Senior Interclub

While we may not host the top level interclub grades we are extremely proud of the teams we enter each season. Orakei is considered fair, competitive and enthusiastic - we host a bar upstairs and boast some of the best foodies around the Bays - and beware we are so welcoming many previous competitors have switched sides and come to join our ranks!

Senior interclub consists of home & away matches every second Saturday from midday (approx Sept - early Dec & Feb - April)

Mens and Womens Open - 4 individual players with one singles and one doubles each

Presidents Open - 4 women and 4 men with one doubles and one mixed doubles each (aged 30 years plus)

We traditionally enter multiple Mens and Womens Open Singles teams, along with one Presidents team, yet we are always looking for new talent to join us!

Junior tennis

We run an active junior tennis program which involves after school coaching, club play on Friday’s, inter-club competition in the weekends, and school holiday programs.  The  Friday night junior club night is open to non-members as well ($10) and is a great way for the kids to bring a friend.  Beginners 5-6pm; more experienced juniors 6-7pm every Friday during term time.  Coaching information can be found here:  Kiwi Tennis Coaching 

For general information about juniors please email the junior club controller Joanne (joannecrang@gmail.com).

We enter several junior interclub teams each year in term 1 and 4.

Mid-week tennis

Midweek members are entitled to use the courts Monday to Friday 9am - 5pm. All midweek members are invited to the Clubs social and fun tournament events which may take place during weekends or weekday evenings.

Orakei Midweek Tennis has never been so popular as it is right now! It is exciting, friendly and enjoyable tennis.

We provide novice sessions, back to tennis sessions, play days, fun tournaments, Club Champs during Term 1 and indoor/outdoor interclub teams. We have at least one fun event each term.

All visitors can have 2 free visits at our Thursday morning social play. If you are still not sure about tennis after 2 visits, we also have a concession card system which you can purchase 10 visits before officially joining the Club.

Organised tennis at Orakei is scheduled on Thursday from 915am to noon.  We have a strong presence in midweek interclub with teams playing summer and winter across several different grades and days.
