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, 4 Pop Tennis courts (the only ones in New Zealand!!), 1 Netball practice area 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 and Pop Tennis, 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.
