The club's competitive tennis is well-organized and social. The Neutral Bay tennis teams play the Autumn Badge and Spring Northern Suburbs tennis competitions. The club works hard to ensure its tennis members enjoy their competitive tennis and, if they wish, have the opportunity to play it throughout the year. The club's policy is to run squads of six when four players are required for a match and squads of four when three players are required. Competition members generally play two out of every three weekends during the competitive seasons.
New members wishing to play competition tennis are generally asked to play a grading doubles with the Tennis Captains, either during Tuesday social tennis or at the weekend. This is to ensure they are placed in the team most suited to their level. For those possessing a recent Badge or NSTA grading, this is usually not necessary.
