    Play for just 10 Dollars in Hagley Park

    If you love tennis you can play in Hagley Park for nearly nothing. The Hagley Park Tennis Club welcomes casual players and charges only NZ$ 10. There are even some locations in Christchurch where you can play for free. But this club has an incredible lot of courts and is centrally located – right at the western carpark of the Botanic Garden, off Riccarton Avenue. Or you just walk there leisurely from the city centre.

    23 of the 29 courts are lawn courts. The other six courts are hard courts (plexipave and synthetic lawn).

    You have to pay your green fee before you start playing.

    I would probably avoid the hours when they offer organised social tennis. This takes place on Wednesdays from 6pm to 8pm and on Saturdays from 1.30pm to 4pm, additionally daily from 6pm to 8pm in summer months.

    As they have a fulltime coach you can also take tennis lessons. You can directly get in touch with the coach via email:

    Equipment: The club requires to bring appropriate shoes, especially for the lawn courts. The other request is to wear tennis attire. So do not just run around in jeans and anorak LOL

    Address: Hagley Park

    Directions: Two access ways:
    1.) From the city centre side. Drive (or walk) to the Botanic Garden carpark from the corner of Rolleston Ave and Armagh Street.
    2.) From the Riccarton side of Hagley Park. Car park entrance to Gardens from Riccarton Ave.
