POSTPONED: Playford Tennis Centre - Open Night & Outdoor Cinema

Tennis Open Night 2023 POSTPONED Website banner


Due to unfavourable weather, we have made the difficult decision to postpone our Tennis Centre Open Night and Outdoor Cinema until further notice.

We’ve been overwhelmed with the tremendous wave of support from the community for this event.

Currently we are looking for another date to host the event on, which once confirmed will be advertised on our social media and website.

Playford Tennis Centre is heading to infinity and beyond! For a night of all out fun and games and a special screening of Pixar's Lightyear.

Join us for an Open Night filled with games, a tennis coaching clinic, face painting, and prizes! Then stick around for a movie under the stars.

  • Event starts: 4:30pm
  • Cost: Free event (and free popcorn!)
  • Location: Playford Tennis Centre, 50 Spurance Road, Elizabeth East, SA, 5112

No booking is required for the event.


Before the outdoor screening at 7pm, meteoric entertainment and food for hungry astronauts will storm the courts, with roaming wildlife, Henna, jumping castles, outdoor games, face painting, entertainers and inflatables, just to name a few.

A BBQ will be run by our fantastic Playford Tennis Club, with other food options and snacks available from the canteen.

Amazing tennis themed prizes will also be up for grabs over the night.
