Nicholson Park Update

  • Post category:News

There are some exciting changes happening to Nicholson Park Tennis Courts, and we think you’re going to like them!

From mid to late October, the tennis courts will be bookable by the hour – meaning you can guarantee your court time with our easy online booking system.

With extremely affordable tiered pricing (including some daily/evening/weekend slots available to book free of charge), and no membership or registration fees, we are excited to bring Nicholson Park into our network of publicly accessible, well-maintained Auckland tennis venues.

Plan your play at Nicholson Park and book your slot up to seven days in advance (min. booking 30 mins, max. booking 120 mins). Courts are bookable between 7am –10pm year-round, and refunds will be available for bookings cancelled more than 24 hours in advance. We can’t wait to welcome you to this newly improved community hub for tennis!

If you’re playing into the wee hours, state-of-the-art sensored LED floodlighting will be installed during December to light up the court so you can keep playing after the sun goes down and in time for those wintery tennis evenings in ‘24. (Please note, court bookings that are free of charge won’t have access to floodlighting). 

David Frank, GM Tennis & Facilities for Tennis Auckland says, “It’s been a long journey to get to this point – not least due to the pandemic, but we’re so excited to announce these changes which will see Nicholson Park undergo a series of physical improvements, as well as offering users a state-of-the art booking system.  Later in the year, new floodlights and poles will integrate with the on-line booking system, so players can book and have the lights turn on in time for their game.”

“There have been many people involved to get here, amongst these particular thanks go to Jo Heaven and Tarun Nethula (Auckland Council), Albert-Eden Local Board, Mount Eden Tennis Club, Eden-Epsom Tennis & Squash Club, Ngatira Tennis Club, Simon Tattersfield (Aktive – Auckland Sport & Recreation), Tennis New Zealand and our funders New Zealand Community Trust and The Trusts Community Foundation”.

Please stay tuned to our Facebook page for further details on when these changes will be officially kicking in. Feel free to contact with any questions or enquiries in the meantime.
