Why Love Tennis

It's all about ‘bringing the community in’ to your club. Reaching out and engaging with your community and connecting as a team of club volunteers.  “This club is a place for everybody”. Love Tennis is fast becoming one of New Zealand's favourite community events, inspiring people across the country, to get along to their local tennis club, pick up a racquet and give tennis a go.

“Love Tennis is a showcase to the community to show them what your club is all about”.

It’s a three-way collaboration Tennis NZ, Regions/Association and Clubs, working together and sharing the financial commitment.  Love Tennis merchandise/resource kits are now one standard size and suitable for up to around 100 visitors. Cost to clubs - kit $185+GST.  A second kit can be ordered for clubs expecting 100+ visitors. 

You can check out all the amazing stats from last year’s nationwide event below.

As always, the Love Tennis team are here to help, you can get in touch by emailing: lovetennis@tennis.kiwi

We asked clubs what worked well for them in 2023:

  • Adults coming who hadn't played tennis in years
  • Community coming together
  • Constant stream of people coming into the club to see what we offer
  • Every court was full and the place was buzzing
  • The amount of people turning up well exceeded our expectation

The value of Love Tennis cannot be understated. The event has driven us as a sport to innovate and keep challenging norms, we have a desire to be New Zealand’s favourite sport for participation and Love Tennis is a cornerstone of our strategy.

It is quite unlike any other event in the country and we can’t wait to get more people playing in 2024!
