As the tennis season hits full speed, residents in North Tyneside will now be able to book courts in 2 local parks online. Souter Park and Crawford Park have both enlisted the support of the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) and ‘Clubspark' technology to enable bookings via a new website – www.northtynesidetennis.co.uk
Local players can book a court at Souter Park via www.northtynesidetennis.co.uk for just £5 per hour. The 2 hard courts at Crawford Park can also be booked online, free of charge, from 8am-10pm during the week and 9am-10pm at the weekend. Both parks are easily accessible from West Monkseaton metro station.
For those looking for some friendly competition, the 2 sites have also paired up with Local Tennis Leagues. Perfect for those who want to play singles matches against new people, players arrange matches at a time and location which suits them – and the new online booking system at Souter and Crawford Park will make arranging league ties easier than ever! The leagues are open to adults of all abilities, with the next round starting on Thursday 22nd June. For more information visit www.localtennisleagues.com/northtyneside.
Closer to the Tyne, nearby Richardson Dees Park is also running free weekly family tennis sessions. The sessions, funded by the LTA and Sport North Tyneside, run every Tuesday from 5.30-6.30pm. There is no need to book and rackets, courts, balls and coaches will all be provided - so just turn up get on court with the family! The park will also be hosting a Summer Family Fun Day on Friday 4th August from 11-2pm serving up tennis as well as face painting, family fun and games and a smoothie bike!
