Meadows Tennis

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 during the rest of the year before 4pm (Monday to Friday - excluding July, August and school holidays).  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.
