Where else can I play?
During the resurfacing, the Paraparaumu Beach tennis club will be unable to use the Te Ātiawa park courts. We’re making the most of the other courts available in the district to enable our regular tennis court users to continue playing. These courts are:
- Sams Way, Raumati South (map)
- Tennis Court Road, Raumati South (map)
- Pehi Kupa Street, Waikanae (map)
A PDF version of alernative courts can be found here.
These courts are public courts and available to use.
Te Ātiawa Park courts rebuild and resurfacing
One of our key initiatives as part of the FutureKāpiti Long term plan 2015-2035 was rebuilding the Te Ātiawa Park courts. This is a very popular venue - used by thousands of netball and tennis players every year - and we think it now meets the needs of our community.
Community feedback on the courts focused on surface cracking that had occurred over time. As well as providing a new, smooth surface to improve player safety, the rebuild addressed problems with drainage.
The work done included digging out the area, removing existing asphalt, compacting underlying layers, adding a sealant layer, laying new asphalt and in November an acrylic sports surface was applied to the newly laid courts. The surface, called Synpave, is a popular surface that caters for both tennis and netball players.
