Running Free Park Tennis sessions



Free Park Tennis is a new programme that gives more people the chance to play tennis – offering fun, social tennis sessions at a local park court near you.

Sessions are free for all ages and abilities, running for one hour every Saturday or Sunday at 10:00 and are led by our team of trained volunteers – also known as Free Park Tennis Activators.

Free Park Tennis Activators work together as a team to run fun games and exercises that will help more people get active for free and discover their love for tennis.
