About

Established in 1920, the club has a heritage spanning 100 years.

The club has grown to a healthy membership of over 110 members and is steadily growing each year.

George Tennis Club aims to promote tennis in George, provide and maintain our facilities and activities for members. We invite tennis lovers of all levels to join us.

Members enjoy social tennis every week on Wednesday and Saturday afternoons.

We regularly host social events for members throughout the year such as the popular Wimbledon day where members get to dress in white and play with wooden racquets. We often have fires lit for members to bring family along and braai after social tennis.

We offer tennis coaching at the club for all levels by our resident coach, Helgard Muller, the longest full-time Professional Tennis Coach in the Southern Cape with over 25 years coaching experience.

George Tennis Club is proud to compete every year in the Eden district Leagues. We have had great success competing in the Men’s, Ladies and Mixed leagues.

We host various tournaments including TSA events and Eden Tennis Association events, from Junior to Senior tournaments.

Every year members get to compete against each other in our Club Championships – Men’s and Ladies singles, doubles and mixed doubles.

We are affiliated with Eden Tennis Association locally, and with Tennis South Africa nationally.
