“Northbridge Tennis Club is a very unique club with some great traditions. We celebrated our 90th anniversary in 2016 and have every intention of being around in another 90 years! The Club has three all weather synthetic grass courts and some great club facilities. We love our tennis and want to continue to see it grow through a close association with Tennis Australia and becoming even more involved in the Northbridge community by offering programs such as school tennis camps and social tennis events. Come and take a look and enjoy some fabulous tennis or maybe get some personal or group coaching in some beautiful surroundings.” – Clive Wilkinson, President, Northbridge Tennis Club
