Established over 85 years ago and has operated continually since 1948, (71 years ago) 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.
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. 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 (excluding Sunday prior to 12 noon & during the organised Saturday afternoon social). Tennis lessons are held on Saturday mornings.
Members take great care to regularly water, bag and sweep the courts – pre and post-match, to ensure the grade of the 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.
SATURDAY AFTERNOON SOCIAL:
The longest established playing group at S.D.T.C – “Saturday afternoon Social”. The Saturday afternoon format comprises of an informal – but competitive, gathering of mixed standard players, who all enjoy the game!!

Sound friendships, enjoyable social gatherings and a fondness for a competitive hit are core foundations for this group. New players are always very welcome. Feel free to call in on Saturday and don’t forget your racquet!!
