Hi Jonathan, here is what I could find on the Traveller's site -- "The tennis season runs from: Summer: 8th October - 18th April with a short break over Christmas Winter: from 5th May through to 26th September – it may be possible to arrange some tennis coaching at the tennis clubs during these months, although it will be limited and mixed with general sports coaching at the schools during the day...

Good Times in Auckland - Day and Night

Day to day was spent at the school, whether it be in helping in the outdoor swimming pool with teaching pupils to swim or within a classroom helping with individuas or groups. The work varied and every day brought its own challenges. Getting a glimpse of how school works in a different part of the World and the subjects they find important and how they are taught was the most interesting part of the experience for me. Days out at the local Tram Museum and at Cricket Tournaments were opportunities to see the children in a new environment and the supervision of them was fun, with groups of children wanting to show off and do their best whilst engaging in different activities.

The other part of life or me were the evenings and weekends. I was staying in a hostel with 15-20 other Travellers, all doing similar courses to myself, this enabled us all to relax or go out in the evenings. Much fun was had and included trips to the various beaches, nights out in Auckland, day trips to the zoo and aquarium and most importantly mini golf! The friends I met there will be friends for life having shared the best experience of my life with them.

If you get the chance, do something wild and volunteer in Auckland. A buzzing city with very nice people and a great culture.
