Now open for play!

The recent refurbishment of Poole Park Tennis Courts now sees the courts being operated via an access key system which is managed in-house by the Recreation Development Team.

The target set with the Lawn Tennis Association for access key sales for the first year has already been reached with over 180 now sold!

The courts are being well used most evenings during this Wimbledon week, seeing play to rival some of the top seeds opponents!

To apply for your access key (£24 for the year) please visit www.boroughofpoole.com/tennis

The on site coaching programme is also in full swing and offers something to suit everyone.
