Your club needs you – Newcastle Tennis Club AGM – Monday 2 March, 7pm

Newcastle Tennis Club is run on a volunteer basis – by members, for members. The more people involved in supporting the club in its decision-making, sporting and social activities, the better the club will be for the benefit of all.
