The Parkville Tennis Club celebrated its centenary in 2004 having being founded in 1904 after local residents decided that tennis courts were needed in the area. The original courts were built using an asphalt surface and they were resurfaced in 1936 with a softer porous surface.
The club is home to three courts which are great for day or night play, as the courts are well lit in the evenings.
You can typically access the courts for hire between the hours of 6am and 11pm daily, with the exception of Wednesdays and Fridays between 8.30am and 12pm noon and Sundays from 2pm.
Contact the organisers on 0412 279 156 to book a court and the rates are $15 per hour, per court. If you are playing in the evenings and require lights, they will cost $6 per hour with users required to fill a meter on site with $2 coins.
Membership is available at the club, or you can just attend as a visitor. There are free social events run each month with game play and sausage sizzles, all are welcome to attend.
