Clothing & Equipment Box

Do you have any outgrown tennis/sports clothes or tennis racquets? Keystone Tennis are starting a 'CLOTHING & EQUIPMENT BOX'.
The aim; to make participation in junior tennis more accessible by removing barriers for new and existing players.

Children can grow very quickly so, we're asking anyone that has any outgrown items (tennis/sports clothing or tennis racquets) to donate them to the Box. This Box will then provide families the option to access items for next to nothing. Next, 100% of funds raised will then be turned into grants for juniors to access a term of community coaching helping students gain confidence to commence club based competition.

Items can include; Tennis skirts, Hats/Caps, Sports shorts, Sports polos, Tennis singlets (girls), Tennis racquets (all sizes) & Non marking sports shoes.

To donate, the Box will be located at near court 19 from 3pm Monday 18th April. You can place any items into the Box and we will then sort them and have them available term three.

2016 Winter Squad
An inclusive squad voluntarily coordinated by Keystone Tennis and open to students throughout the Goulburn Region. The squad provides an opportunity for keen players to train with others throughout the cooler months then compete in Bendigo once a month (tournament dates below). In 2015, the squad from Shepparton (& surrounds) won the overall championship and has previously also had a lot of success.

The squad series is administered by Bendigo Tennis Association. In 2015, the Shepparton (& surrounds) squad was very near capacity (40 juniors) and already a few new players have expressed interest to participate so, you just need you to secure your spot asap so, you don't miss out. Age groups at each tournaments, are > 10/u, 12/u, 14/u, 16/u & 18/u. Tournament formats are round robin in nature and players are guaranteed a minimum of three matches per tournament. If 160+ players enter a tournament these tournaments may change from a singles event to a doubles event. A & B grade pools in each age group will be offered by Bendigo Tennis Association, providing an opportunity for juniors of all standards to be involved!

Tournaments will run once a month with all squads invited. If you cannot participate in a tournament that's OK, you just need to email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it the Tuesday prior to the tournament so, your entry can be withdrawn with the Bendigo Tennis Association. The cost of each tournament is $10pp (payable on the day) to Bendigo Tennis Association.

Tournament dates are scheduled for:
22 May, 9am
19th June, 9am
24th July, 9am
21st August, 9am
11th September, 9am (invitational final)
Squad training has previously been on a Sunday morning at McEwen Reserve. However; based on feedback provided by the majority of 2015 squad members, the preference is to utilise the existing midweek squad structure with Keystone Tennis. Therefore; training in 2016 will be held at Shepparton Lawn Tennis Club after school on Fridays.
