Book a Court
Are you a club interested in opening up your facilities to the general public in a simple, modern and accessible way? Book a Court is a fantastic solution for tennis clubs and tennis courts to become more accessible to the local community. It will also help diversify your club’s income stream that is simple and manageable.
We know that 19-44 year olds are the demographic that really want to play tennis, but currently don’t. One of the reasons for them not playing is cost, as many think they have to be a member of the club in order to play. We want them to know that this isn’t the case! Book a Court is a smart system that saves players and administrators time, meaning more time on court for everyone!
We are offering clubs a Hardware Subsidy Scheme. Learn more.

Find Support Locally
As well as support from your local Region and Association staff, and support from Tennis NZ, we also recommend using the network of Regional Sports Trusts across the country. These bodies all have staff dedicated to both club and coaching capability, and offer a variety of resources like templates, guidance and even practical workshops. Feel free to browse the websites outside of your club locality if you can't find exactly what you need straight away.
A strong venue and coach relationship is integral to the success of your club or centre. Together you can drive participation, add value for your members and grow each other’s player base.
The key to success is to ace the five phases in managing your coaching services arrangement at your club and creating a win-win partnership with your coaching services team.

Community Sport Insights
During 2019, Tennis NZ partnered with Nielsen and Sport NZ to undertake a club member survey – the Voice of the Participant. Key results show that tennis club members are more satisfied and more likely to re-join than respondents from 9 other sport codes (rugby league, netball, badminton, hockey, futsal, rugby, cricket, touch rugby and golf)
To summarise, tennis club members are satisfied with their club experience, are likely to recommend their club to others, they perceive that they are getting good value for money, and are likely to rejoin their club. The most requested improvements were for better/cleaner facilities (eg club rooms, changing rooms, toilets), and improved courts.
