Winter and summer alike the tennis group meets to play tennis every Friday from 10:00 – 12:00. In summer we are outdoors enjoying the glorious sunshine, and in the winter we play indoors. Needless to say, it is always a very international group. We usually have twelve players often representing as many as nine countries.

Even though there is a fairly regular turnover of players we manage to keep up a good standard of play – and above all have plenty of fun.

After our hard work on the courts most of the group find time to stay on for a refreshing drink and, most important of all, a chat! We get to know each other well in this special time off the court, and we treasure these friendships as well. We also enjoy gathering together for potluck lunches at members’ homes on special occasions.

The outdoor/summer season started in May 2015. As in previous summers, we are playing at Nikolassee TC, Spanische Allee. Please contact the coordinators if you are interested in playing tennis or require any further information. If you are unsure of your level of tennis, you are welcome to come along for a free session. Unfortunately we cannot accommodate beginners.
