Problem with phone lines - 15 July

We are currently experiencing a problem with poor call quality. Please contact us via our online forms or at for any non-urgent enquiries.


We have 18 free-to-use tennis courts around the city. There is no need to book them, but you do need to bring your own rackets and balls.

  • If people are waiting to use the court, please limit your playing time to 45 minutes, or offer to play doubles.
  • Please be considerate to neighbours and limit noise on the court, especially early in the morning or late at night.
  • Please take all your litter with you when you leave the court.
  • Private coaching is not allowed.

Please let us know if the courts or nets are damaged in any way.

The courts are located at:

Temporary courts for summer

The courts will be free to use, and you will not need to book them. You’ll need to bring your own equipment, including your own pop-up net if you want one.
