In March 1978, floodlights were installed on courts 4 & 5.

In July 1978, courts 6 & 7 were completed

In 1985 we became Nunawading Tennis Club Inc.

In March 1986, floodlights were installed on courts 6 & 7, then in Aug 1990 floodlights were installed on courts 2 & 3.

Today we are a thriving, family friendly club with over 260 members.  Many members play competition tennis including:
