Below is information in addition to that of the LTA rules above that is applicable to Bristol Parks Tennis

  • Please arrive 5 mins after your start time and leave 5 mins before the end of your finish time.
  • Please wait outside of the court area until your court is empty then proceed through the coded gate. If you need to prompt people to leave the court, please politely do this from outside of the court fencing.
  • Please bring with you hand sanitiser or another means to wash your hands, as there will be no cleaning facilities available.
  • At St George and Canford Park, court 1 will not be in action – do not play on these courts.
  • Spectators should use the park and view the tennis through the fencing – they are not allowed on the courts.
  • If you are playing doubles you must all be from the same household, please have proof of this with you.

We will be placing booking restrictions on the courts. These restrictions are a maximum booking length of 2 hours and you can make a maximum of 3 bookings in a 7-day period. You can book courts up to 7 days in advance. As we progress, we will review, as necessary.

Coaching is currently not permitted on the courts in any of the three parks (Eastville, St George and Canford).  We are currently working through the process of risk assessing this.  If you are an LTA accredited coach wishing to use these facilities then please email Richard.colman@wesport.org.uk and we will let you know what the process is, if we get this approved.

Please remember that we are fortunate to be able to play tennis. Help us to keep this happening by following the rules.
