Welcome to Carlton Gardens Tennis Club (CGTC)

The Carlton Gardens Tennis Club is one of Melbourne’s oldest and most charming tennis clubs, situated in the Royal Carlton Gardens within walking distance to the CBD. The club has four floodlit artificial grass courts, under towering elm and oak trees. The heritage clubhouse has been fully renovated with change rooms and a BBQ area. The courts are open to the public via the convenient book-a-court system.
