NBTC has 4 courts under lights and the capacity for 4 competition teams on each night (Mon-Thurs) each team having two courts.
The season just finished we had 8 of 11 teams make the finals in Blackburn & District Night Tennis Association (BDNTA). The Monday Ladies team lost in a semi-final as did the Section 3 Open. Of the four Tuesday teams, one lost in the semi-final and two won the grand-final. One of the two Wednesday teams made it to the semi-final but lost. The Thursday open team won their grand-final while one of the two singles/doubles teams lost in the semi-final. The next season starts the week of January 30th. We have 11 teams in again.
To be registered in a NBTC team you have to be a financial member of the club. Generally, you organise the composition of the team yourself, but we will endeavour to place individuals in teams where possible.
BDNTA runs two seasons per year, February to June and July to November. If you interested in playing call Rhonda McCaw, Night Tennis Co-ordinator on 9817 2940, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
