              Anyone for tennis? Come to Central Square

              With the improving weather, The Trust’s two tennis courts on

              Central Square are a great place to improve your ball skills, or

              just have a friendly match.

              Both courts, which have recently been refurbished, are free to

              use for all Suburb residents and their guests. Advance booking is

              advised as the courts are both very popular.

              Just visit to make your free booking.

              Please  note  that  these  courts  are  only  to  be  used  by  those

              people who have booked for a specific time period. They are

              strictly not to be used for coaching/lessons, by non-residents,

              nor for any other purpose than tennis.

              If  you  have  any  queries,  please  contact  the  Trust  office  at

     or ring 020 8455 1066.
