Open Day 2021!

30.07.2021 00:00



We are always looking for new players of all ages and standards, please visit our contact page for further details on how to get in touch with us!

Our Open Day will be held on Sunday 22nd August 2020 from 11:00am until 1:30pm at NIEASS RESERVE TENNIS CLUB*, 40 Dinwoodie Avenue, Clarence Gardens (because our courts at Hope Ward are undergoing resurfacing before the season starts and will be temporarily unavailable). Open Day is a great opportunity for anyone interested in playing to come out and meet some of our members, have a casual hit of tennis and ask any questions about the Club and/or the competition. If you are thinking of playing we would love to see you, and we can guarantee a warm and friendly reception. There will also be a free sausage sizzle from 12 noon.
