Our club coach runs programmes for all beginner players from the age of 4 through to 99.

Chelsea Cup – 2020
Whangaparaoa Tennis Club have again entered a men’s team for this season’s Chelsea Cup.
Chelsea Cup is Tennis Northern Region’s elite premier tennis interclub Competition (limited to 8 teams) and there will be a high standard of tennis. Matches start at 6.30pm on seven consecutive Fridays, with the first match on 7 February 2020.
We will be hosting 3 games at Home this year, which will be held on:
Friday 14th February
Friday 28th February
Friday 13th March
The Friday evening games are a great way to end the week. The bar will be open for our home games and in the past we have had a great turnout of club members with a beverage in hand cheering for our team.
Once again we are very privileged to have KGA Warkworth renew their Chelsea Cup sponsorship this season and the team will again be kitted out in the KGA / Whangaparaoa Tennis Club shirts. If you need any accounting or business advice please chat to Jacqui Ironside or visit the KGA Warkworth website at www.kgaww.co.nz.
