Sponsorship Packages

We have been very fortunate to have AWARD CARPETS sponsor the development of our Junior teams. A big thank you to Karl Wallace for this sponsorship.

Also a big thank you to New World who has supported the Match League Tournaments run by Aaron for the Juniors on Saturdays.

Club & Court Hire

The courts and club rooms can be hired out for private functions at very competitive rates. We have been hired out in the past by companies to run team building events and birthday celebrations.

The courts can be hired out by non-members for casual tennis play when there is someone at the club. Members are more than welcome to bring along guests. Fees for court usage are $10 per person per hour without Court Lights and $15 per person per hour with Court lights. After 3 visits we encourage all guests to become members.

ASB Classic

Ticket bookings for ASB Classic is on the way with some big names like Venus Williams, John Isner, Caroline Wozniacki and Victoria Azarenka will be visiting our shores to hit off the Summer Season. Looking forward to some great action on the courts. Book your tickets now to be part of the excitement.


Wishing you all a great 2018-19 Season.
