Tennis Things to do

Playfinder’s Top 5 Free Tennis Venues

After the government’s most recent announcement on the easing of lockdown, we have seen more and more tennis venues re-open to the public.

For so many of us in these last two months, there has been a sport shaped hole in our daily lives and keeping ourselves fit and healthy has been a challenge in itself, under these unprecedented circumstances.

Therefore, it is no surprise to see many people taking to the tennis courts and the golf courses since the easing of lockdown, and still making sure that social distancing measures are respected.

The LTA have released guidelines for tennis players and venues on how to ensure compliance with social distancing measures during play and being able to safely step on to the courts. These guidelines are available here.

So with longer days and the summer heat knocking at the door, we’ve put together a list of our Top 5 free tennis venues where you can enjoy a friendly set or two this in the coming days.
