About

Hurstbridge Tennis Club was first formed in the early 1900's, with the courts, originally positioned in Graysharps Road, being officially opened in 1922. 

In the 1980's the club was relocated to its current site in Ferguson's Paddock, where it sits adjacent to historic Allwood House.

Initially two hard courts were constructed at Ferguson's Paddock, alongside a rudimentary clubhouse shed.


Today we are proud to offer four fantastic synthetic courts in conjunction with charming clubrooms and well-established grounds incorporating a children's playground and BBQ facilities - all surrounded by lush picturesque bushland.


Competition and social tennis is available for men, women, mixed and juniors. There are also numerous coaching sessions and fitness opportunities on offer.

Meet Our President

Luke Franklin

I've been associated with the Hurstbridge Tennis Club all of my life, where my dad was also President and pivotal in the establishment of the site we have today. I have played as a junior and senior in both mixed and men's tennis competitions.

Following my schooling at Diamond Valley College, I pursued teaching which subsequently led me to work in many local schools, most notably Hurstbridge Primary School where I taught as both a Physical Education specialist, and general classroom teacher, for several years.

Currently I am an Assistant Principal at Rosanna Golf Links Primary School, and play tennis in the Tuesday Night Men's competition. Both of my young kids along with my wife are also involved in tennis at Hurstbridge.

If you have any questions or feedback, please don't hesitate to reach out.
