Overview

Victoria Park tennis courts are being redeveloped as part of the City Mayor’s plans for the centenary walk development in that area. Leicester City Council is applying for funding from the Lawn Tennis Association to support the upgrading of the tennis courts on the park.

Victoria Park has four tennis courts; Leicester City Council are looking to pilot a free online booking system for 12 months. Use of the courts will remain free of charge. 

Three tennis courts will be available to pre book online and one court will always be available on a first come first served basis.

The council is also considering offering a pre-booking arrangement to Leicester University.

This would entail Leicester University having two courts available for training on a Wednesday afternoon and one evening a week (University term time only).

At least one court will be available for public use, at all times.
