TENNIS IN BALLITO
Come play a match of tennis in Ballito:
The roots of Umhlali Country Club’s Tennis section go way back many years ago before the concrete slabs were laid and five courts were erected in 1961 when the club was formed.
Once the old Umhlali Tennis Club was dissolved and in effect became the tennis section of Umhlali Country Club in 1961. Through the 1970’s and 1980’s the tennis section was well established with the traditional senior and junior tournaments continuing and local players enjoying their social tennis an some league tennis. For many years the Umhlali team dominated the league.
The 90’s saw the arrival of the club’s first resident coach – Roger Ferrandi, who to this day still runs a successful academy and tournaments.
Since then a few changes have been made to their schedule. A group of Men have started playing on a Tuesday afternoon. We now hold social tennis on Saturdays from 1pm. The ladies play on a Tuesday and Friday morning.
Fee: R70 (Mon – Sun) for up to a 2 hour session.
Court Lights: R90 (Mon – Sun) for up to a 2 hour session – Booking Essential!
