Tennis in the Community

Posted by: gm - Posted on:

As you may be aware, last year Sunderland City Council in partnership with the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA), refurbished 17 tennis courts across seven city parks at:

  • Barley Mow Park
  • Barnes Park
  • Hetton Park
  • Roker Park
  • Ryhope Park
  • Thompson Park
  • Usworth Park

Since the courts have been reopened, tennis players of all ages and abilities have been booking courts to play with family and friends.

We would now like to extend an offer to voluntary and community groups in and around the 17 tennis courts. 

We would like to offer your group the opportunity to book for FREE.  We can offer you:

  • A regular booking for your group
  • A 4-week group coaching offer from an experience tennis coach who will bring along equipment to get you started.
  • On completion of the above a tennis kit bag which includes everything that you will need to keep your sessions running
  • Information on LTA activator courses available to voluntary and community groups.

Please note this offer is on a first come first served basis, so if you would like to talk about this offer further, please contact Agnes Rowntree at [email protected] or 07586138149 to discuss the detail about how we can support your group to play tennis.
