Tennis launches in Waltham Forest

Share this

New tennis courts are being served up for free as a borough-wide scheme hopes to get more people playing.

The “state-of-the-art” courts in Ridgeway Park in Chingford opened on May 12 ahead of the 'Great British Tennis Weekend' on May 14th & 15th which offered free-to-play activities for all ages & abilities. 

The park now features six floodlit outdoor tennis courts, two mini tennis courts, a multi-use games area and a new pavilion.  

A council-led scheme called Play Tennis Waltham Forest is asking people to pay £30 a year for “unlimited tennis” at courts in Abbotts Park, Chingford Memorial Park, Lloyd Park and Aveling Park. Families can alternatively pay £45 a year to play tennis on one of the borough’s 18 full-size courts and four mini courts.

All courts can be booked up to seven days in advance online - just go to the 'where to play' tab to find out more.

Don't worry if you missed the Great British Tennis Weekend in May as it's back on the 16th & 17th July and you can reserve your FREE session now by visiting the Ridgeway Park page in the 'where to play' section of the home page.

We look forward to seeing you on court soon!
