Play tennis and stay fit
Shaw Park Tennis Centre, located off Shaw Road in Wooloowin, is one of the best tennis centres in Brisbane and certainly the best in the northern suburbs. Featuring ten hard courts, it is a popular place for a whole range of tennis activities.

I generally go there for social tennis on Monday nights. For $17 you get to join two different coaching sessions to practice a variety of tennis techniques followed by an hour and half of social tennis. I also sometimes go to the Friday night social tennis which is just straight social tennis without the coaching.

They also have other social tennis times as well as the increasingly popular cardio tennis. This is a popular trend in tennis coaching. The goal is to keep your heart rate going for the hour of coaching while also practicing tennis and tennis related skills. It is a lot of fun for people aiming to increase their fitness while improving their tennis at the same time.

There are also classes and fixtures for all ages and of course you can just hire courts. Overall this is a great tennis centre with friendly and helpful coaches and staff and a reasonably priced shop.
