Tennis Northern Inc. is an amateur sports body promoting and managing the game of tennis from the Harbour Bridge to Cape Reinga. The organization's mission is to get more people playing more tennis more often.

Based at the Albany Tennis Centre, Tennis Northern Region (TNR) comprises 24 directly affiliating tennis clubs and a further 19 Northland tennis clubs. These clubs total 6,000 affiliated members. Tennis Northern is responsible for managing summer Interclub for 24 clubs, comprising over 800 Senior and Junior teams.

The Region is also responsible for organizing Junior Regional tournaments, selecting teams to represent the Region at national events, implementing national programmes and a Regional 'Supercity' youth academy (combined with Tennis Auckland).

Within the Albany Tennis Park, Regional staff delivers indoor winter leagues and national programmes in Cardio Tennis, Tennis Xpress (adult beginners) and Tennis Hotshots for children under ten. The center is used for the Regional 'Supercity' youth academy.

Tennis Northern became one of six regions (alongside Auckland, Waikato-Bays, Central, Canterbury, and Southern) affiliated to the sports national body- Tennis New Zealand. In 2008, Tennis Northland Inc. joined Tennis Northern as a Remaining Association.

There are two Tennis Northern facilities. The Albany Tennis Park is a pay to play facility with over 75,000 visitors each year.

 The Forrest Hill Tennis Centre is operated on Tennis Northern's behalf by Tennis Life.
