Reciprocal Club: Halifax

Reciprocal Club on the Canadian waterfront.

Head east for epic access to coast and comfort

Founded in 1908, the waterside Waegwoltic Club features 12 tennis courts, four pools, and a fleet of 42 sailboats. Host of the Nova Scotia Tennis Open, The Waegwoltic is a family-centric club located on a small point of the Northwest Arm, a two-mile inlet off the Atlantic Ocean. Halifax Stanfield Airport lies about 30 minutes by car to the north. WAC members will enjoy the old clubhouse, picturesque dining room, sailing lessons, tennis, and swimming. The Waegwoltic offers a great summertime destination for lovers of the outdoors, yet downtown Halifax is a 10-minute drive away.

During your visit, be sure to ride a Halifax Transit ferry across the harbor, dine in the beautiful brick restaurants of Argyle Street, and browse the vendors at Halifax Seaport Farmers’ Market. A short drive out of the city core will take you to Peggys Cove, where a picturesque fishing village and historic lighthouse will reward you with gorgeous photos and wide-open views of the North Atlantic Ocean.

Great times to visit in 2017 include the 150th Canada Day on July 1. The international Tall Ships fleet will drop anchor in Halifax from July 29–August 1, and the Halifax Seaport Beerfest will quench your thirst August 11–12.

The Waegwoltic Club is one of our newest reciprocal clubs and our first in Nova Scotia.
