Jubilee Tennis Court & Games Area

The tennis court is for TENNIS ONLY – no bikes, skateboards or dogs and please ensure that
you wear appropriate tennis/training shoes when playing on the court.

All facilities are used at your own risk.

People must observe social distancing of 1m+ and not congregate in large groups.   Thank you.

To book a court, please visithttps://tangleyparishplayingfieldbookings.skedda.com

Please do not book the court for more than 2 hours at a time to allow fair usage of our facility
If you are more than 10 minutes late for your booking then other players can use the court.

Tokens for the floodlights are available from Westwood House, Wildhern (opposite the village hall entrance) for £1 per token which gives you one hour of lighting should you wish to play tennis during the late afternoon/evening.   Sarah can be contacted on 07957 969712

Coaching on the Tennis Court or in the Cricket Nets
We are very happy for coaches to book our tennis court and cricket nets but in return we do ask for a contribution of £4/hour when you are charging for lessons to help us maintain the facilities.  Please pay Sarah Haswell who lives  at Westwood House opposite the playing field – tel. no. 07957 969712

Booking the Cricket Nets
Due to popular demand, we have increased the scope of our booking system and the second ‘court’ can now be booked (which is the cricket net) through our Skedda booking system).  Coaching in the nets is £4/hour as above for the tennis court.

 

How the Project Came About

In 2010 a committee was formed to start fund-raising for a multi-user games area but after circulating a survey to everybody in the parish it became apparent that the main wish was to have a community tennis court with adjoining facilities for cricket, football and boules. In 2012 Tangley Parish Council were awarded £50,000 of Sport England funding and grants from TVBC and HPFA to build a tennis court, practise fence, cricket net, games area and small pavillion on the playing field at Tangley Parish Village Hall, Wildhern. In addition to external funding, a substantial sum of money was raised from personal pledges from the wonderful people of our parish.  The facilities are free for use by parishioners and the extended community and will enable families with children of all ages to engage in some form of activity on the playing field.  Coaching sessions and tennis nights are planned once the court is finished and the amenity will be a huge asset to the locality. The tennis court and adjoining games facilities were officially opened by the Rt Hon Sir George Young MP on Monday, 6th May 2013.
