About us

Highfield Tennis Club is an Incorporated Society (charity) that was established on 20 January 1931 and is a warm and welcoming club with a great atmosphere. We take pride in our facility and love tennis both at a competitive and social level.

Highfield Tennis Club was incorporated in 1931 and was originally developed on the grounds of St Paul’s Church in Seddon Street. Two clubs were sited there, side by side - the other club was St Paul’s Tennis Club. In 1978 / 1979 the Highfield Tennis Club moved to our current site on 35 Spring Road, Gleniti, but loyal members could not bear to change the name of the club so it remained as the Highfield Tennis Club.

Highfield has a strong membership makeup and has great support from players, parents, coaches, volunteers, sponsors, and committees. It is with this that Highfield looks to the future to continue to grow tennis within the community and support Tennis South Canterbury.
