International tennis in your back yard! The Wither Hills West End Cup is less than three weeks away! Top NZ and Overseas players will descend on the West End Lawn Tennis Club in Westmere, Auckland to battle it out for supremacy from 1 – 4 December.
2016 sees the return of our top NZ Men’s players Finn Tearney, Rubin Statham (NZ’s most decorated Davis Cup player), and Marcus Daniell along with Rhett Purcell, Olly Sadler, Daniel Brown, and exciting junior player Macsem Sisam along with many more. Our international line-up includes John-Patrick Smith (Aus) who recently beat world No.20 Ivo Karlovic, 2010 Commonwealth Games silver medallist Greg Jones (Aus), WTA world No.181 Julia Glushko (Isr), Tammi Patterson (Aus), Masa Jovanovic (Aus), and Alexandra Walters (Aus).
This is a FREE event for all to enjoy. What’s more there is a KidsZone for the little tennis fans with bouncy castle and face painter, and food and drinks available for purchase all weekend. There’s something for everyone!
After the close of play on Saturday evening (3rd Dec) you can show your racquet skills in the Super 10 tournament against the pros for a chance to win cash prizes (entry fee applies). From 6pm our popular ‘Beats and Bubbles’ kicks off with our resident DJ playing smooth tunes – mingle with the players as the sun sets while enjoying a soft drink or a glass of Daniel Le Brun Methode Traditionnelle and food from Jess’ Underground Kitchen on our fantastic new clubrooms deck.
Finals Day on Sunday 4th December promises to be the best ever! Catered table ticket holders can be close to the tennis action on our court side tables enjoying a beautiful three course meal from Catroux Cafe (Westmere) and a fine assortment of Wither Hills wines and international beers. Is there a better way to spend a Sunday afternoon with friends or business colleagues?
And in an exciting new development this year Finals Day will be filmed LIVE on Sky Sport from 10am to close of play on Centre Court. Our partnership with Tennis Auckland and the ASB Classic is growing each year and we are proud to be recognised as one of the premier tennis tournaments in New Zealand.
