Access to clubhouse

Access is by security card. Contact membership secretary Peter McCaw if you have not received instructions on access and use of the clubhouse.

Court lights and visitor's fees

To help pay the cost of electricity and the not insignificant cost of replacement of globes and electrical gear, we require members to pay $10 per court hour for court lighting. 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. The charge for visitors is $5 per visit and the visitor should be signed in by the club member in the visitor's book and the payment made in an envelope in the money box. Please gently remind anybody who does not seem to be aware of this rule.

Smoke-free children's recreational areas
Under the Tobacco Act 1987 smoking is prohibited within 10 metres of outdoor public children’s playground equipment, skate parks and sporting venues during organised underage sporting events. This includes training or practice sessions to prepare for an organised underage sporting event, and breaks or intervals during the course of the event, training or practice session.
