Its Not Wimbledon ---Its Te Aroha


There are few Grass Courts left in New Zealand. The hard work in preparing the Courts is done by Owen Passau who is also President of The NZ Vets, Owen is pictured on the clubs ancient  Tractor.  The other photo shows the 8 Grass Courts during a tournament held this week. Mike Erceg the Clubs President and Club Coach Clem Apted have doubled the number of Juniors this season and are keen to make Te Aroha the centre of Tennis in the Piako Area. The club welcomes visitors so if you fancy a game on the Grass and excellent accommodation at Te Aroha Landing, just give Clem a call at 078844548.
