The roots of Umhlali Country Clubs tennis section go all the way back to 1919, long before the 5 courts were erected in 1961 when the club was formed. The sixth court was built a few years later.
The bottom 3 courts have recently undergone a revamp and floodlights have been added, the floodlit courts provide an opportunity to play tennis after sunset. Another recent addition is the hitting wall if you are alone and would like to hit some balls around.
For those interested in competitive tennis, the tennis committee regularly arranges championship round-robin tournaments and league games against other Clubs.
Social tennis is also arranged by the committee on Saturday afternoons from 2pm, it provides a great opportunity to meet other members and play varying strengths of players. Alternatively the ladies team practices are every Monday morning and men’s social tennis is played every Tuesday afternoon.
The resident tennis coach is Roger Ferrandi, he is flexible in terms of booking times and coaches both adults and children. If you are interested in coaching please contact Ferrandi’s Tennis Academy on 082 791 3326.
