Tennis Open Day this Sunday!

It's the start of the season and to mark it we have our annual free Open Day this Sunday from 1–4pm. There will lots to do and plenty of people to catch up with, plus there will be a sausage sizzle, the bar will be open, and there will be new rackets to demo ... all you need to do is grab someone you want to introduce to the club and bring them along. We're lucky that we have one of the most salubrious club environments around, and this is a great opportunity to share with anyone who might be looking for a great club with some attractive benefits to join — squash, gym, sauna, bar, lots of events and programmes, not to mention the best summer afternoon deck in town ... Plus, if you need to bribe, any new members from Open Day get an $80 coaching credit. See you there +1!


So far weather looks like it should be good, but if there is rain around in the morning check for cancellation info by midday on Sunday.
