Running Free Park Tennis sessions



Play your part in helping people in your community play tennis for free at your local park.

Your support may be the reason why someone picks up a racket for the first time and discovers a new sport for life.

Free Park Tennis sessions wouldn’t be possible without the incredible work of volunteer Activators. These teams work together to plan and lead fun activities on court as well as collaborating with venues and operators to more people get active and enjoy tennis with free weekly sessions.

We’re looking for more people to join their local team of volunteers and help make a difference in the community.

You don’t need to be a coach or even have that much experience playing tennis, anyone can become a Free Park Tennis Activator – we’ll give you everything you need to succeed.
