VicTennis LGBTIQ+ Hard Court Championships (GLTA Sanctioned)
September 23-25, 2022

As the winter cold leaves us, we return to the Melbourne hard courts to celebrate Spring and the AFL Grand Final Weekend playing at Albert Reserve Friday 23 to Sunday 25 September.

We have all gender singles and doubles draws and women’s singles draws. A staple of the VicTennis calendar, events do have a history of selling out early so make sure to sign up early to secure your place.

Lunch is provided on all three days with a players party on the Saturday night.

Volcanic triumph

It was an explosive end to our Monday night competition with the Volcanoes triumphing over Racq Pacq!
While Melbourne's familiar rain clouds continued to threaten a washout for the second week in a row, the courts stayed dry much to the joy of our finalists.
There was nothing to split the two teams after the first four sets, however in the second round of matches the Volcanoes were able to break away and never look back - winning 6 of the final 8 sets to produce an 8-4 victory.
Star performers on the night were Garth Ebelthite, Matt Prince and Wayne Zabel who each went undefeated throughout the night for the Volcanoes.
Congratulations to the Volcanoes who never left the top two places on the ladder all competition on their way to victory and also to Racq Pacq who were able to shake off a slow start in the rounds to surge all the way to the final.
With temperatures dropping, our next competition is planned to begin in late August. Keep your eyes out for registrations as the date draws closer.
