Melbourne Tennis Month

Eildon Park Tennis Club, in conjunction with Musta, Tennis Victoria and Knox City Council, is excited to announce a new participation initiative called ‘Melbourne Tennis Month.’

Melbourne Tennis Month provides a calendar of FREE tennis events during the month of February.  Last year, 743,667 people attended the 2018 Australian Open at Melbourne Park and we see this as an incredible opportunity to encourage returning and new participants to get on court.

We would like to invite you, your friends, family and neighbours to get involved.  Whether you’ve regained the motivation to get back on court after a break from the game, looking to try a new sport, want to get your kids / family into coaching, or simply want more information about other ways to get involved, below is all the information you need.

When: All throughoutFebruary 2019

Types of events:  Social, cardio, hot shots, coaching and “meet and greet” sessions for competition tennis

More information:, scroll down and press “Register”, then scroll down and type “Eildon Park Tennis Club” to see a list of all the free events being run through February.

Sponsorship: Bendigo Bank

Bendigo Bank Sponsorship of Eildon Park Tennis Club

Dear Member,

As recently advised and announced at our recent Annual General Meeting, Eildon Park Tennis Club has established a sponsorship arrangement with our bank; Bendigo Bank (Ferntree Gully & Rowville branches) for the installation of LED lights on courts 4, 5 & 6; our “show-courts”

With the forthcoming installation of LED lights on courts 1, 2 & 3, the performance of the present lights on courts 4, 5 & 6 will soon be highlighted as very inadequate.

Given the significant cost of upgrading the lights on courts 4, 5 & 6, which will include removal of the existing 4 high poles and installation of 12 new lower poles, the EPTC Committee has realised that to achieve this goal, the Club embarked on this exciting new relationship with the Bendigo Bank that we trust will bring mutual benefits to our Members, our Club and the community.

The Bendigo Bank is willing to support these initiatives with substantial seed funding should it receive support from EPTC Members. This support is simply by banking with them, by considering switching your home loans, personal loan, business banking and/or credit cards to Bendigo Bank.

We believe you may well benefit from an introduction to the principals of the Ferntree Gully & Rowville Bendigo Bank branches.  This introduction to Bendigo Bank comes with no obligation to switch your banking arrangements, just an opportunity to meet and have a conversation about your specific needs and how Bendigo Bank may be able to assist you.

We hope you are willing to participate and look forward to achieving our goal for new LED lights on courts 4, 5 & 6.

Should you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact either Leanne Siwes ( or me.


Thank you for your support of this initiative.

Helping out Special Needs Schools

On Friday the 14th of September Eildon Park Tennis Club hosted special needs schools organised by Tennis Victoria.  All the courts were utilised with 70 children attending and playing Hot Shot tennis. Thanks to AJ and his team, the program was very well run with lots of fun for the children, and we finished with a sausage sizzle.  Additionally, it was great to hear that the schools were so thrilled with the program that they’re committed to return for another event. The staff from Tennis Victoria thanked our tennis club for providing our facilities which we were only too happy to provide. Eildon Park Tennis Club have secured further funding to be able to continue our Hot Shot programs with children with autism and coaching by AJ and his team. As a club we are proud to be able to make a contribution to the community and especially to children with special needs.
