Island Bay Tennis and Squash Club turns 100 years old this year! This is a important milestone and a chance to celebrate amongst our special sporting community.

The club is marking the occasion with a day of celebrations on Saturday 18th October! There's a tournament from 3pm, a kids programme and a buffet dinner from 7pm. There'll be stories from past glory days, amusing memorabilia, and the change to browse club records from way back when.

All current and former members are welcome. If you know anyone who may be interested please suggest they register their interest with Kath Silvester, Tennis Club Captain on tennis@islandbaytsc.org.nz.

Other centenary events will be posted on the club's web page as they are confirmed.
