Our courts are back in action from today, having been resurfaced and looking very smart in blue.
Given our courts are now in such good condition, this is a timely reminder that the courts are for tennis. Please have a word if you see any activity regarding anything that could damage the courts like rollerblades, skateboards, scooters. Let's all do our bit to take care of them for many years of great play.
Rod Armstrong from Prestige Courts has done a wonderful job. Big thanks to Jason Kane (Club Captain) for working with Rod over the duration of this project, and reinstating the nets today. Thank you Chris Milne (Property and Fundraising Convenor) for persevering with and managing the grants process.
This significant project was made possible through grants from NZCT and the TAB, and of course from the contribution you made through player levies. Thank you for your contribution, and for your patience with the courts being out of action.
We are holding our annual Open Day, in conjunction with Tennis NZ's Love Tennis event, on the weekend of 10th and 11th of October. See all details here.

The key change on court is the introduction of the 'Racket bump'. It's a wonderful part of sport that we acknowledge our opponent/s on court, please do this by bumping rackets rather than shaking hands. We did this at interclub on Saturday and Junior champs on Sunday, it takes a moment to remember but everyone soon gets used to it.
Bring a Friend and give tennis a go at the Open day! Bring your friends, family, neighbours, co-workers and have a fun afternoon of tennis. This is for everyone, so juniors and seniors grab your friends and come on down. We will have a sausage sizzle for gold coin donation. See ya there!
Sunday 18th February 2018, 1-3pm wet or fine.
