Payment should be made in envelopes provided and placed into the money box which is just around the corner from the kitchen. Please mark the envelope with a name and date for our records. Please remind other users of the payment system. There is a Google Calendar booking system at http://northbalwyntc.org.au/nbtcfiles/courtcalendar.html or email us if you want to book a court.
Members are entitled to bring a non-member as a visitor up to 12 times in a year.
