Nottingham Tennis Centre
Nottingham Tennis Centre is the largest public tennis centre in Great Britain, including 40 courts including 11 covered courts, 13 grass courts and 16 outdoor hard courts.
It's also one of the largest community indoor tennis centres in the country, providing opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to get involved in tennis throughout the year.
The facilities are open to all members of the public and the local community, including users from the University of Nottingham.
The centre plays host to several high profile regional and national competitions throughout the year, as well as international events such as the Rothesay Open Nottingham and the British Open Wheelchair Tennis Championships.
The community programme at the Nottingham Tennis Centre welcomes over 1200 players every week to take part in a variety of activities – from junior coaching to social adult sessions.
The centre also boasts a fantastic disability tennis programme, with opportunities for visually impaired, learning difficulties and wheelchair tennis players to develop their skills and compete.
Nottingham Tennis Centre is one of our Regional Performance Development Centres (RPDC) – providing a world-class training environment for some of the best 14U players in the country. It's also home to one of our 10U Performance Programmes, supporting younger players on the performance pathway.
