Pennant/League

The Forrest Tennis Club (FTC) has a proud tradition of pennant/league play in the Canberra region; we have consistently for many years fielded many teams over the various divisions in the Canberra leagues.  We continue to encourage our members, both adult and junior, to compete for the club in all competitions/seasons.

The club has a junior coordinator for parents seeking to enter their children and help them understand the competition.  For adult members, we have a club captain who is responsible for all competition play and co-ordination, please contact the club captain if you are looking to enter team competitions with the club.

Contact details for our junior coordinator and club captain can be found in the CONTACT US section of our website.

Forrest Tennis Club – Pennant/League Court Availability

The club/committee provides the following courts and times for inter-club competition to FTC teams.  In theory, this is the maximum amount of court availability for such competitions.  However, in practice not all allocated time will be utilised, with only required courts being booked from season to season, whilst any un-booked courts are available for member use and regular bookings/play*.

*Note, the club/committee reserve the right to cancel bookings at any time, for unforeseen reasons such as: competition play, social play or maintenance issues.
