General information

We have 8 floodlit tennis courts available for hire, coaching and membership. The centre is located at Hanger Farm, close to both Southampton and the New Forest. There is a lovely clubhouse and patio overlooking the courts. For a whole day out, there is even a playing field, playground and paddling pool on site. We are open 7 days-per-week, all-year-round, and have lots of parking available.

Our most popular activity is our tennis coaching programme for children. We also have hundreds of local people who hire the tennis courts online, or who have gone on to become members.
