Next Generation ASB Tennis Centre Redevelopment Set for July Completion

Next Generation ASB Tennis Centre Redevelopment Set for July Completion
January 28, 2011

The redeveloped ASB Tennis Centre in the Auckland suburb of Parnell is set to be completed in July, resulting in what has been described as "the flashest sport and leisure club in Australasia."

The $26 million redevelopment by Next Generation Clubs is surprising many as usage costs for the facility will apparently remain unchanged.

Next Generation Chief Executive Scott Lloyd explains âin terms of pay as you play, it will cost exactly the same as it always did (with) the pricing structure from before construction will stay the same.

"People will still be able to come and use some of the courts on a one-off basis - though if they are regular players, they will find it increasingly beneficial and cost-effective to join the club."

Lloyd, the son of former British professional David and nephew of ex-pro John, expects membership will cost in the region of the $130-$155 a month that is currently paid at their four Australian clubs.

Other reports have said that the yearly subscription could be up to $3,500, though Lloyd is quick to stress that there are over 20 different categories of memberships.

"There are different tiers - it could be just fitness or including racquets, or including spa."

Next Generation have made a huge investment and they will be expecting to recoup. They have the sub-lease from Auckland Tennis for 25 years and hope to attract in excess of 3,000 members.

It has been marketed as "an inner-city country club" and "your home away from home". Next Generation say their aim is to create "a family lifestyle around health, sport and leisure".

The redevelopment of the tournament facilities, which will encompass the club, was long overdue and necessary and will be of immense benefit to the ASB Classic and Heineken Open. Feedback from players over the past fortnight has been overwhelmingly positive, even though large areas are incomplete.

In addition to fitness facilities, the Next Generation Club will also offer 25 metre indoor and outdoor swimming pools, 12 tennis courts (with five available to the general public), an events and function centre as well as hairdresser and retail shops. It will also have a licensed bar and undercover parking for over 150 cars.
