Practice Sessions

Improve your game

The UQ Tennis Club's popular Practice Program is back.  It will restart on 7 March, 2018.

The Practice Program will run on Wednesday Nights from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m.

N.B. There will be no Practice on 25 April as the Tennis Centre will be closing at 6 p.m. because of the Public Holiday.

What is provided?

Balls, courts and a program designed to help you improve your skills. The program may use ball machines.

What will I practice?
Drills will be run on different courts, covering all aspects of the game including backhand, forehand, volley, serve and overhead.

What is the cost?
$8 for Ordinary, Associate & Junior Members of the UQ Tennis Club.
$12 for all others (including Restricted Members of the UQ Tennis Club)

Parking?

Unfortunately, parking is not free on the UQ St Lucia Campus on weekdays.
Parking charges apply until 9 p.m. from Monday to Friday.  Parking inspectors come round most nights, usually around 8:30 p.m.
Parking costs $5 per day (or part thereof) along Sir William Macgregor Drive or $2.50 per hour along Blair Dr or in the UQ Centre carpark (near the swimming pool).  Parking in the new carpark under the Synthetic Playing Fields (next to the UQ Centre) is also $2.50/hr but is capped at $7.
Fines are around $65 (for parking in a designated parking area without a permit) or $130 for parking in a non-parking area (such as on yellow lines).  The University pursues unpaid parking fines through the courts.
A good option for regular players is an Off-Peak Annual Parking Permit. Apply for a vPermit here.

Do I have to pre-register?
No. Just check in on the night, in the Pro Shop (from 8 March onwards).

Can I come late or leave early? 

Yes, but the cost will still be $10, $12 or $15.

Will coaching be provided?
There will be no specific coaching sessions, but the coaches will be be able to give tips and advice. The UQ Tennis Centre Pro Shop has some great private and group coaching programs (Phone 3365 6933, E-mail tennis@uqsport.com.au).

The aim of this program is to put into practice what you have learnt from coaching.

Why come along?

It’s a chance to work on that shot that has always troubled you or regain some confidence after a lay-off. This is a great opportunity to experiment and challenge yourself to become a better player without the pressure of playing Fixtures.
