The six high-quality all-weather tennis courts at the Pretoria Country Club are situated next to the Club’s beautiful lake and are surrounded by lawns, flower beds and trees. A more beautiful setting is hard to imagine. Bird life and a few guinea fowls add to the charm of the environment. Four floodlit courts provide the opportunity to play tennis after sunset. And after a good session of social tennis, what better way to relax than with a cup of tea or beer in the tennis kiosk.
Tennis players are exempt from paying the loyalty fee and only pay R 250.00 entrance fee. The tennis committee controls the affairs of the tennis section. For those interested in competitive tennis, the committee arranges the annual club championships, various round robin tournaments and the annual veterans tournament.
