Note : Seniors, prior to 4/2/2018, can come for a run Mondays 6pm – 7.30pm at Casuarina Secondary College.


Due to increases in court hire and the inherent difficulty in following up Club fees, the Club is introducing mandatory Club fee payment in 2018.   This means when you register with the DBA you will need to pay the Club fee also.


The 2018 fees (1 fee for the entire season) are;

  • Juniors: $75
  • Seniors: $70 
  • League training fee: $40
