Practice Courts

We highly recommend attending the practise session on Friday 5 April 1300 to 1600 at Albany Tennis Park, particularly for those players who will be playing in their first GLTA sanctioned tournament. This is to ensure you’ve entered in the appropriate grade, as well as a great chance to meet fellow players before the official tournament begins.

If you wish to have additional practise on the Albany Tennis Park courts before the tournament commences you can book these online up to 7 days in advance, with a maximum time of 2 hours per booking.


The Rainbow Games aim to provide everyone with a meaningful experience, therefore participants can expect Round Robin play before knockout matches begin (semifinals will be dependant on the number of boxes). If there are too few entries in any particular category we may be required to combine grades (we will reach out to you if this occurs).

The draws will be available to view on GLTA Tournament Software by Thursday 4 April.āmakiMakaurauAuckland2024
