Merger with Hagley Park Tennis Club: 

We are very pleased to advise that we received unanimous support from both Clubs to work towards an operational merger and are now known as Te Kura Hagley Park Tennis Club from the 2017-18  summer season and beyond.

All members will have the advantage of playing at both Clubs. More courts will be available during the week at Hagley Park and we'll be encouraging all members to play socially there. We envisage that the Te Kura courts will be most heavily used for coaching, however some interclub coaching will take place at Hagley Park too. We look forward to re-creating a great Club atmosphere on Friday afternoons and Saturday mornings at Hagley Park, with all Hot Shots coaching taking place on the front row of courts while interclub matches are running and of course we will bring back the Saturday BBQ!! 

Hugo will be the Head Coach of Te Kura Hagley Park Tennis Club  and will bring with him his team of coaches that the children all know very well. 

With some urgency we are intending to build a new row of artificial courts at Hagley Park, and to upgrade the astro-turf courts they have.  Now that we have the legal basis in place for the merged operation this will be a primary focus for the new committee.

Te Kura Tennis Club

The Te Kura Tennis club is largely dedicated to the development of junior tennis. We also aim to create a family friendly environment by providing opportunities within the club for all family members. We have comprehensive playing and coaching programs with a clear pathway from young beginners (Tennis Hot Shots) through to Junior and Senior Interclub. We welcome both recreational and competitive players. 

In the 2016-17 Summer the Te Kura Tennis Club had 28 teams in the Canterbury Tennis Interclub competition.  We also had 16 Hot Shots groups, receiving coaching on Fridays and Saturdays.

Te Kura is arguably the strongest Junior Club, with 8 of our 28 teams winning their grades and 4 more teams finishing runner up. In the April 2017 Canterbury Championships, 26 TK players took part, 5 of whom won Canterbury titles and there were plenty of other strong performances. 

We currently have 6 senior inter-club teams to accommodate competitive senior players and provide another stepping stone for our most outstanding juniors. We are all about juniors and seniors competing together, having fun and the team always comes first! We continue to build our senior program from year to year.

Other opportunities for senior players include competitive Midweek Ladies teams, social senior match-play on Tuesday nights and, of course, Coaching

Furthermore, we have a wide variety of events throughout the year including BBQs, social events and tournaments including our in-house club champs and extremely popular Parent-Child tournament as well as open tournaments, which attract players from around Christchurch. The coaching team is also pro-active in organising team trips for Juniors to regional and even international tournaments.
