Birkenhead Park is the World’s First publically funded park  designed by Sir Joseph Paxton in 1847 as a ‘park for the people’

A Grade 1 Listed heritage park that influenced the design of many parks including Central Park New York, it provides the perfect setting for a relaxing game of tennis.

The courts were refurbished to provide an excellent playing surface for playing all year round.

For those wanting to meet other players and develop their skills there is a community programme in place.
