Illawarra Suburbs Lawn Tennis Association (ISLTA) was formed in 1911 and co-ordinates district tennis in the St George and Sutherland Shire areas.  

The name 'Illawarra' remains as it is a part of tennis history in the Sydney metropolitan area (even though the name is these days associated with the near south coast of the state).  

ISLTA is affiliated with the New South Wales Hardcourt Tennis Association and Tennis New South Wales, through which we are affiliated with Tennis Australia.  

Our headquarters at 71 Chapel Street ROCKDALE has 18 floodlit synthetic grass courts, a fully licensed club and a pro-shop for all your tennis needs.   Call Maureen or Graham Pearson in the pro-shop on (02) 9567 2307 for court bookings, lessons or equipment.

Competition tennis is organised by the Illawarra Tennis Association and is played on courts in the whole area, some at tennis centres and some on courts in private backyards.  We have many hundreds of registered competition players, which guarantees suitable competition for every standard.
Points of contact. The General Secretary of the Association is Jan Boldeman.   Jan can be be contacted on (02) 9523-9954 or honsec@islta.com.au.   Jan will be happy to assist you with association or adult tennis enquiries.    Enquiries about junior tennis should be made to Grahame Ross, Junior Competition JB President, on 0423 487 584 or jnrcomp.sec@islta.com.au.   Other committee and courts contacts can be easily found on this website.
