Ace prices and new mobile-friendly bookings for Stoke Park Tennis Courts

We are making it easier for residents to book our Stoke Park Tennis Courts with a new mobile-friendly booking system - and reducing prices for under 18s to inspire a new generation of tennis fans.

We are working with Premier Tennis to manage our bookings.

Mobile bookings open on Saturday 17 April, for sessions starting on Saturday 24 April, at  

https://tennissurrey.com/courts or by emailing hello@premiertennis.co.uk

To get more young people interested in tennis, the hourly price for under-18s is now £6 per hour - the same as over-65s. Adult bookings are £7.50 per hour. 

Ian Doyle, Director of Service Delivery says: 

"It is great to see so many of our residents enjoying playing tennis and using our courts again. We want to make booking our courts easier and mobile bookings will be a quicker and better experience for our residents. It has been a difficult year for sport and with government restrictions easing, now is the perfect time to get out and play tennis. Following the national lockdown its important that we look after our mental and physical wellbeing."

Premier Tennis are a tennis coaching and management company set up in 2004 run by former professional players and coaches. They aim to improve lives through tennis by coaching and helping people enjoy the sport.  

Director of Tennis at Premier Tennis, former British Doubles Number 1 and Davis Cup player, James Auckland says: 

"We're delighted to be working in partnership with Guildford Borough Council to help promote tennis and an active lifestyle across Guildford. Our purpose is simple, whether it's by finding and booking a court online in seconds or re-discovering tennis through our engaging community coaching programme - we strive to improve people's lives through tennis." 

Mobile bookings for our Stoke Park courts will be available for an initial trial period of 18 months. You can continue to book the tennis courts at Sutherland Memorial Park here: www.guildford.gov.uk/sportspitchesandcourts.
