Happy Tennis Players

Monday and Wednesday Ladies Doubles

Monday and Wednesday day morning doubles tennis organised by some of our lovely members. 


We gather at the tennis courts and play for 1.5 to 2 hours in the morning and have coffee after.  The games are very popular and we often have 4-6 courts occupied. 

Ladies (and gentlemen who are invited) of all skill levels are welcome. However, basic knowledge of tennis skills, scoring and rules are necessary.

Starting time changes each season (between 8.30am and 9.30am), so please contact Barbara Thomas at 021 036 0066 or barbth@live.com before coming down to the courts.


If you are new and not sure, you are welcome to come and play one or two times with the ladies, without any payment or being a member, but after that you will need to contribute ball money and be a member of the club.


Covid-19 Opt In Traffic Light Rules

Under the new traffic light system the committee had to decide whether to opt into the My Vaccine Pass this Friday, 3 December, 2021. This is the path that New Zealand is is taking to try and control this pandemic using vaccination passes and the traffic light system to allow businesses and hospitals to keep operating. Therefore the tennis club committee has adopted a policy that My Vaccine Pass will be used at specified times and days of the week. We require all adult members to use the My Vaccine Pass system during these hours (unless they have a medical exemption which the committee is able to verify).   These my vaccine pass times are 8-11am and 6-9pm Mondays, 8-11am Tuesdays, 8-11 am Wednesdays, 8-11 am Fridays and Thursdays from 3 pm.  Juniors are exempt from my vaccine pass requirements.


Outside of these hours members can play there is no requirement for my vaccine pass and anyone with a casual paid up key can play if there is a court free, there is no booking system, it is first in, first served.

Since it is privately organised, it has its own eclectic rules, this is so we get to mix around and play with different people in the time allowed.  You can download the rules below:
