We are proud and excited to announce that the 2022 NOBA Junior Championships are scheduled for March 25-27, 2022. The tournament will be held at KTP Racquet Club in North Bay. Please visit the Tournaments & Events page to learn more about the tournament and review our covid-19 tournament protocols.

New Direction for NOBA
August 27, 2021
We all know that the last year has had it's challenges. However, we are happy to finally see some light at the end of the tunnel, and to help guide the way, NOBA has a brand new board of directors. At the NOBA AGM, held virtually on August 26, 2021, the membership voted and elected our new board of directors for the next two year term. Congratulations to all of those elected!
2021-23 NOBA Board of Directors
President - Kurt Tempelmans Plat
Vice-President - Tanya Cloutier
Treasurer - Troy Brushett
Member at Large - Mickey Obradovich
Member at Large - Nicholas Babich
In addition to a new board of directors, the current board (who's term ends on September 1st) approved the 2021-24 NOBA Strategic Plan that was developed by the Strategic Planning Committee. This plan takes into consideration the strengths and weaknesses of the district and tries to fill in any gaps that are present. The plan identifies a number of important aspects, but ultimately breaks down the district into four main pillars: Organizational Structure, Communications, Growth, and Marketing & Awareness. Within each pillar is a number of goals and priorities for the district to work on, develop, and maintain over the next few years. The executive summary for the strategic plan can be viewed by clicking HERE.
