Over 35 and interested in tennis?

 

Welcome to the world of seniors tennis, where our mission is to increase the playing opportunities and social interaction for tennis players of all standards over age 35.

 

Seniors tennis in Australia is booming.  Seniors tennis competitions are played in all Australian States and up to 1000 players compete each year for the Teams Trophy at the Australian Tennis Championships.  In the individual Championships, players compete for the honour to represent Australia at the 16-team ITF Cup World Championships.

 

Why is Seniors Tennis so successful?

 

Tennis is a sport that we can play for a lifetime however, as one player said "it's always nice to play someone your own age".  Seniors tennis competitions are divided into five-year age groups starting at 35 years.

 

If you ever needed inspiration to get off the couch and pick up a racquet, you need go no further than our more senior players.  Australia currently has some of the best octogenarian tennis players in the world, with Doug Corbett (pictured) the 2013 World Champion in the 85+ age group.
