GRADS Members’ Special Interest Groups

The Club depends on the members’ input for all our activities. Events in our monthly Newsletter are all put on by GRADS Members. Some are regular and are repeated each month and others are one-off, prompted by different member ideas.

If you have a special interest outside of the regular events in our Newsletter, you can informally contact one of our members.

To start off we have Bush walking;  Cycling; Dancing: Rock n Roll, Swing, Ceroc; Golf mid-week;  Open Gardens, public & private; Theatre; Travel.

We aim to build on this range of special interests from members input.  

Regular Events

Every Sunday - TENNIS – 2 pm to 4 pm, Cammeray
