Special offer for new members


susancSunday, 16 October 2016 - 5:19pm

November is an ideal time to join the North Arm Cove Tennis Club.  The weather is often perfect for tennis, not too hot and not too cold.  A family membership is only $40 and entitles the parent, the children, the grandchildren and partners to play for a court hire fee of only $4.00 an hour.  This has got to be the best deal from any tennis club in Australia. Why not join up so you're ready to play when the family visits over the holidays.

And, as a special incentive to join up during November, each new membership, family or single, will be given a complimentary tin of balls.  Call the tennis phone on 0427 276 718 to join the club or book a court.

Minutes of the recent General Meeting follow.
