Benefits of being a member


We do the hard work for you

At our social play sessions we arrange the venue, lights and court hire, organise the games and provide shuttles. You just need to turn up and bring your own racket to play!


Free coaching

Register for free coaching run on Sunday mornings. When you register you commit to a 4 week block of 1 hour coaching sessions. Groups are split into two levels, beginners and advanced.


Competitions and events

Every year Balmoral hosts club championships to find the best players of each event and grade. Occasionally we may also host other fun events like handicap tournaments or invite other clubs to join our club day.
