Love Tennis 2023

why everyone needs to make this a priority event!

Love Tennis 2022 was one of NZ's most successful events yet, with more than 155+ clubs, 19,000 participants and just over 3,000 new member sign ups taking place.

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 go bigger and better in 2023!
