About Us

Together with the LTA (Lawn Tennis Association) we have invested over £500,000 to refurbish 3 public park tennis venues in Torquay, Paignton and Brixham to ensure that quality facilities are available for the local community. 

The project is part of a nationwide investment by the UK Government and LTA Tennis Foundation, delivered by the LTA, to refurbish public tennis courts across Great Britain, and open up the sport to many more people. This investment will see thousands of existing park tennis courts in poor or unplayable condition brought back to life for the benefit of communities across the country through renovation works, and improved court accessibility with new gate-access technology and booking systems.

Park tennis courts are vital in providing opportunities for children and adults to get active whilst delivering significant physical and mental health and wellbeing benefits to participants. Torbay Park Tennis are delighted to offer 15 fantastic tennis courts located access our 3 towns delivering accessible tennis to our communities. 

So join Torbay Park Tennis today and get outdoors, get active and start getting invovled in tennis. Game on!
