Memorial service / ‘celebration of life’ at Kooyong Tennis Club

Tomorrow Funerals is the only Melbourne funeral business to concentrate exclusively on memorial services. This means that we specialise in ‘celebrations of life’ at outstanding venues like Kooyong Tennis Court, where you can hold a really personalised memorial service.

Kooyong Tennis Club

We believe that planning a fitting memorial includes considering a location that matches the style and personality of the person’s life. Holding a memorial at the prestigious Kooyong Lawn Tennis Club is a great idea for the sports lover, someone with a connection to the club or simply those looking for first class facilities.

A ‘life celebration’ held at Kooyong Tennis Club is a more modern way to honour a loved one, compared to funeral at a funeral parlour. The club’s quality amenities ensure a ‘world class’ level of service. Kooyong has several impressive private event spaces overlooking the famous grass courts, which are treasured for their place in Melbourne’s sporting history.

How do we plan a funeral, or memorial service, at Kooyong Tennis Court?

At Tomorrow we specialise in ‘non-traditional’ memorial services, (meaning ‘outside of a church or funeral parlour.’) Our memorial events are also held after the cremation, without a coffin present.

Our funeral package includes a dignified cremation, an experienced Celebrant and a ‘stories bundle’ with lots of inclusions like a tribute video, a bound keepsake book and personal website dedicated to your loved one. The Tomorrow Funeral package is $6,800 and includes everything you need for the cremation and ceremony aspect.

This simple package works well with Kooyong’s Tennis Club’s own Memorial Package.

On top of that, your Tomorrow Funeral Celebrant will be there to help you every step of the way to book and liaise with Kooyong Tennis Club, if you need that kind of support. We will give you trustworthy support here, as we do not take any kind of commission when helping our clients book extra services they may require. We are not affiliated with the club (or any venue.) We simply believe in recommending the best suppliers.

Why should we choose Kooyong Tennis Club for a memorial?

Kooyong’s private terraces, overlooking the club’s picturesque grass courts and gardens are unique – a really special place to hold a memorial for a loved one.

Their private rooms are the perfect setting to hold a memorial service with a wake to follow – all in the one place. The spaces are beautifully appointed, cosy and filled with character. There are both smaller and larger rooms available.

For example, the Kooyong Room has stunning high vaulted ceilings, a marble bar and sweeping views of the historic courts and city skyline. This room is complemented by a large outdoor terrace and state of the art audio visual facilities, making this the perfect space to host a stylish memorial service.

Features of The Kooyong Room are:

  • Modern décor with an abundance of natural light
  • In-built Audio-Visual equipment
  • Specially tailored menus and wine lists
  • Use of the foyer with spectacular views
  • Private outdoor terrace overlooking Kooyong’s historic grass courts and Club gardens

Kooyong’s food and beverage packages are reasonably priced considering the very high standard of service. The team will support you in planning this important occasion with care and compassion.

Do I need to be a member at Kooyong, to book their event spaces?

You do not need to be a member to book a memorial style funeral at the Kooyong Tennis Club. We can assist with your booking and deal directly with the club, (at no additional cost to you) or you can manage the booking yourselves.

At Tomorrow we believe that creating a truly authentic funeral, one that represents your loved one is incredibly important. Knowing you have created something very special is a good feeling.
