Centenary Tennis Clubs
Royal King’s Park Tennis Club (RKPTC) is a member of the Association of Centenary Tennis Clubs (CTC) comprising more than seventy of the most presitgious tennis clubs in the world, all with over a century of international events.
We draw members attention to the green “CTC” banner adjacent to the main entrance. This and the plaque placed in the entry foyer signify that Royal Kings Park Tennis Club has been granted membership of The Association of Centenary Tennis Clubs.
Members are encouraged to view so much of our tennis history and culture on display in the Members’ Pavilion behind the centre court.
All members, including Next Generation ACE members who join RKPTC (via a simple no-cost application form) have the opportunity to visit and enjoy the facilities of many of these clubs when travelling interstate or overseas via RKPTC’s Reciprocal Agreements with them. There are some 70 CTC clubs around the world – in places such as London, Dublin, Paris, New York, Boston, Newport, Toronto, Barcelona, Berlin, Delhi, Frankfurt, Johannesburg, San Francisco and many other great cities.
