Any person 35 yrs and over is eligible to play Seniors Tennis.  Players of any ability are welcome. Every effort is made to have people playing others of a similar ability.  The aim is to have fun playing and to enjoy socialising with other tennis players.

Mid Canterbury Tennis Seniors play in the Canterbury Country Tennis Seniors Sub Association Round Robin Competition.  This is usually played on the second Sunday of each month, November to March.  Matches are home or away.  Teams consist of up to 12 men and 12 ladies and we play doubles and mixed doubles.

As well as our opening and closing day Tournament in September and April, Mid Canterbury hosts a Seniors Tournament on the first Sunday of April - all players qualifying for Senior Tennis are able to enter this Tournament.  We also play matches against South Canterbury Vets on a home and away basis with a game at the start of the season and the second at the end of January.

Canterbury Country Tennis Seniors play representative matches against other Associations during the year.  Each sub Association is asked to field players to form a Rep team.  Matches are played on Sundays with some played over weekends if travel to distant venues is required.

There are many Tournaments played and all affiliated Seniors are eligible to enter these.  If you want to play tennis every weekend of the year you could.  The Schedule of Tournaments is published in the Canterbury Country Tennis Seniors Handbook.

Seniors are also invited to participate in other competitions including Wednesday Twilight, Thursday Sunset Doubles and Saturday afternoon Mixed Masters.  Like Seniors competitions, these are all doubles competitions.
