We are an 8 court complex consisting of 7 synthetic grass courts and a classic clay court, 4 Hot Shots courts (courts specifically for young children) and a club house.

We are located at the end of Brownlee Place, Melba, next to the Melba District Oval. See map of club location.

Club Membership

The Melba Tennis Club encourages all members of the ACT community who are interested in utilising the courts and facilities to become financial members of the club. Members do not pay court hire fees, excluding light hire, and are entitled to use the courts, clubhouse and facilities at any time.

We actively promote intra-club activities to encourage members to socialise and form a network of contacts within the club. In essence our goal is to actively promote a sense of community within our members.

For information about becoming a member (or renewing your membership) and details of membership fees, see membership and fees
