What's the setup here?

The Tennis Club is run entirely by volunteers & is responsible for the management & upkeep of the 6 hard courts in the Park.

The 6 courts are all bookable online. 3 Courts are dedicated to Club Members (Courts 4,5 & 6). The other 3 Courts (1,2 & 3) are available to the public to book & are also bookable by Members at a discounted rate.

The Tennis Pavilion (on the river side next to Court 1) will be developed from 15th April to July 2024 to give us 2 toilets, changing rooms & a kitchenette. This is a Tennis Club initiative funded in part by us & in part by a Council Grant.

There is also a cafe in the Park with toilets.

The Friends of Rowntree Park is a Charity whose volunteers do amazing work in the Park with gardening, litter picking and helping the wildlife. They also run community events and projects with the emphasis on education, mental health and wellbeing. Click here for more info

Why choose Rowntree Park Tennis Club?

Our Club philosophy is that tennis is for everyone irrespective of age & ability.

But it's not only about the tennis. We have social activities happening across the year which help bring people together & form friendships.

We positively welcome new joiners & take great care to introduce them to existing Members so that they can quickly settle in.

There's a lot going on! Take a look at our Season 2024 launch Newsletter by clicking HERE (go to your DOWNLOADS folder to open the document).

We make extensive use of WhatsApp to communicate information to Members on Club activities. We are also on Instagram.
