Founded in 1891 the Grafton City Tennis Club boasts world class facilities: 12 hardcourts (7 Plexipave & 2 Synthetic Grass courts).

The extraordinary ability, expertise and commitment of our coaching staff to foster and develop exceptional juniors has resulted in 12 tennis students gaining scholarships with prestigious colleges in the USA.  Our coaching staff are always enthusiastic, positive and encouraging to all our students.

Under the direction of Phil Beckman, The GCTC is poised to develop players who aim to specialise in providing scientifically designed practices that involve intense workouts in the development of ball striking, footwork and strategy. We offer drills, fitness, match play, profiling and tournament mentorship. The Junior Tennis Academy’s methodology not only develops impeccable technique but also teaches our athletes how to WIN.

We believe to become an excellent tennis player requires hardcore drilling, as well as a fun practice. It requires tournament and match play experience, fitness, private lessons and profiling. Each part of this total development is equally important.
