Free accessible public tennis to the Watford Community Park Tennis in Watford

Park Tennis in Watford

The four local park tennis venues in the Borough are ideally located to provide the perfect environment to enjoy playing tennis with friends or family.  Tennis is a fantastic activity to help both the physical and mental wellbeing  and is a great example of an activity that can be undertaken in a way that is fun and enjoyable, whilst maintaining social distancing restrictions.

Through our partnership with the LTA we have implemented a managed online court booking system, allowing players to secure their court time for recreational play.

Watford public tennis courts are free for all members of the community to use and access safely.  However to help manage the use and fair access for everyone who wishes to play  we have introduced a simple and free booking process to allow you to reserve and book a court at any of the four park sites.

Please ensure you read and follow the simple steps below so you and others can safely play tennis on the public tennis courts.  

How to book the courts for free

Step 1: Read the latest COVID-19 Tennis Guidance information

Step 2: Either log in or create a ClubSpark account to register

Step 3: Please ensure you log in to ClubSpark, to unlock the booking sheet (login is in the top right corner)

Step 4: Select your venue and click "Book a Court" (either use the drop down list in the top right or click on the park listed below)

Step 5: Select your playing time and click to book.

Step 6: Complete your booking  and bring a copy of the booking confirmation email with you when play (print or save on your phone).

* Please note this system has been created to help manage the use of the public tennis courts  in light of the current situation.  Please only use the courts for the period you have booked and respect the self policing nature of reserving court time. You may be asked to provide proof of your court booking.

Watford Borough Council reserves the right to close tennis facilities if these measures are not respected.

Please note it is important that you make yourself aware and follow the guidance on COVID Guidance page


Coaches are not permitted to coach on any of our Park Tennis sites without written permission from the Council.
