Nestor Notes

Thursday, August 13, 2015

Hi Everyone,

We are always trying to build our membership base to give everyone more playing options, and our online presence is a part of that. Please 'rate' us on google if you have 30 seconds to spare. Here is the link. Or simply google: 'tennis bedford'. In the box on the right-hand side of the page, click 'write a review'. Much appreciated!

After a successful launch last Friday, we will again run Social Night this Friday from 5-7pm. The idea is to have a bit of fun and meet players of a similar ability level. The cost is only $10 + tax and bring a couple of dollars extra for the BBQ and beverages :) Please register at the welcome desk so we can plan accordingly.

Kind Regards,

Gareth Dowdell
Assistant Manager - Programming and Operations

A reminder to all members that we will be closed on Canada Day (it's going to be 24 and sunny so get out there and enjoy the rays).

Resort Week

Wednesday, May 06, 2015

Since summer is silently making its presence felt around the HRM, here at DNTC we all began reminiscing about times spent in the beaming sun. And since most of us can't be in Florida or Jamaica right now, we wanted to do our best to bring the resort to you.

Resort Week at DNTC will take place June 8-12 and provide a true tennis getaway experience, all without the stress of packing, airport delays, and speeding cab drivers. You can register for a single session or the whole week. The choice is yours. Check out the schedule on our website here:

A big thank you to everybody that took part our first ever Club Champs last weekend. Congratulations to winners Chris Ryan, Therese Inkpen, Ernie Harnett, Stephen O'Neill, Maria Jackman and Tish Dunn. Your names are currently being inscribed on the DNTC Wall of Fame.

Programming Opportunities and Online Booking

Wednesday, April 08, 2015

When will this Winter end? By April I expected the birds to be chirping and everyone to have a spring (pun intended) in their step. Instead the crows are cackling down at us and the only steps we have are buried in snow.

DNTC is doing its best to spread some cheer while Old Man Winter mocks us:

-Cardio Tennis: Wednesday 12pm

-Born to Volley: Monday/Wednesday/Friday 1-2:30pm

-Beat the Pro: Wednesday 10am

-Feeding Frenzy: Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday 7pm, Thursday 7:30pm, Saturday 12pm

Many of you have already logged on to our online booking system. If you have any questions we have a FAQ page on our website. Check that out first and if you still need help contact me at

Good luck to everyone registered for the Master's Tournament this weekend!

As a massive Thank You to all the members who gave up their free time to help us, we will be holding a Member Appreciation Event on Saturday April 18 from 12pm-3pm. Put this in your planner now!

Next weekend beginning next Thursday (April 9-12) we will be hosting a Master's Tournament here at DNTC. Please register with Tennis Nova Scotia now. Events are: 30, 45, 55, 65 and there will be a Doubles sign up at DNTC also.

We will remain open throughout Easter Weekend. The only change will be that we will close early on Sunday at 6pm. All programming will resume as normal on Monday.
