The Playford City Tennis Centre is now open and is an ace way to get into one of the world’s most popular sports in your own backyard.
Players from across the nation will participate in an Australian Ranking Tournament in November, while the world will come to Adelaide’s north for the City of Playford Tennis International (December 30 to January 7).
However, there are also many chances for locals to hit the courts.
The Grove Tennis Club has moved into the centre from its former home at Elizabeth Vale and its members are now playing on some of the best courts in the country. READ: First tournament World class Wall art a hit
Club secretary Gloria Dennis said the focus for members is that The Grove has a “great family feeling” and that the “community embraces the new courts”.

“I’d really encourage anyone in and around Playford to come and join us at our family oriented club.”The facility features 16 Plexi-pave courts and eight hot shot courts and, along with a new club house, the Playford City Tennis Centre is meeting the current and future needs for local community sport and for hosting major tournaments.
