as the weather warms up and the rain Might have stopped for a while, it’s time to fill up those weekends in the great outdoors.

Whether you have a group of friends ready to go or are looking to make a new one, tennis is a great way to get outside and get fit at the same time. Borrow a racket or buy one from Rebel Sports, and just get started.

Here are some courts all around Toowoomba that you can hire, including a few community freebies.

 
 

 
 

Toowoomba Regional Tennis Centre

Run by the USQ Student Guild, the Tennis Centre includes 12 outdoor courts with plenty of lighting. There are two competition fixtures, one on a Monday night and one on a Thursday night. These work out to be approximately $6/night, and you can play as a single or double. If you’d rather play tennis casually, you can sign up for a membership, which means you can play unlimited games for less than $10/week.

Where: The Clive Berghofer Recreation Centre, Darling Heights (opposite USQ)
Cost: $10/week for a membership
