    About Lance Sawyer
    Tel: 074 067 0368

    Lance joined Gardens Lawn Tennis Club in 2014.  He’s been playing tennis for 35 years and represents South Africa in tennis.  He spends most of his day coaching on the tennis court and has been a coach for 15 years.   His love for tennis really shines through when you look at how he is with his students and how committed he is in the improvement of their game.  He is a great addition to our club.

Tennis is a perfect combination of violent action taking place in an atmosphere of total tranquility.

  • Home away from home

    Jess Verheul,

    GLTC is like a home away from home or a family away from my family for me. The people are so incredibly welcoming and friendly it feels like I never left my home club in Joburg. They also know how to and the fool. Loads of fun socials and just the best place to spend your time (if you have any spare :)).

  • Friendly. Homely.

    Doreen Myburgh,

    A feeling of love & care as well as the force of competition & leagues -  that is what you find here – you have wonderful choices of playing midweek social tennis, midweek ladies league matches, coaching by our competent resident coach & the fabulous Saturday league matches that cater for all. Views that are breath taking as well as the beauty of De Waal Park greet you at every visit.

  • The place to be

    Alexa Servante,

    If you are looking for a tennis club with a good balance of social and more competitive league tennis, then GLTC is the place to be.  The only problem is when you are on court the magnificent view of Table Mountain can be extremely distracting. Having played tennis all over the world, I challenge anyone to find a more beautiful location!

    Shani van der Merwe,
