A variety of social events take place every summer at Lawrence Park Tennis Club. Some feature a round robin as part of the fun, some give us a chance to catch up and relax with fellow members over refreshments. Members can look forward to regular social activities, including some dinners at the clubhouse, in addition to fun events to be held throughout the season.
Times and dates of these events are shared on our calendar and, as they approach, through our LPTC member newsletter, “Between the Lines”.
Any questions can be directed to our Social Director at Social@LawrenceParkTennisClub.ca.
