If your passion lies with tennis, why not take a look at our Oxstalls facility. We have 6 indoor and 4 outdoor tennis courts to choose from – so whether you are simply wanting a game with friends, looking to improve your skills with tennis lessons or maybe even take part in a cardio tennis fitness session, there are plenty of options to choose from.

The tennis courts are open to everyone on a pay and play basis – so you don’t need to have a membership to get a game. You simply pay each time you use a court. What’s more, the price you are charged is calculated on the lowest priced player. So if an adult and a junior play together, you pay the junior rate.

You don’t even need your own equipment as we have a wide range of tennis rackets and balls which can be hired on site.
