We’ve had some great months of tennis for our senior members in 2022 so far. Lots of great action on the courts and some great tennis being played.
We have a couple of activities planned for the coming months, please keep a lookout… including Wine Tasting evening being planned now as the cooler months set in!

What a great way to end our season. Many thanks to all our players, captains, parent’s and vehicle car poolers for their time. It was great to see our courts and club houses pumping with activity on interclub days and of course there were also opportunities for social distanced socialising. My thanks to our Interclub Selectors, Juliet Hislop, Aaron Gillies and Aaron Hicks for their time and of course our Club Captain John Mills.
I look forward to our 2022-2023 Summer Season.

WINTER TENNIS LEAGUE
For those looking to keep up their competitive tennis over winter, look no further, than the Winter Tennis League. This is suitable for senior players and advanced juniors who play senior interclub. This involves players from Howick, Koru and Sunnyhills Tennis Clubs.
How it works?
Players are put into different draws based on ability. The draw is created by Howick and Sunnyhills Tennis coaches and plyers will receive the draw for the month. Players contact each other to organise their best of 3 singles match and each player keeps a record of their own score.
If you would like to sign up for the June round, please forward your names to the club.
