Emerald Tennis Club

Emerald Tennis Club is ready to revitalise tennis at the club, located in the heart of Emerald at the rear of Worrell Reserve.

The club encourages all current and lapsed members to reconnect and attend a session.

Members of the local and wider community will also be welcomed to several sessions when club members are able to oversee the visits.

Tennis is classified as a non-contact sport and provides benefits to both physical and mental health.

Emerald Tennis Club is currently offering no cost and/or low cost visits as an introduction to the committee, members and coach at several sessions.
