Palewell Common is a stunning 4 court site in East Sheen. 2 of the courts (courts 1 and 2) have been recently refurbished and the site provides a wonderful place to play tennis in a park setting. The courts are maintained by Richmond Council.  


Sheen Parks Tennis Coaching Services

The coaching on the site is provided by a team of local coaches at Sheen Parks Tennis managed by Kate and Caroline.

Details of all coaching can be found here.


For just £50 a year, you can play up to 1.5 hours of tennis a day, all year round, with the Council's family membership. Please visit the membership section on the Play Tennis Richmond Home Page for further details.

All membership and ‘Pay & Play’ fees are reinvested by the Council into improving public courts in the borough.
