New town planning rules proposed for Auckland would mean tennis clubs with floodlights couldn’t use the lights after 6pm on Sundays or public holidays. What sort of sad bureaucratic madness is that?!!
Luckily, in Wellington, in the best little tennis club in the country — Wellington Tennis Club, of course — we can play till 10pm every night, 365 days of the year.
But don’t forget, lights off at 10pm sharp please. We value the goodwill of our neighbours.
