Welcome to the Stoke Tennis Club
We are a growing club, with around 200 members of all ages and abilities.
The Club is located at the corner of Songer Street and Main Road Stoke, next to Greenmeadows.
Thanks to the Rata Foundation for supporting Stoke Tennis
Courts and Facilities
Stoke has five astro turf courts that are accessible by swipe card to club members.
All courts are equipped with lights so play can continue into the evening. Club members are asked to use the lights on courts 4 and 5 while building is in progress.
Members of the public are advised that the closest public courts, available for use free of charge, can be located at Tahunanui Beach.
The new clubhouse will be part of the Greenmeadows Stoke Community Centre and is currently under construction. Thank you to everyone for your patience while the building process is taking place! We should be back in the new building in the next couple of months.
The Lodestone Classic Invitational Tournament was held in Upper Moutere recently. Stoke teams played some outstanding tennis with Kolie and Julie finishing as runners up in the competitive grade, after a close super tiebreaker finish. And in the 'social' section Kay and Hahn played some great matches to take out the win! It was a great day of tennis, thanks to Moutere for hosting a memorable tournament.
The NBTA end of season celebrations acknowledged Stoke Club Volunteer of the Year: Don Baskett
Thanks to Don for all of the time and energy he puts into keeping the club courts in excellent condition. Here is Don being presented with his award at a recent club day.
Congratulations also goes to the Stoke 4 Strokes - John Armstrong, Jono Trolove, Pete Cronin, Andy Smith & Hamish Grenfell.
A great season saw them finish Runner Up in the Men's B Grade competition, as well as coming a close 2nd in the Best Sportsmanship Award for their grade.
