Wilding Park Tennis Centre has been the hub of Canterbury tennis for nearly a century. Land purchased in the early 1920’s was dedicated to a tennis centre named for Frederick Wilding, father of Anthony Wilding, New Zealand Wimbledon champion 1910-1913 and inductee into the International Tennis Hall of Fame.


Wilding Park hosts 6 indoor tennis courts and 18 outdoor plexipave courts. Wilding Park is also the only tennis facility in New Zealand to provide SmartCourt technology. SmartCourt is a valuable tool for training our elite athletes and is available for public use, see to register.
