If you're a regular visitor to The Meadows, you might have already heard the shouts and smashes of players having fun on our outdoor tennis courts.
Want to have a go? You can play on our courts for FREE from October to March and before 4pm Monday to Thursday and before 1pm on Friday April-June and September. At the weekends April-September you can play for free before 10am and after 6pm subject to court availability. If you want to play after dark we have floodlit courts available to book throughout the year. Come along and master your rallies with friends and enjoy some fresh air at the same time.
