Located next to the Mountbatten Centre, the £1.33m centre was officially opened by former Lord Mayor of Portsmouth, Cllr Lynne Stagg, and former British number one, Greg Rusedski.
The centre provides brand new facilities for anyone interested in playing tennis for the first time, those wanting to improve their game or simply playing for fun and fitness. Facilities at the venue include:
- four indoor courts, six outdoor courts, and eight indoor mini tennis courts
- free car parking
- use of changing facilities at the adjacent gymnastics centre.
The centre is operated by BH Live in partnership with Portsmouth City Council. BH Live offers a comprehensive programme of activities for all ages and abilities including junior sessions to develop children's enjoyment of tennis through fun activities based on balance, co-ordination, agility, movement and racquet and ball skills. Teen tennis focuses on developing skills amongst young people aged between 11 and 16 years.
Adult sessions include fun cardio sessions set to music, Tennis Xpress coaching sessions for beginners and intermediates covering key techniques and tactics, or you can simply pay and play.
