We are located at 50 Dunkirk Rd., Panmure, on Mt. Wellington War Memorial Reserve, next to Marist Rugby. A beautiful location with great views of Tamaki River.

All playing surfaces have recently been resurfaced with artificial turf. We have 5 Tennis courts, 2 full size Futsal pitches, 2 Pop Tennis courts (the only ones in New Zealand!!), 1 Netball court and a multi-use leisure court. All sport areas have new floodlights. There is also a well-equipped clubhouse with Table Tennis and other indoor activities.

The club has made a comprehensive change, from being just a Tennis club, we are now a multi-sport facility, focusing on family and community. The decision to include a variety of other sports received considerable support from Auckland Council and the Maungakiekie Local Board. A significant AC facility Partnership Grant, plus grants from other funding agencies, paid for all the upgrade work costing in excess of $350,000.

We have various membership categories (please see the "Registration" section) and hire options (please see the "Venue Hire" section).

The club offers coaching programmes and opportunities for competition in Futsal, Tennis, Pop Tennis and Netball, and is always looking to introduce new activities.

We are an Incorporated Body, the club year is from 1st of October to 30th of September. Elections are held at the AGM in September.

The below video about Riverside Sports (then Mount Wellington Tennis Club) was made by Neil Coventry, Sports Partnerships Project Manager at Auckland Council.
The video looks at the outcomes and reasoning for the decisions made during the facilities redevelopment , lessons learned along the way, and advice to other clubs interested in following a similar path.

PoP TENNIS - FIRST IN NEW ZEALAND

The sport for everyone!!. A quicker version of Tennis that is easier to learn and fun to play. The court is smaller, net lower and the Pop Tennis racket is far easier to use than a Tennis racket. Rules and scoring are similar to regular Tennis. Serving is underhand.

Pop Tennis is a very popular sport in the United States, and is spreading world-wide very fast. See the website http://poptennis.com/

We have the only two Pop Tennis courts so far in New Zealand. Come for a free trial!!. We provide all the required equipment. No prior lessons needed. Immediate success.

TENNIS - A SPORT FOR ALL THE FAMILY

Tennis Image

Our Junior Coaching Classes follow the Hot Shot Tennis method, which is the national starter programme for kids. It provides a progressive pathway to developing
basic skills for tennis and other sports. We use smaller courts, shorter and lighter rackets and special slow balls. The emphasis is on fun and movement. Parents are actively encouraged to help in the classes. This provides help with ball feeding and serves to give parents an understanding of basic coaching skills so that they can help their children in further practice. We offer a free ‘try out’ session for newcomers.

The club also offers Tennis lessons for advanced junior players and adults (all levels).

Private lessons are available on request.

REGISTRATION FOR SATURDAY HOT SHOTS TENNIS LESSONS IN TERM 4 2018 IS OPEN

The programme will start on Saturday October 20th, and will include 8 Tennis sessions of 1 hour on Saturday mornings. The lessons are conducted by coach Neville Pegg. The players are divided into groups according to the age and skills, following the Hot Shot Tennis structure and introducing the use of Pop Tennis Paddles. The fee is $60, which goes on top of the membership fee.

FUTSAL - THE POWER OF FIVE!

Futsal Image

Futsal is a variant of Association Football (Soccer). It is played 5 a side on a smaller pitch, on a court surface delimited by lines and using a smaller ball with less bounce than a regular ball. The surface, ball and rules build an environment of improvisation, creativity, technique and fun for the kids.

The Futsal staff at MWTC includes experienced national and international coaches. Our Futsal lessons include drills to work on ball control, ball conduction, passing, shooting and coordination, and a Futsal game. We follow the “4 corner coaching method” promoted by Auckland Football Federation, which emphasises the following aspects.

Technical / Tactical
TECHNICAL / TACTICAL
Physical
PHYSICAL
Mental
MENTAL
SOCIAL / EMOTIONAL

As our Futsal Training Centre is not a league, we are looking for individuals, not for teams. Girls and boys born 2004-2015 are welcome to register.

Some of the best current and former soccer players in the world like Iniesta, Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar, Henry, Pele, Xavi and Ronaldinho started their way in Futsal.

NETBALL - A SPORT WITH TEAM SPIRIT

Netball is a fast, exciting, true team sport which involves running, jumping, throwing and catching. At Riverside Sports we have a non-official size Netball court used by our club members and users to practice. The height of the hoops complies with the regulation of the adult games.

Inclusive
Netball is an inclusive sport, can be played by females and males of all ages, and a wide range of positions allows for different skill levels.
Cost Efficient
Cost efficient sport and minimal equipment needed.
Non Agressive
Maintains a competitive yet non aggressive environment.
A true team sport as the ball must be passed from one player to another in order to move the ball down the court.
Self-esteem
and confidence is built through team work required, and players owning their
own ‘position’ on court.
