Bareena Park, the hilltop tennis club among the trees
If you’re looking for a tennis club that’s exactly right for you … then come visit leafy Bareena Park. We are a social club and welcome players of all ages and standards of play.
Bareena’s tennis courts are open for play from 7am to dark every day of every week and a wide selection of special playing sessions enables you to play with people of all standards and to meet a wide choice of new friends from the Balgowlah, Manly and Northern Beaches tennis community.
Our head coach, Marc Dragan, holds classes for children every afternoon except Sundays during all school terms. The kids not only learn the game from the Manly-Balgowlah district’s best-known tennis coach, they too get to know many new friends.
Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 9 until lunch are very popular open-play days attended by 30 – 40 players at every session. Most of these members are retired but there’s also a sprinkling of young mum’s grabbing a set or two while the kids are at school.
Wednesday Mornings from 9am to 11am a lady’s social competition is held.
Wednesday evenings in summer are twilight tennis time, an increasingly popular session for anyone who rolls up to Bareena Park Tennis Club racquet in hand.
Saturday mornings are dedicated to kids again with Marc Dragan’s coaches organising the local junior comp matches. Saturday afternoons see the club team/s play their inter-club matches. Bareena plays in the Northern Beaches competition and we’re always seeking team recruits in the Balgowlah and Manly area.
Come Sunday mornings we have a special play session for A-level members, some of whom are very good, most of whom are more than competent, and all of whom think they are absolutely brilliant.
Courts may be booked at other times by phoning 0411 178 416.
Thinking of joining us? Just come along to one of our sessions, have a chat with members and check us out. Otherwise phone our Secretary/Manager Jeff Carroll on 0411 178 416 who will be please to assist.
