Tennis

As far as can be established, the first two tennis courts were constructed in 1958 when two clay courts were built where the present court and the cricket practice nets are. Court No. 2 was in the position where the present hard court is, while Court No. 1 was at right angles to it.

At that time, George Cartherasu was Chairman, Board of Games. The Courts had no lighting. Consequently, no tennis was possible at night. Both courts had to be removed under circumstances no one expected. During the construction of a slip road between Balestier Road and Rangoon Road, a mound of earth was dumped beside the courts causing flooding during heavy rain. The courts were water-logged.

The tennis regulars played elsewhere until 1985 when a new court was ready for play, this time, complete with lights. Among the players at the time were N. Ponnudurai, Rene Sobrielo, George Cartherasu, K. Amirthasingam, Charles Kwek, Dr. V.M.S. Thevadasan, Gurmit Singh, Kuldip Singh, Anne Yee and Richway Ponnampalam.

The present tennis court was reconstructed at great cost and completed in 1999.

Plans have been made to conduct coaching clinics.
