Important Update

New Tennis charges from Monday 1st November 2021

Southwark Council is committed to providing safe and attractive park tennis courts alongside the provision of high quality coaching programmes that offer opportunities for beginners, young people and older residents alike. In order to deliver against this commitment, the council has taken a decision to introduce charges to more tennis courts in the borough this autumn - at Southwark Park, Tanner Street, Brunswick Park, Belair Park, and Dulwich Park. This approach will generate income, which can then be invested back into maintenance and tennis development.

The new charge will match the prices already in place at Geraldine Mary Harmsworth Park. Charges will be offered at a peak and off peak rate, and will be reviewed annually, so that they are in keeping with pricing in other London Boroughs. This approach is in line with most other London Boroughs, which have been charging for park tennis for many years. It is also anticipated that the introduction of charges will free up park tennis for more Southwark residents, as the free nature of these courts has attracted players from other boroughs where provision is not free.

In addition, in order to maximise accessibility and encourage physical activity for Southwark’s young people, all residents (under 18) of Southwark will be eligible for a free junior membership. This will enable them to play for free, for half an hour every day, including with friends or family members at the five park tennis courts. Apply for junior membership here
