The club runs organised social club play year-round and organises inter-club teams at all levels for Seniors, Juniors (8-19yrs) and Mid-Week players in the Tennis Northern competition, during the summer tennis season (September – April). Our club coach runs programmes for all beginner players from the age of 4 through to 99.

Love Tennis – September 7th & 8th, 2019
Whangaparaoa Tennis Club is joining the nationwide initiative of ‘Love Tennis’ to encourage more people in the region to have fun playing tennis.
The event takes place between 1-4pm on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th September, 2019.
We hope to attract both Juniors and Adults to try us out, and give them a taste of the fun and enjoyment that can be had by playing tennis at our club.
There are prizes to be won, and Hells Pizza are sponsoring the event with 100 vouchers to be given out to attendees each day.
As well as using 4 courts shared between adults and Juniors to hit a ball, we will have a ball machine and speed radar to measure your serve speed, in use on the other 2 courts.
