History

The Bridgewater Tennis Club has a very rich history. Established in 1890, it is the second oldest tennis club in Canada. The summer of 2018 marked 128 years of continual recreation for the residents of the town and surrounding communities. From its inception this club has allowed local residents to develop and compete or just enjoy a social recreational game.
