Manly-Warringah Tennis Association (MWTA), was formed in 1921 with the first president being Arthur Little (President 1921-1934). In 1992, when Pittwater Council was established as a separate local government area from Warringah, the name Tennis Northern Beaches was adopted as a trading name only. The area covered Manly, Warringah and Pittwater local government districts. The association’s boundaries stretched from Balgowlah Heights/ Clontarf to Palm Beach and to Terrey Hills and the Roseville Bridge at Killarney Heights. Since the 2000’s, the club activity shifted northward and no longer centred just around Manly. The largest club memberships were held by Bayview, Careel Bay and Forestville, now in 2022 we can add several other clubs to this list.
