The founder of St Francis Bay, Leighton Hulett, built the first tennis court for his family and friends to enjoy the game!  Since then the club expanded to four courts, with two more in Cape St Francis.  Oyster Bay also has a very active tennis club, especially over the holiday seasons.

The St Francis Bay Tennis Club is on the corner of Assissi and St Francis Drive.  Anybody is welcome to play, just collect the key at the Filling Station (next to the filling station) where you pay R20 per player/hour and on social days R20 for the day’s play.  The club meets as follows:
