Playing tennis in the park is an accessible and enjoyable way to have fun, exercise and meet people, whatever your age or playing ability. The tennis courts at Hayling Island Community Centre are available all year round.
Havant Borough Council (HBC) in partnership with Hayling Island Community Centre Association (HICCA) and the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) have implemented a booking and access system at Hayling Island park tennis courts.
Users are able to book and secure their court time, through an online booking system.
It has been highlighted by research that the public as a whole are not satisfied with the condition of public courts and the availability to book online. Therefore, in partnership with the LTA, HBC have improved our offer for users. We have:
- Repaired damaged areas of the courts,
- Repainted the courts,
- Replaced and re-tensioned the parameter fence line wire,
- Installed a locking gate with access technology.
The cost for a court is £7 per hour per court or alternatively pay a one off yearly price of £35 per household. There are also a number of access and membership options available.
HICCA administer the booking process.
This is a new and innovative way to manage open access tennis courts, offering sustainable and high quality courts available for all.
