There will be food, entertainment and a bar.  Registration opens May 9 and is expected to sell out fast.  Cost is $200 per team of 4, which includes the team entry and dinner. Social tickets are also available for $15 per person plus $5 for dinner. For more information or to register, click here.

Interested in volunteering for #LSN? We are looking for markers/jack setters, kitchen help and for someone with Smartserve.  Marker/jack setters will be helping the participants on the green and with scoring.

Welcome to the 2019 Season

You are invited to help kick off the season by joining us on Saturday, May 4 from 10 am until 2 pm for a tennis and bowls information and activity day (Open House).

For more information or to enter, call 519-802-7271 by Friday, May 3. Cost is $15 per person and includes balls, prizes and food. Two matches are guaranteed.

Bowlers, as some of you are aware, the club is no longer affiliated with the Ontario Lawn Bowl Association. This will not affect day to day bowls games. This has only reduced the number of tournament that the club hosts. We are the District 25's choice for hosting the Senior Summer Lawn Bowls competition May 30 and Lawn Summer Nights July 20 amongst other tournaments.

Finally, some of you may have noticed an increased presence of City of Brantford Parks and Recreation staff and vehicles at our club over the past year. Our new agreement with the city means that tennis and bowling is available freely to the public during non-programmed times. Your Dufferin Club Executive continues to work hard to bring you organized activities and lessons in prime evening and weekend times for a nominal club membership fee.

Dufferin Park Master Plan

The MBTW Group developed three concepts for the redevelopment of Dufferin Park and presented them to the community at a public meeting Tuesday, April 23. After which, there were roundtable discussions with further ideas and concerns brought forward. If you were not able to attend the meeting, or were at the meeting and thought some more about the proposed plans, the City of Brantford Park and Recreation would still like to hear from you!

What do you think the priorities should be for the park? What do you like about each of the design studies? Is there anything else you would like the design team to consider?

The three design concepts are displayed below. For more information, to view the site plans in more detail, or to provide feedback, please click here. Comments will be collected for two weeks and an additional concept will be presented to the public at a later date.
