Spring weather is still upon us, with some moderate breeze. Makes for some interesting tennis and more strategic shots perhaps.  With a less damp summer predicted we can be certain of some fantastic tennis ahead. Dust off your summer skirts and shorts, purchase some new sunscreen, even treat yourself to a new hat! This summer is going to be top shelf at PLTC.

PLTC is ready and excited for Caro Bowl this Friday - tonight! This week starts off with an away game for the Women, and a home game for the Gentlemen. Come to the club to support our teams at the home games. See schedule at below. 

Also best of luck for all the Junior inter-clubbers who are beginning their season this weekend.



It has been noted a few times in the past,  PLTC has a strict NO DOGS policy on its property. After a very serious incident with a dog bite last year it is of crucial importance. We need to ALL be diligent and leave our furry friends at home.
