Social Tennis at Taieri

Looking to play tennis socially or casually? We've got the baseline covered! We welcome both members and non-members to play tennis at our tennis club, and players of all ages and abilities are well catered for. Here are your options:


Both members and non-members can book a court to play at your leisure. Simply head to our Book A Court page to choose a day/time/court that suits you. Bookings for members are free. Bookings for non-members are pay-as-you-go. As a non-member you pay online in advance, receive a unique code to unlock the smart padlock, then play on the court of your choosing. Easy! 



Our club has weekly social tennis sessions, and again, both members and non-members of all levels are welcome and encouraged to participate! Playing social tennis is a great way to meet new people, have a great time, and build on your tennis skills. It's also especially helpful if you don't have a regular tennis buddy to play casually with.

Each session is led by a club social coordinator, and game play is often set up as follows: a warm-up hit, then short doubles matches, and rotating players after each round to mix things up. No need to book in advance, just show up on the day, and pay in cash to the coordinator. The club provides tennis balls. Most players bring their own racquets, however if you don't have one - all good - we have few spare racquets which you're welcome to use.
