The club is delighted to announce the introduction of the inaugural "Warren Woodcock Junior Tennis Coaching Scholarship".
Over the next 12 months, each term a junior will be selected by the club to receive for that one term, a combination of group coaching combined with some intensive private tuition. The scholarship is to be awarded to a junior on the basis that they reflect the club's values of fairness, positive attitude and good sportsmanship, as well as displaying a persistent work ethic.
The Woodcock family who are sponsoring these four scholarships (to a combined annual value of $1,000), have enjoyed a long association with tennis, with Warren (Senior) having achieved a quarter final singles berth in the 1957 Australian Open and Warren (junior) having been the on-tour hitting partner for Ivan Lendl in the 1980's.

East Croydon Kilsyth Tennis Club offer plenty of competition tennis options - although during the current pandemic, all tennis activities and programmes have been deferred until later in the year. However when some normality eventually returns if you're not wanting to play tennis regularly in a team, then social tennis might be an option. Contact our Club Secretary to enquire further.
When it does eventually resume, social sessions will offer a great opportunity to play tennis and meet new people, without having to commit to regular competition.
We are a friendly, family oriented club that welcomes new members of all ages and abilities.
