Gisborne Tennis Club


Welcome to the Gisborne Tennis Club (NZ) website. We are an incorporated organisation with many members meeting regularly for social and competition tennis. You should find all you need to know here but if you have any questions please use the Contact form to send us messages.

We have five synthetic grass courts and a Synpave hardcourt suitable for all ages and skills. Lights are available for evening matches. Casual players can hire a court and annual membership is available.

If you are interested in joining or just playing a casual game please check out the membership and fees pages.

Members or potential members are encouraged to come along to our Club Day on Sundays 1.30pm - 4.00pm.

Key for courts can be hired from YMCA and Andy Pittam is available for coaching 020 4025 4441



Club Champs dates have been set as follows:

Doubles - Sunday the 15th of March

Mixed Doubles - Sunday the 29th of March

Singles - Sunday the 5th of April

You must be a full member to play in any of the club champs events.


Gisborne are hosting the Wilson Garland Shield this year on the weekend of the 29th Feb - 1st March. Teams of 4 women and 4 men from Gisborne, Napier, Hastings and Central Hawkes Bay will compete for the shields. The courts will be unavailable during that weekend including for juniors.

We will be providing lunch for our guests so if anyone is available to assist with preparing a simple lunch please reply to this email.

There will be some good tennis on display so feel free to come down and support Team Gissy!!

This visiting teams will also be looking for accommodation, so if any members have holiday houses in town or the beach that are available to rent that weekend please let us know by return email.


Junior coaching resumes this Saturday with an earlier start time of 8.30am. Coach Noel is concious of the effect the hotter weather has on the kids so has recommended starting half an hour earlier.

Club Day resumed on the 19th of January. A reminder that we have kept to Sunday afternoons from 1-1.30pm instead of switching to the morning slot for summer.

If anyone is available to help out with the board on club day we would appreciate your help.
