The Rosendal Tennis Club invites all visitors to come and play on Saturday afternoons from 2pm o. Farmers, artists, other locals and visitors play very relaxed, non-competitive tennis on our well-maintained courts. We have a well-stocked bar, and sport events are shown on the big screen inside our rustic clubhouse. Braai facilities are available, and the locals will prove to be an entertaining source of information about the village and its surroundings. New balls are provided on Saturdays, but not during the week. Appropriate clothing and shoes must be worn at all times. Racquets are available free of charge.

Once-off fees: Adults R50, Under 16 R30
Monthly: Adults: R200
