Court Card

We are introducing a new court card (thanks to a great idea from Harrison).
This card will be available for juniors and seniors to share with extended family and friends and will also be letterbox dropped for our immediate neighbours.
The card will give the holder the right to play at the club free of charge for one game per card. The card would then be put in the court hire box in place of money! This promotion will be available until November 30th 2020. It is hoped that we could open tennis up as an option for our community and in the longer term grow our membership. EXPIRES 30th NOV 2020



Anytime Fitness at 240 Colombo St have generously offered the Club a couple of 6 month memberships.
