Refurbished Tennis Courts At
Victoria Park will be open on
Monday March 6th

The Victoria Park tennis courts will be open for bookings from Monday 6 March 2017 in Victoria Park after being closed for refurbishment over the last few months.

The tennis courts refurbishment cost in excess of £100,000 and was funded from the legal settlement secured by the Council last year, together with a £39,893 grant from the Lawn Tennis Association.

There is now a new online booking system called ‘Clubspark’ to allow people to register and book online. The annual cost for membership is just £36 which will allow a whole family to play unlimited times within a year. You can also book online on a ‘pay and play’ basis, costing £6 per game.

Once you have booked online, you are given an access code to enter the courts, guaranteeing that your court is booked and ready for you when you arrive. Further details on the booking process are on our website

Cllr Dave Goff, Leader of the Council said,

“We have waited a long time for this and we are very excited to at last announce that the tennis courts are ready to play on. We will have an official launch on Saturday 8 April 2017 with our new tennis coach and representatives from the Lawn Tennis Association. The icing on the cake will be the laying down of a full coloured playing surface which (subject to the weather) will be completed before the grand opening”.
