Tennis Club Champs 2019 entries NOW OPEN!

This is it: the main event of the tennis calendar kicks off next month with a dedicated finals weekend across Saturday 6 April 6 and Sunday 7 April. 
Silverware up for grabs will be graded men's, women's singles, doubles, and mixed events plus junior boys' and girls' singles and doubles titles.
We will be running Open (for higher-graded players) and B (lower grades and social-level) comps for senior players so there are events for all abilities.
Getting into the draw is simple, just click here to fill in the entry form now!

Senior graded Fast Fours comp

Take the opportunity to get sharp for the club champs by signing up for our annual business house format teams round robin event. This runs Wednesday evenings over several weeks, and this year, depending on interest, we're looking to run a split graded comp, with a B group playing weekends. Contact club pro David Mustard on 021 476 606 for more info. You must be available to play all scheduled dates and entry fees will apply.

Online Club Referee Exam

This is a great starting point for both new and experienced players to ensure you can be confident of the rules.  

All players competing in competitive play such as interclub and tournaments are expected to have completed and passed the exam.

The exam consists of 50 multi-choice questions and can be fully completed online through the Squash NZ website.  The Club Referee qualification is valid for two years from the time of completion.  Both players and non-players are able to complete the exam.
