Bristol Parks Tennis

The tennis courts at Canford, Eastville and St George Park are currently open and experiencing very high levels of usage.

There are currently restrictions on court usage in place in all three parks to allow fair access for as many people as possible.

  •  You will be limited to 3 bookings in a rolling 7 day period
  •  A court booking is limited to 1 hour

It is important that you can cancel a court if you do not wish to use it.  We have removed the cancellation "no refund" window for pay and play users, to encourage the cancellation of courts.  If you do not use a court and fail to cancel the booking then a 7-day ban on booking courts will be applied to your account.  GUIDE TO CANCELLING COURTS
