Despite the increased costs in managing the court we have decided not to increase the hourly charge for hiring the court this year so it remains £24 per hour.  This is still below the pre Covid lockdown hourly charge. The 10% discount if you book 10 or more sessions is still in place.

Great app for beginning & advanced players

Being new in a city, it can be hard to find new friends, but with the help of Spin I was able to find new tennis friends. Another plus is that the design of the app is quite stylish and easy to navigate. A tournament feature adds to the positive experience.28 Jun 2022
