Loton Park Tennis Club celebrates 100 years


Loton Park Tennis Club (LPTC) is busily preparing itself for their 2016/2017 season and this year they’re celebrating something very special! This season marks the 100 year Centenary of the club, making it one of the oldest run tennis clubs in Australia.

LPTC prides itself on being a friendly and open club that celebrates diversity, and has long been a special part of the LGBTIQ sporting and social community in Perth. Loton Park is a tennis club at heart and runs social and competitive play, but is also a great place to socialise and meet people.

In mid-late October Loton Park will open their grass-courts and officially commence the playing season. Anyone is welcome to head down to the club and get involved in a fun and welcoming day, which will include a BBQ, activities and, of course, tennis! In early December LPTC will celebrate the Centenary of the club and its long and important history with a formal day to mark the occasion, to be attended by politicians and dignitaries.


Then in January they are hosting Perth’s first Gay and Lesbian Tennis Alliance (GLTA) tournament, the Perth Lawn Tennis Championships, which is an international event and will attract players from far and wide. Add to these events there is weekend social tennis and various social sundowners and parties on the calendar – it’s set to be a fabulous year at Loton Park!

You can learn more about LPTC and become a member at lotonpark.com.au, and like their Facebook page to keep up to date with news and events at the club. Loton Park Tennis Club warmly welcomes new members of all playing levels and is conveniently located on the corner of Lord Street and Bulwer Street in Perth next to NIB Stadium.
