Tennis is a great way to get active, keep fit and socialise and there are numerous tennis programmes available for all levels in York.

See more information regarding tennis courts in York, including details of pay-and-play bookings at either Rowntree Park or Hull Road Park.

Rowntree park

Tennis for all York hold a number of different coaching sessions, available for all ages and ability levels at Rowntree Park.

The park offers a picturesque setting for the community tennis programme. We offer a full range of coaching without membership fees, allowing participants to pay as they play, per session.

The programme runs April to September. During the winter months a reduced programme has sessions taking place during daylight hours.

All sessions are run by Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) Licensed Tennis Coach, Andy Crockett:

Hull Road Park

After a successful programme last year we are continuing adult coaching lessons at Hull Road Park.

The sessions are aimed at beginners or adults who haven’t played for while and would like to get back into the swing of things. The sessions will be lead by a fully qualified LTA coach, to support you along the way.

The sessions are for 10 weeks and cost £3.50 per session or £30 for 10 weeks.

Tennis League

If you've been meaning to get back into tennis or would like to play more and meet people to play, you can join the York Tennis League. It's open to men and women (aged 18 and over) and is a singles league for players of all standards. Everyone is welcome.

Players are organised into groups and arrange a mutually convenient time to play over 8-week periods running throughout the year. Any court that suits both players can be used. There are prizes and free balls for everyone who completes 3 matches by the half-way point.
