Located near Holborn Station, the courts are accessible via public transport so you can travel to the grounds easily all week round. Monday to Sunday, Lincoln’s Inn Fields are open from 8am till Dusk for a day’s worth of matches if you so wish.

In between the hustle and bustle of Central London, a game of tennis is a great opportunity to relax after work. Southwark’s Colombo Centre is there to meet your needs and help you hone your skillset.
