Welcome to New Tampa Seniors (NTS), founded in April 2011. We’re a free social Meet-up group for married or single seniors aged 60 and up who live within a 10 mile radius of New Tampa.
Meet-up and NTS were created for those who are looking for new friends and bringing together those with common interests. It is especially good for those who desire to rebuild their social lives after retirement, or when they move to a new area, lose a spouse or best friend, and other life-changing events. New Tampa Seniors is a free, safe way to join a very flexible and caring group of people, who have no set agenda, other than to make friends, enrich their lives and enjoy a wide range of social outings with others. There is no longer any reason to stay home or go out alone. We provide a way to experience live entertainment, dining out, museums, gardens, tours, one-tank trips and other points of interest with NTS friends. We restrict our membership to those that are age and geographic specific so as to encourage attendance with the frequency necessary to foster friendships.
For our geographic perimeter we’re using the pivot point at the intersection of I-75 and Bruce B Downs Blvd as the “center” of New Tampa and have extended our range out a radius of 10 miles from that point. This “boundary” is loosely defined as being bordered by Hwy 54 on the North, Suncoast Parkway on the West, I-4 & Hillsborough Avenue on the South and US 301 on the East. This basically covers most of New Tampa, Wesley Chapel, Carrollwood, Northdale, Cheval, Lutz, Land O Lakes, Temple Terrace, Zephyrhills, and Thonotosassa. Again, our purpose of geographic boundaries is to promote frequency of attendance as history has proven that those that have to travel great distances tend to become inactive.
• NTS is a senior’s social group - NOT a dating club. We welcome people who, for any reason, sincerely want to make new friends and enrich their lives. There are many “singles” and “mate-seeking” groups and websites out there for you to join if that is your primary intent.
• We are a private non-profit free-to-all group administered by uncompensated volunteers but we reserve the right to deny or terminate membership to anyone who cannot meet our membership criteria.
• Because our communications are all done on our web site or by email, members must be computer literate enough to stay fully informed about RSVP or payment deadlines for purchase of admissions to events.
• NTS does not provide access in any form for any vendor, agency or member to attempt to sell services or products to us or solicit for any charity or cause. NTS is not a political or religious organization. We will not provide a forum for any agency, individual or member to attempt to influence us as to their religious or political viewpoints.
What we ask is that all members treat each other and personnel at our venues with respect, tip appropriately, and respect the efforts of those that plan our Meetup activities by showing up when you say you’re going to. Those who are abusive, inactive, frequently cancel at the last minute, are “no-show” more than two times, or fail to pay for tickets ordered are subject to removal from the group.
SO…….If you qualify according to our membership criteria and would like to join our happy family and actively participate, then click on the “Join” button and start the process. We’ll be back in touch with you in a few days.
