About Thanckes Park Tennis Courts


Torpoint Town Council and the LTA have worked in partnership to invest in and refurbish public park tennis courts in Thanckes Park. Both courts in Thanckes Park next to Thanckes Park Play Park, sitting above The Lawn, have been renovated with investment of £60,000 helping to ensure that high 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. Click here for more information

Park tennis courts are vital in providing opportunities for children and adults to get active, delivering significant physical and mental health and wellbeing benefits to participants. Accessible facilities in parks are particularly critical to opening up the sport to those from lower socioeconomic backgrounds and women and girls.

In addition to investment of £40,000 from the UK Government and LTA Tennis Foundation, £20,000 is being invested by Torpoint Town Council, this includes donations received for the project.

Alongside the investment, Torpoint Town Council will also work with the LTA to deliver a range of activity on these tennis courts. This will include weekly organised free park tennis sessions for all ages, playing levels and experience where equipment is provided, meaning that people will not need someone to play with or their own racket. Local Tennis Leagues will also provide friendly, sociable, opportunities to get active through local competition.


Fields in Trust

Thanckes Park is registered as a protected Field in Trust, the only charity in the UK working to protect parks and green spaces for good. To learn more about Fields in Trust and how to get involved please click here.
