On Thursday 10 October, the Keysborough Tennis Club was presented with the Top 50 Club award for 2019 by Tennis Victoria.
Ranking 39 out of over 900 clubs in Victoria, the Keysborough Tennis Club is the first tennis club in the City of Greater Dandenong to receive a Top 50 Club award.
The award was presented by Ruth Holdaway, the CEO of Tennis Victoria. Representing Keysborough Tennis Club was Phillip Horsburgh (president), Ailsa Williams (secretary), Neil Cooper (treasurer), Lisa Fitzgerald (head coach) and Lilie Cooper (club’s systems expert).
The award is based on the number of players registered at the club including casual Book-a-Court players and recognises the significant contribution the Keysborough Tennis Club has made to the sport of tennis.
The Keysborough Tennis Club has grown significantly since 2015/2016 when it first introduced the Book-a-Court system with its membership base growing from 225 to 588 members and a casual player list of 330 non-members.
Keysborough Tennis Club was the first tennis club in the City of Greater Dandenong to introduce the online Book-a-Court system, which allows both members and casual players to book courts at the club both during the day and at night-time under lights by use of a code at the entry keypad.
Currently, the club is piloting the Clubspark program, one of 17 clubs being chosen throughout Australia by Tennis Australia. The program allows online bookings for special events and activities at the club as well as being able to pay for memberships online.
