Mountain Gate Tennis Club was established in 1960 and is continuing to grow at a rapid pace. Originally with only four courts at HV Jones Reserve, we are now in Reta Matthews Reserve at the end of Bourke Road Ferntree Gully. The new location has eight en tout cas courts adjacent to the tranquil setting of the Blind Creek trail.
We cater for a wide range of skill levels, whether you are a beginner looking for lessons, interested in weeknight social tennis, or competition tennis on weekends. The club is involved in many different competitions and leagues including Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday night competition through Knox District Night Tennis Association, Wednesday night mid-week Ladies competition, Saturday morning/afternoon and Sunday through Waverley District Tennis Association and Pennant.
Mountain Gate Tennis Club is affiliated with Platinum Tennis Academy who provide quality coaching to help players improve their skills and knowledge of the game. They also offer Hot Shots tennis for young players and parents to learn the game in a fun and friendly environment before moving on to competition tennis as they get older. The recently launched Open Court sessions are for adults who just want a hit and a bit of fun in a great social environment with a drink and snacks afterwards.
