Mannum Tennis Club

History

Mannum Tennis Club was first founded by our pioneering families including Captain William Arnold , back in circa 1880 , where a social but competitive game was regularly played on a basic hard court on Esmeralda Street , near where the Mannum Hospital stands.

From these early beginnings , Tennis has been played on a variety of local courts , up until the 1980’s when the current Tennis Court precinct was built and consolidated. It was then that the Mannum Tennis Club became an Incorporated body and the number of people playing Tennis in our town really grew.

Six concrete Tennis courts were established , situated adjacent the Town Football oval on Belvedere Road Mannum and shortly thereafter, a humble but effective Clubroom was erected by local Tennis club volunteers .This Clubroom still stands today , complimented by several small extensions and internal additions , together with 2 substantial shelter sheds overlooking the Courts for spectator comfort.

Traditionally , the Club has provided teams to compete on Saturdays , in both Junior and Senior ranks and has always fielded competitive teams of players from as far as Walker Flat , Palmer , Bow Hill and of course the good towns folk of Mannum.


Today

Mannum Tennis Club provides a friendly and safe sporting environment for competition Junior Tennis players as young as 7 years old , through to the Senior Competition for 18 year old up to the over 70’s !! As long as you can still see the ball and swing !!

Currently Mannum Tennis Club has 4 junior teams and 3 senior teams competing in the Lower Murray Hardcourt Association , plus a healthy Social night non- competition on Wednesday nights throughout the year.

Mannum regularly features in the Finals each year and consistently provides quality opposition to the other teams in the LMHTA , winning many Premierships and pennants over the years.

In 2010 our club provided the Association Junior player of the Year - Dale Strauss , the Association Senior Mens 2010 Player of the year- Phil Kroehn and the Association Senior Womens 2010 Player of the Year – Tracy Loechel.
