Kelvin is proud to be associated with various National and International Tennis Tournaments and events.

The Club has eleven tennis courts including five floodlit courts and one practise court. Courts may be reserved through the Reception office, or members can also book online through the clubs online booking system. Two courts are kept free at all times for general play. If there is a demand for these courts, they must be vacated at the end of each set.

Social tennis is played every first Sunday of each month. For more information contact the Tennis Chairperson. Details are available from Reception. Tennis balls may be purchased from the reception office.
