S.D.T.C.’s HISTORY:

Established over 85 years ago, the club in its current form has operated continually since 1948, the St Dunstan’s Tennis Club (S.D.T.C) continues to function as an associated group connected with St Dunstan’s Anglican Church Parish, Camberwell.

During these years various groups including weekly mid-morning, Saturday social and coaching, have been connected with the courts.

S.D.T.C is open to all members and associates of the St Dunstan’s Community, along with ‘tennis keen’ residents of Camberwell and neighbouring suburbs, who are seeking to sharpen up or just play more regularly at a terrific outdoor facility.

FACILITIES:

In the early days, tennis was played on earth courts in Glyndon Road and later at Strathcona Girls’ Grammar school. The club has two en-tout-cas tennis courts – which were laid down during 1948 – commonly referred to as “show court” 1 & 2 (en-tout-cas looks like red powdery clayey-gravel). They sit privately at the rear of the St Dunstan’s property, amidst established gardens and trees, and next to the St Dunstan’s Kindergarten playground.

Both courts are available for all members to use throughout the week. (Except Sunday prior to 12 noon & during the existing organised Saturday afternoons socials between 2:00 pm until 5:30 pm).

Members take great care to regularly water, bag and sweep the courts – pre and post match, to ensure the grade of surface and surrounds remains suitable for ongoing competition play. In addition, an annual working bee is conducted (by members), to tidy and freshen up not only the courts, but associated surrounds.
