Our Association

We are Eastwood Thornleigh District Tennis Association Inc (ETDTA Inc), trading under the registered business name of North West Sydney Tennis, introduced in 2021.

We have a rich tennis history in the area dating from 1923 and are a community based not for profit organisation that manages two tennis centres, Epping and Pennant Hills Park Tennis Centres. These centres are leased by us from Parramatta City Council and Hornsby Shire Council. Both councils are our long term supporters and partners, ensuring that the facilities are up to date, well maintained and affordable community tennis centres for use by our communities.

Our Association is run by a very dedicated and tennis knowledgeable Council of Management, who are volunteers with a love of community and tennis, as well as staff that run the day to day operations and assist in continuing the ongoing development of the association.

Our Epping complex has three floodlit courts, and is located in the David Scott Reserve at Epping, providing an accessible and family friendly facility with club house and council fenced children's playground.

Set in picturesque Pennant Hills Park, our main tennis complex has 16 floodlit courts, presenting a wonderful opportunity for families to enjoy their tennis in a truly natural setting. The park is an extension of the Lane Cove National Park, and many of the nearby trails provide access to the natural wonders of this important community reserve.

Our Association offers a range of tennis opportunities so all players and those wanting to learn the game of tennis, from children to adults, can join us. We offer for those more experienced, a range of competitions and social formats across junior and adult competitions. As one of the larger complexes in North West Sydney and with the great facilities we host not just our local social and competition formats and court hire, but a variety of tournaments and offerings through Tennis NSW, NSW Hardcourt, InterdistrictTennis NSW Seniors (over 30's), and Juniors through our Saturday Morning Juniors, and a variety of formats specifically for our up and coming generation.

We encourage professional coaching at both of our centres and invite the coaches to engage with the Association. The coaches support the programs we offer - competitions and social formats which helps students to further develop their skills. This not only improves their tennis, but also engages them in the great Australian tradition of supporting local club culture through a continuing love of the game of tennis.

The Association has over the years developed the written story for generations to come and is currently updating it as we reach our 100 year celebrations.
