About the Club

Whitby Tennis Club was founded by the local community in 1975, and is situated in the Porirua suburb of Whitby.


There are four courts, two with a rebound synpave surface, and two surfaced with asphalt. The two rebound synpave courts have floodlights that allow members to play up to 10:00pm at night. We have well appointed clubrooms and ample off road car parking.


Whitby Tennis Club offers membership options for all ages and for all playing abilities, whether you’re a casual member wanting access to club facilities as and when you feel like a game, or a semi-competitive member with an organised mid-week evening league.


Weekend Interclub members are also involved in teams entered into a range of grades including Regional, Men’s, Women’s, Mixed and Junior teams in either the Wellington or Kapi Mana competitions. All grades commence in early October and run through until April the next year.


Members of the public may use the courts too. Please note that Whitby Tennis Club uses the courts during the tennis season (September to April) during the times below;

  • Monday 3:30pm to 7:30pm
  • Tuesday 4:00pm to 5:00pm and 7:00pm to 9:30pm
