The following quotation is reprinted from the only club book produced by the Club in 1941, courtesy of our archivist Geoff Felder.

"The Porterfield Family having generously permitted the use of their land, the Northport Tennis Club was organized in the spring of 1940. Due to donations of time and labor by many of the members and the assistance of their friends, the tennis courts were placed in condition for play...The basis of a successful club has been established."
