The London Borough of Richmond upon Thames has eleven public tennis court sites across the Borough, welcoming people of all ages and abilities. Our brand new booking system enables you to book and pay for our high quality courts easily and quickly.


How to Book a Court


For any players looking to increase their booking time from the default 30 mins, please click on the dropdown tab after selecting the time you wish to play on the booking sheet. This will give you the option to increase to 1.5hours.


Each tennis venue can be found in the drop down menu in the top right hand corner of this page. From here, you are able to book a court under the bookings tab at each location. Simply register, select a time and date, book and pay for your court and then you’re ready to play! For all venues, please either print your booking confirmation or take a mobile phone with you that can display details of your booking as proof of your reservation. At a number of our sites, you will be provided with an access code upon completion of your booking which will gain you entry to the courts. Please ensure that you have this with you.  Bookings can be made 6 days in advance and we operate a 24 hour cancellation period.
