Tennis in John Coles Park

In January 2022, the Amenities, Culture and Leisure Committee approved a project for the Town Council to work with the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) to install a booking system for the tennis courts in John Coles Park. 

Since then, funding has been sourced to install a new gate at the tennis courts, and the booking system has been set up. The new system launched on Monday 3 June 2024.

You can also book through the Clubspark Booker app which can be downloaded to a smartphone.

To book a court, you will need to create an account with the LTA. If you already have an account, you will be able to use your existing account to make a court booking at John Coles Park.

Once you have booked and paid online, you will receive a 4-digit pin code sent to your email which you will need to use to open the gate at the tennis courts.

You can book up to 7 hours per week, one week at a time for a cost of £6.00 per hour.  The clear and accessible booking system will enable tennis players to plan their week ahead and be assured there will be a court available for them to play on through the booking system.

The income generated from court bookings will sustain the tennis courts for years to come.

Chippenham Park Tennis Club will still have their block bookings in place in line with their lease agreement. If you would like to know more information about the club, please visit their website
