Welcome to Spencer Park

Covid 19 - Courts closed from 5th November 2020

Due to the Covid lockdown, the tennis courts will close on Wednesday 4th November at 5.00pm.
I don't know if we will be able to open them again in December, this will depend on the government but also the state of the courts, as if the weather is wet and the courts are not played on the moss will get worse.

Please don't join in November as we don't know if the courts wil be open. 

Covid- 19 Spencer Park Tennis courts will re open on Saturday 16th May 2020.

Spencer Park Community Tennis Club (SPTC) was established in April 2016.  The  aim of the club is to facilitate continued use of the four tennis courts in Spencer Park given that the local authority no longer has the resources to provide staff to regulate admission to and booking of the courts.  To use these facilities you have to join SPTC by either registering on this site as a family member or by sending an email request to [email protected]  Membership costs £25 per year.  You will be provided with the access code for the lock on the gate to the courts.  Please note that the courts will not be in use if the surface is wet or icy. 

This website, provided by the Lawn Tennis Association, allows you to book your court in advance. Priority use of a court will be given to those who have made a booking via this website.

Spencer Park Community Tennis Club is part of the Friends of Spencer Park, Registered Charity Number 1176323
