Tennis in Elmbridge

Our Parks Tennis online booking system is up and running. However, if you experience any problems when trying to book a court, please refer to our troubleshooting guide.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) 

Online bookings for tennis courts are now open. Before you use the courts, please make sure you read the LTA guidelines on how to play safely during coronavirus.

Touchtennis courts closed

Touchtennis courts at Churchfields recreation ground, Weybridge will remain closed this year. They are smaller in size than traditional tennis courts, making it difficult to observe social distancing guidance. There is also no booking facility available for these court that would limit the number of players and keep everybody safe. We will be opening the touchtennis courts next spring provided we can do so in a safe way. In the meantime, feel free to book and play for free at the 12 parks tennis locations in Elmbridge. 

For further information, email, call 01372 474 474.
