Loton Park Tennis Club is Having a Ball

Loton Park Tennis Club

Loton Park Tennis Club is going through some exciting developments. The building is going through $200,000 worth of renovations as well as playing host to some exciting up and coming events. Club President Doug Kirkwood told us all about what’s happening on the corner of Lord and Bulwer.

“We’ve had tremendous support from the City of Vincent, in particular John Carey, Mayor for the City of Vincent, he’s been extremely supportive of the club and we’ve been able to really see this project get kick-started through his support and his team as well, they’ve got a tremendous team that have been supporting us with the venture.” Doug said.

The club will also be hosting a number of events as the building is spruced up right in time for Pride season. “We’ve got quite a few things coming up,” Doug said.

The first event is an Open Day on October 25th to share the club’s new look with members. Visitors will be warmly welcome, with first timers able to check out the premises for free. There’ll also be social games of tennis and some Saturday afternoon drinks.

There’ll also be a special event for ladies who love ladies and tennis, in particular those two things at the same time. The Womens’ Sundowner is on October 31st starting at 6pm. Doug promises the evening is sure to deliver a good time:

“For the Womens’ Sundowner we have DJ Milly. Connections have come on board to support us and have offered free entry to any of the women that go to the Loton Sundowner event, there’ll be free entry between 11 and 12. Our event finishes at 11 o’clock, so get down to Connies afterwards.”

As the glimmering future of Loton Tennis Park draws ever forward, Doug said the club wishes to expand its leadership, but ultimately, its priorities remain the same.

“A couple of key focuses for the club is to try and build our female membership and focus on tennis. We are a tennis club and that’s what we’re here for, and that’s the common interest of all our members. We’ve got some more tennis events that we’re in the process of trying to coordinate.”
