Welcome to Stratfield Mortimer Parish Council Tennis Courts
Stratfield Mortimer is located just south of Reading in West Berkshire.
The Fairground dominates the centre of the village and is where the two asphalt tennis courts are located (beside the Community Centre building).
The courts are open to the public for pay-and-play during daylight hours and are also used by Mortimer Tennis Club.
Please note that the tennis courts are not flood lit and that there are no changing facilities on site.
“It's no accident, I think, that tennis uses the language of life. Advantage, service, fault, break, love, the basic elements of tennis are those of everyday existence, because every match is a life in miniature. Even the structure of tennis, the way the pieces fit inside one another like Russian nesting dolls, mimics the structure of our days. Points become games become sets become tournaments, and it's all so tightly connected that any point can become the turning point. It reminds me of the way seconds become minutes become hours, and any hour can be our finest. Or darkest. It's our choice.”
― Andre Agassi
