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 will be marking the occasion with a dinner on Saturday 18 October and all current and former members will be welcome. We are currently gathering names of past members that may like to attend the dinner so if you know anyone who may be interested please suggest they register their interest with Kath Silvester, Tennis Club Captain on

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

We would also appreciate having any old photos or newspaper stories relevant to the club – we have quite a few available but we’re sure there are more out there!
