Welcome to the Doutta Galla Tennis Club
We are a Tennis Club in North Essendon, Melbourne, Australia. The club is an official affiliate of Tennis Victoria.
All members are encouraged to subscribe to our Online Newsletter, eBaseline, to be kept up to date with all of the club's latest news.
The Club’s Christmas Party is this Saturday the 6th of December from 6:30pm at the Club House. All Members are welcome to attend for a final catch up before the end of the year.
Also on the night the Club Champions will be presented with their trophies and there will be a Juniors Presentation for the Junior teams.
The Club will provide a barbecue along with some beer and snacks. Members are asked to bring their own Wine, Soft Drink or any other drinks as well as a plate to share. A racquet would also be handy if you want to have a hit.
The committee looks forward to seeing everyone there.

Thanks to all of the Members who came down to assist with the Club’s Working Bee two weekends ago.
The club is looking great: the Kitchen and inside the Club was cleaned thoroughly; the Garden was weeded and cleaned; the club’s surroundings cleaned and a great deal of sand was placed back on the courts.
The assistance of those that attended was greatly appreciated.
