There are two tennis courts which are owned by the Recreation Ground Trust and managed by volunteers for the use of the local community. The courts are situated in Debden Recreation Ground adjacent to the play area. Anyone is welcome to book the courts and enjoy playing either for fun or more competitively.

Latest Update - Tennis courts closed

UPDATE: Lockdown restictions

The Government has announced new national restrictions for England between Thursday 5 November – Wednesday 2 December.

Despite the LTA and tennis community making a strong case to Government, we can confirm that the new restrictions mean that tennis activity in England is not permitted for the duration of the national lockdown, as a result of the closure of all outdoor and indoor facilities.  The only exceptions to this are for elite tennis players, and for tennis activity in schools, colleges and other educational establishments as part of education.

Whilst we are disappointed with the outcome, we must urge all involved with tennis in England to adhere to the decision that the Government has taken.

We know these restrictions will have a significant impact on the whole tennis community, and our focus now will switch to campaigning to ensure that as much grassroots tennis activity as possible can resume as soon as possible, including both indoor and outdoor tennis.
