Manchester has many fine tennis facilities for grassroots sports players to book online with Playfinder. Most of the tennis courts are made from the macadam surface, but there are hard, indoor and astroturf surface options too. A good portion of the Manchester tennis venues have floodlights on the outdoor courts which enable games to go on through the year, if it’s not raining too hard. Tennis clubs around Greater Manchester also host tennis tournaments for players wanting a regular competitive challenge. Rackets and tennis balls can be hired at some venues, but please confirm before placing an online booking for a tennis court.
