COVID 19 – UPDATE

From Monday 31st August, to Wednesday 23rd September, the club courts will be open subject to the restriction of gatherings to a maximum of 10 people. Unfortunately, that means we are unable to open for senior social tennis until at least the 23rd September.

Welcome to the Whangaparaoa Tennis Club

Situated in the heart of the Whangaparaoa Peninsula at Edith Hopper Park, the Whangaparaoa Tennis Club offers 6 artificial grass floodlit tennis courts, a fully equipped clubhouse with licenced bar and plenty of parking.

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. Club courts are available for limited public use at a cost of $5/hour per person, at times that the courts are not required for organised club play or by members of the club during casual play.
