Ampthill Great Park Tennis Courts are open 7 days a week 8.00am to 8.00pm. No booking required and no fee to pay.

Please see exceptions below -

The tennis courts normal opening hours are every day from 

The council are keen to encourage more tennis to be played in the park and have recently agreed to work with local tennis coach Justin Brooke to deliver a number of coaching sessions using the park courts. This will mean that the courts are not available to the general public for up to 7 hours a week.
The periods when the courts will not be available are as follows:-

Mondays     5.30pm – 6.30pm                                 
Tuesdays    7.30pm – 8.30pm
Fridays        4.30pm – 6.30pm
Saturdays    1.30pm – 3.30pm 

 

Also between the hours of 9.30am and 12.30pm over the summer holidays -

Monday 23rd July

Friday 27th July

Monday 30th July

Wednesday 1st August

Friday 3rd August

Monday 6th August

Wednesday 8th August

Friday 10th August

Wednesday 29th August

Friday 31st August

 

This arrangement will continue until the 1st September when the coaching arrangements will be reviewed. I would like to hear from tennis players how we could make playing tennis in the park easier and whether the coaching sessions restrict too much opportunities to play tennis or are considered a positive step to get more people playing.

We will be repeating the children’s tennis coaching as part of the family fun week during the summer holidays, we will post details of how children can book a session nearer the time.
