Loton Park Tennis Club is officially a grass court tennis club with 6 well maintained grass courts and 2 flood-lit hard courts. Our grass court season typically takes place between October and June. In the down season, while the grass courts are closed for maintenance, play continues on the hard courts (weather permitting). Because most of our courts are grass, our main playing season operates from about early October to June each year – the exact dates depend on the weather and the state of the courts.
We are located on the corner of Lord and Bulwer Streets in East Perth which is in the City of Vincent – a local government area on the edge of the city.
The 8 tennis courts and clubhouse are leased from the City of Vincent and we are responsible for the operation and maintenance of the Club. A professional grounds keeper is employed to keep the grass courts in great condition.
Loton Park changed its constitution in 1995 to be inclusive of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (glbt) people.
Our motto: Diversity is our Advantage.
We are not exclusively GLBT – we don’t ask! We just expect people to be relaxed and accepting of diversity.
We provide organised social tennis (doubles and mixed doubles) on Saturdays from 1pm until about 5pm, and twilight social tennis on Wednesdays 5pm til sundown (November – March).
We also have a variety of teams competing in TennisWest Tennis League competitions.
