The club regularly enters a number of teams into regional interclub tennis competitions run by Tennis Central, where you get to test your tennis prowess against different clubs in the Wellington region. Over the past few years, we have had teams in the Mixed A, Mixed B, Mixed C, Mixed D and Mixed E interclub competitions, and in 2022 we reinstated a Mens team into the interclub competition.
Competition is usually held on a Saturday morning (Mens grade) or afternoon (Mixed grades). Interclub starts mid October and runs until early December. After Christmas interclub starts again at the end of January and continues until early March.
There is also a midweek interclub team that is available for members who are available during weekdays, and an interclub competition that runs over winter - Frampton Winter interclub.
Tennis New Zealand runs a grading system known as MatchHub (https://tennis.org.nz/). Every player receives a singles ranking (S*) and a doubles ranking (D*) and receives points for matches won/lost. Players must play in ranking order for interclub. Note you must check the ranking before each match, as the rankings are updated daily.
Putting your name forward for an interclub team is a commitment, and there is an expectation that you will be available for your rostered matches. The club may be subject to fines or deduction of competition points if teams don't turn up and have to default matches.
The Mildenhall Trophy is awarded to the most outstanding interclub player at the end of season prizegiving. This is based on the number of matches won throughout the interclub season.
There will also be an additional charge for interclub players to cover the cost of registration of the team. Currently the charge is $4 per interclub match player per person.
