Tennis 2019 Term One Season Tennis is a very popular sport played in Terms One and Four. In Term One, there are two levels, Junior (Years 9 and 10) and Senior (Years 11-13). In Term Four, only Junior teams have inter-school competition and this is held over five weeks after Labour Weekend. In Term One 2019, King's College will enter 14 teams of 6 players to participate in the Auckland Secondary Schools' competition, which is played over 7 or 8 weeks, including a Finals round. Our inter-school teams cater for tournament-level players and club-level participation. We also run an internal King's players-only season for a further 40 players who will play in a tournament format over 5 weeks. The College employs professional tennis coaching services from King's Old Collegain and ex-Davis Cup player Mark Nielsen and his coaching team. All students who play in a King's Team will receive weekly professional coaching during the season. There is a fee disbursed for this professional coaching.
