Making Friends for Life
Providing opportunities to celebrate shared interests and friendships among Club Members.
Tattersall’s Club is where a shared love of sports and common interests are celebrated and new friendships are formed.
Tattersall’s Club brings our Members together, but it’s our shared love of sports and other common interests that bind us together and provide opportunities to form new friendships.
Predominantly, but not exclusively sports-orientated, our Interest Groups are for Tattersall’s Club Members of all ages, from our youngest through to our most senior Members.
