We are delighted to announce that our new online booking system and annual memberships are now in effect. If you experience any difficulties while trying to book, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01276 707229.
Surrey Heath Borough Council operates 4 parks tennis venues across the borough, each hosted within one of our recreation grounds. These offer the perfect environment to develop tennis skills, whether you play recreationally with friends or family or would like more formal coaching.
We have been working in partnership with the LTA to bring a valuable and sustainable tennis offer to residents, which includes the introduction of Clubspark, a simple customer-friendly online booking and payment system. This will be supported by a community tennis programme delivered by partner coaching providers, better promotion of courts and targeted opportunities for free tennis.
The new Surrey Heath ‘Tennis in the Park’ booking and payment system could not be easier to use and you can book up to 2 hours of tennis every day through a choice of membership and payment options.
Why have we made the changes?
The first stage of the change process was to host a public consultation to understand the views and motivations of both those who were already using parks tennis courts but also those who don’t.
In response to this, in summer 2018 we re-painted the courts at London Road Recreation Ground and introduced a gate-access system for the site compatible with Clubspark. London Road Recreation Ground has been designated as the pilot site for the gate system with aspirations to introduce gate-access technology at the remaining parks tennis venues in the next few years.
As well as helping players to find and book an available court whenever they want to play, maintaining courts has become increasingly expensive and bearing in mind the future reductions in local government funding, it is important that the courts make themselves sustainable for the years to come. The income derived from the booking system will contribute towards the long-term maintenance cost of the courts.
When booking for the first time, you will need to decide whether our traditional “Pay and Play” or great value “Annual Tennis Pass” option will work best for you and then register (please visit the membership page for more information).
Once you have registered and returned to the homepage, you can book a court either by scrolling down the page and clicking on the venue that you would like to play at OR go to the ‘Book a Court‘ page for more information.
This annual membership allows for a household of up to 5 people to play Tennis in the Park all year round for just £39 a year – the equivalent of just £3.25 a month!
