Bracknell Parks Tennis
To encourage use of our excellent floodlit courts at Jocks Lane Park we have introduced an online system to gain access to the courts. For £55.60 per household for the year you will be able to play as many times as you want. The courts at Great Hollands recreation ground are now available to book online, however floodlighting is not yet currently available.
To join, register on-line with Bracknell Parks Tennis at www.bracknellparkstennis.com or complete a form at one of our pavilion shops. (Please note this does not include membership for The Parks – please see the link at the bottom of the page).
You can make bookings and will be able to gain entry when you have registered.
Bookings can either be made on-line, directly through the bookings system, which allows you to choose a court date and time up to 8 days in advance. There will also be an opportunity for one off games at £5.60 per hour on the day by phoning the pavilion shops.
Any court bookings must be for personal use only. No coaching is to be carried out on these courts unless authorised by Bracknell Town Council or Matthew Reid.
