Southwark council wants to grow physical activity across the community as stated in the Active Southwark strategy 2019-2023. One area where it wants to make a difference is through tennis in park sites.
As part of this a new free booking system will launch on the 20th April to allow people to reserve court time at Southwark Park, Tanner Street Park, Brunswick Park, Belair Park, and Dulwich Park. This will address the frustration of waiting for courts that is experienced at the moment.
A Southwark tennis website will be created that will bring together information about local opportunities, access to court booking systems, all in one place. At the moment information is hard to find.
