Altona Tennis Club is committed to promoting participation in tennis from women off all ages and abilities. Over the years, we have noticed increased participation from junior girls however this has not led to an increase in women playing competition tennis. The Club finds that the late secondary school period is a defining moment where girls appropriately prioritise their studies. We are keen to support young women to keep in touch with tennis during their transitional years, as tennis provides health and fitness and helps balance the pressures of further study and work. We are pleased that 3 of our current junior girls are looking to take on the blokes (and the occasional woman) in the WRTA Pennant competition in coming seasons.
Other Competitions Available To Women Include
- Wednesday Night Women’s Tennis – part of the Western Suburbs Night Tennis Group Inc. We are one of the few clubs in the Hobsons Bay area with the capacity to take on more teams
