Auckland Grammar School offers Tennis at a junior and senior level with competitions held within the school and at regional and national events, including Tennis Nationals, Champion of Champions, and the traditional Quadrangular and Christchurch Exchange fixtures.
Teams are available for competitive players (that is, layers who have played interclub) and non-competitive players.
