Squad sizes are tailored to each age group – eg, kids at different ages will have either four, five or six players (max) per court/coach.


Racquets & equipment

We require each child enrolled for squads or lessons to have their own racquet. Our staff can advise you about this.


Please note: enrolment for any new term must be received by email no later than the final week of the preceding term (see below details regarding late enrolment). Eastcourts reserves the right to cancel any squad due to lack of numbers, or for any other reason.

Junior Squads: 2020 Term 1
Monday 3 February - Sunday 12 April (10 weeks)

  • Enrolment Information

    In the event of two (or more) washouts of a squad in one term due to rain, students receive a credit for one free day of tennis camp, to be used in the following school holidays – this credit is transferable to a friend or sibling. Please note: for any term that includes a Public Holiday (typically a Monday), kids enrolled for squads on that day will receive a tennis camp credit if they have one rain washout.

  • Late Enrolments

    Children are welcome to join our squads anytime that there’s space available; however, as courts & coaches are allocated from Week One of term, there is a small loading payable for enrolments after Week One. For Weeks Two to Five, a loading of 10% applies; for Weeks 6-10 a 15% loading is added. (eg, if the 10-week term fee for your squad is $275, enrolling in Week Six will cost 5 x $27.50 + 15%).
