Senior Membership and Club Sessions
There are regular club days and club nights all year round. Club days are held on Saturday afternoons from 1.30pm onwards, (sometimes transferred to Sunday afternoons in the summer to permit home Saturday afternoon interclub matches) while club nights run on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 7.30pm-10pm.
Generally on club days and nights we play doubles and swap around after games about 20 minutes of play. The tennis is of a good level but also very social. The senior players take turns being on “duty” at these times. These club days/nights are open to all senior members as well as juniors who are playing senior interclub.
Midweek members are also welcome to come along and see if they would like to play in these sessions but to do so regularly does require you to be a senior member.
In addition, there are several other events and social activities that take place during the year, including the Senior Club Championships, and the Over 40s Tournament, which is a lot of fun. On a few occasions, the club hires indoor courts at the Wellington Renouf Tennis Centre on a Sunday afternoon for a change in venue and a social occasion for both Senior and Midweek members.
Over the summer, the club enters several teams, men’s, women’s and mixed, in the local interclub competitions run by the Tennis Central Region. These include Premier competitions for better competitive players that run on Saturday afternoons and Tecnifibre competitions catering for all other players wishing to compete against other clubs that run on Saturday mornings and some evenings.
Many congratulations to our Women’s A Premier 3 team that finished runners up in the Post-Christmas competition and might be promoted to Premier 2 for the 2020 Pre-Christmas competition.
In another notable success, our Women’s B team finished runners-up in the Tecnifibre Grade 1 Post-Christmas and should be eligible to play in the Premier 4 in the 2020 Pre-Christmas competition.

Full information about the above competitions, including rules and draws, can be found on the Tennis Central website here.
The 2020 Pre-Christmas competitions are scheduled to commence on 17 and 18 October.
An interclub competition is also played over the winter months in a mixed grade that plays every second Sunday afternoon.
There is also a separate winter interclub competition run by Hutt Valley Tennis Association. For further information on the HVTA competition click here. This is available to juniors and seniors and graded.
Senior Club Championships
The club holds Senior Club Championships annually but the 2020 Championships were cancelled this year because of the Covid-19 lockdown restrictions. The 2021 Championships should resume next year and be held around April.
You can view the winners of previous years’ Championship events under the Honours Board below.
The Club Championships have been held for a number of years and we have a record of the winners of all five events – Men’s Singles, Women’s Singles, Men’s Doubles, Women’s Doubles and Mixed Doubles.
Over 40s Club Tournament
The 2020 Over 40s Tournament is normally held on Anzac Day of each year but was postponed this year to Saturday 15 August.
Details of this and previous years’ events have yet to be loaded for viewing.
