Entries are now open for the 2021 Pre-Xmas Junior Interclub Competition. Tennis Auckland is proceeding on the basis that the Competition can go ahead at the end of October, but will be in touch if anything changes before the proposed start date.


Tennis Auckland advises the following:

  • Players aged 18 and under as at 30 April 2022 are eligible to play in the Pre-Xmas Junior Interclub Competition
  • Team entries close online on Sunday 3 October. Clubs have an extra week than normal to enter teams as we appreciate the difficulty that may arise putting teams together with the current lockdown. This means draws will be published later too – we aim to publish these by Friday 22 October. 
  • Interclub starts on Saturday 30 October – Open Grades at 8.30am and Beginner Grades at 12.30pm.  Sunday Premier, Open and Beginner Grades start Sunday 31 October at 9am.  
  • Tennis Auckland has worked hard to keep interclub fees as affordable as possible for all of our Clubs and has not raised prices for a very long time.  This season we are applying a 10% increase to all team entry fees across our Interclub Competitions.  The new price for Junior Interclub is $33 per team as outlined on the Team Entry Form. This increase recognises the significant, dedicated resource that is required to deliver our Interclub Competitions over the course of the year.  While price increases are never welcome, we hope and trust that you agree the Competitions still represent tremendous value.
