Carlton Gardens Tennis Club

The Carlton Gardens Tennis Club (CGTC) 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 LED-floodlit artificial-grass courts, under towering elm and oak trees. The heritage clubhouse has been fully renovated with change rooms, kitchen and a BBQ area. The courts are open to the public via the convenient book-a-court system.

The club respectfully acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the land, the Bunurong Boon Wurrung and Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung peoples of the Eastern Kulin Nation and pays respect to their Elders past, present and emerging. We’re privileged to play on the lands they have cared for and nurtured over tens of thousands of years.
