Ampthill Great Park Tennis Courts

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:-

Monday 5.30 – 6.30pm
Tuesday 7.30 – 8.30pm
Friday 4.30 – 6.30pm
Saturday 1.30 – 3.30pm 

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.
Refurbishment of the courts will start on Friday 1st June, the courts will be closed for this day. a further 2 days of closure will follow shortly afterwards (dates to be confirmed) to complete the refurbishment.

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.
