Vikings Social Tennis Club

The Vikings Social Tennis Club Incorporated (VSTCI) was formed in July 1996 for members of the Vikings Club seeking a competitive but purely social tennis game without fixed commitments. The Club is based at the four courts adjacent to the Vikings Town Centre Club on Athllon Drive, Greenway. A pre-condition of VSTCI membership is to be a current financial member of the Vikings Group.

The tennis courts were constructed approximately 20 years ago. The aim of the Club is to promote the game of tennis and provide the opportunity to learn and improve skill standards in a pleasant social environment. Organised sessions are Tuesday, Friday and Sunday mornings as well as Tuesday and Thursday nights. Members of the tennis club may hire courts at a reduced rate outside these sessions. Professional coaching is offered once a month for members before the Sunday morning session. There are 150 members (this is including family memberships).

There are 8 committee members and their details are below.

President: Don Masters 0409 991 542  
Vice President: Stuart McIntosh
Treasurer & Public Officer: Diana Iolovska
Secretary: Andrea Sheather 0406 303 706
Membership: Ian Bottcher  0478 729 667
Committee Member: Paul Miners
Committee Member: Chris Adam
Committee Member: Doug Williamson

The membership of the VSTC is booming for several reasons. For a low annual membership fee a member may attend any (or all) of the sessions previously outlined. Because we don’t submit pennant teams there is a strong emphasis on social tennis and this makes it easier for novices to take up the sport and for people who want to return to tennis after a long lay-off. Tournaments are held four times a year which are very popular.

How do I join your Club?

A prospective member must first join the parent club. Application forms and payment can be obtained at reception or by attending one of the sessions where a session leader or committee member can process the application. A non- member may pay a visitor’s fee of $5. 

Membership Details

There are only two categories: Full adult membership and family membership. Membership of the club falls due on 30 June of each year. There is no pro rata system for members who wish to join for only part of the year. People under the age of 18 years must be accompanied by a parent, guardian, or adult member if attending organised sessions.

Membership fee is currently $40 per year (single) or $60 per year (family).
