Welcome to the Totton & Eling Tennis Centre

Coronavirus (Covid-19) – Update 22nd February

Whilst the Totton & Eling Tennis Centre is currently closed, the government has announced that outdoor tennis courts will be able to open from 29th March. This will allow all recreational tennis to resume, including singles and doubles social play, group and individual coaching. Further details, including maximum group size, are subject to confirmation, however, we will update this information as this is confirmed. We look forward to getting you back on court soon!


Our 8 floodlit tennis courts are open for pay-and-play court hirers, membership subscribers and coaching sessions. With online court booking and automated gate access via pin number, we are well placed to offer a service that meets social distancing guidelines. The courts are open each day from 08:00-21:30. Pay-and-play courts cost £8 per hour and can be booked up to 72 hours in advance.

Junior coaching groups are available for children and young people aged 4-17 and we also have a variety of adult group coaching sessions. All new participants are welcome to attend a free trial of a suitable group, and we may also organise a short assessment session. Please email or call us to arrange.

We ask that all customers please observe the government’s and national governing body’s guidelines: https://www.lta.org.uk/coronavirus.
