Club Coach Position

Sunnyhills Tennis Club was established 50 years ago, on land donated by the Fisher Family. Situated next to the Tamaki Estuary in a quiet, family orientated community.

A small privately owned club held by its members with six newly refurbished Astroturf courts, the club has a strong presence in the Auckland Tennis Competitions. Winning Junior, Senior and Club of the Year in 2013. We aim to provide the best environment and opportunities that we can for our members, especially our juniors.

SHTC has had great success with our Senior, Mid-Week, Junior, Junior Caro Bowl (runners-up 2014/15) and our Women’s Caro Bowl Team (runners-up 2012, champions 2013 & 2014).

Supported by a competent main committee and junior conveners, the successful coach will have many opportunities to develop and enrich the existing programs, while being able to implement their own ideas.
