Social Serve launches in the North Shore (for the first time ever)

Cool Sh*t, Play / November 17, 2019

Say hello to the start of summer with a giant serving of cocktails, live tunes and social tennis.

On Saturday 23rd November how will you be spending your day? Will you be socialising, playing tennis while drinking cocktails accompanied by some damn good beats? You must be going to Social Serve’s first-ever North Shore summer launch party. From 3:00 pm to 9:30 pm at Manly Tennis Club, be immersed in the fun and frivolity of this fun, social event.

With tickets starting at $19+bf, your ticket includes entry to the event, with access to a delicious spread of cocktails in the afternoon sunshine. Expect refreshing beverages including Aperol SpritzArmani, Fever Tree, Pressman’s Cide, Perrier, Sydney Beer Co. and Poor Toms Gin as well as gourmet eats for spectators and players alike. Plus, stick around for Social Serve’s famous after party to celebrate your wins on the court.

Your attendance at this affair achieves much more than memories of decadence. All raffle profits raised will be donated to Primary Club – a charity dedicated to providing access to sport for people with disabilities. In Australia, only 21% of females and 28% of males with disabilities partake in sufficient levels of exercise. An important aspect of life for all individuals. Co-founder Iain Boyd believes that if they need to “pump some tunes and pour some drinks” to raise awareness than that’s what they’ll do. Regardless, the Social Serve leads to a “bloody good afternoon” in his opinion.

It doesn’t matter if you are a pro or a first-timer, Social Serve will have roars of laughter echoing across the nets. You can bring the whole gang (as many as you want), or stride in solo to be paired off with someone matching your tennis skill set on the day. No racquet? No worries. Racquets will be available for hire from the venue. Slip into your most impressive activewear, or create even more laughs on the day and play dress up with a ‘traditional’ tennis ensemble of white on white accompanied by a visor. See you there!
