Our Committee

 

The Melbourne University Tennis Club operates on a volunteer basis. Committee members donate their spare time to maintain and improve the club for the benefit of the wonderful community at and around the university. We pick the most amazing people to be a part of our passionate team.


Interested to join?

Fill out the application form at the bottom of this page and we'll reach out to you to have a chat. Our doors are always open to welcome new people into the committee. You don't have to play tennis in order to be a part of the crew! You just have to know how tennis works. 🎾

 

Executive Team

WE TAKE CARE OF THE TOP LEVEL BUSINESS.

If you are looking for inspiration, you have come to the right place! The executive team manages roles around the club and makes sure that all departments are running smoothly. We encourage individualism as well as teamwork, and we push team members to be the best version of themselves. We make sure that our members are at the centre of every decision that the club makes.

Junaid Hossain

COMPETITIONS COORDINATOR

When you look at Junaid's muscles, you think about Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, although that match-up might be a little unfair towards The Rock. Junaid handles our competitions like a boss... partly because that's his responsibility.
