Cranford Clay Courts Tennis Club Accepting New Members for the 2019 Season @ Cranford Clay Courts
Sep 18 @ 8:00 am – 10:00 pm
Cranford Clay Courts Tennis Club Accepting New Members for the 2019 Season @ Cranford Clay Courts | Cranford | New Jersey | United States

The Cranford Clay Courts Club, located on Springfield Avenue in Cranford, is currently accepting new members for the 2019 Season.

The Club offers a long outdoor tennis season, with the courts usually open from April into December in recent years, depending upon weather conditions.

In addition, the club enjoys the distinction of being the only outdoor tennis club in the area with a lighting system for night play on the Club’s well-maintained three har-tru (soft) courts.

The culture and communal aspect of the club offers members the somewhat unique opportunity to “find a game” without needing to bring a partner, particularly on weekday and weekend mornings. There are several social events throughout the season, Monday night open mixed doubles and clinics on Sunday afternoons at 4pm.

Membership in the Cranford Clay Courts Club is open to both resident and
non-residents. For more information in joining or participating in Team Tennis,

LOL Comedy Event @ Kenilworth VFW
Oct 11 @ 6:30 pm
LOL Comedy Event @ Kenilworth VFW | Kenilworth | New Jersey | United States
Please support one of our own by purchasing tickets to a Comedy show at the Kenilworth VFW on Friday, October 11th to raise funds for Art Bilenker, who in addition to being a long time Cranford dentist was also a true highlight of the Jaycee’s Firecracker 4 miler each year where as a Jaycee, he served as the host and emcee at the end of the race, celebrating the winners, handing out prizes, and entertaining all the runners and their supporters with trivia games and all-around goofiness.

On July 4th, 2017, on his way to the race, Art suffered a catastrophic injury when he got out to inspect the generator in his pickup truck and the truck rolled over him, paralyzing him from the neck down. As you can imagine, he and his family have had to endure a great deal since then, and members of the Jaycees, along with two veterans organizations, Project Help and Vet Rest are doing what we can to offset some of the financial burden placed upon the Bilenker family.

The flier provides information on how to purchase tickets online, but I am also available if you’d like to purchase them locally and can be reached at 908-787-2085 or [email protected] If you order two, I’ll even drop them off at your house. For those of you know and love Cranford like I do, this is what our community is all about. Thank you for your support!
