Oaken Grove Park Tennis Courts K
We have two courts at Oaken Grove Park, near our Club on All Saints Avenue, that are available for booking by non-members for £5 an hour. Non-members can use the link at the top of the page to book and pay for these courts. Once a booking and payment has been made an email will be sent with the code for the padlock to unlock the courts. If a booking is made but not paid for, the booking will disappear from the system after 10 minutes. Bookings/payment can only be made online and cannot be made in person or over the phone.
The hour booking slots are colour coded to give priority booking for different groups. Red slots have coaching priority, blue slots have senior member priority. Grey slots can be booked by anyone, at anytime. When red/blue colour coding appears these slots can be booked by the priority group 8 days in advance, from 9pm, eg book from 9pm on Sunday for the following Monday. If the red/blue slots are not booked by the priority group, anyone can book them from 4 days in advance. If you are in any doubt about what coloured slot you can book, the court booking system will let you know if any restrictions are in place on the day/time you are booking.
