27 outdoor Surrey tennis courts and clubs where adults and children can play

Indoor gyms and leisure centres cannot reopen in England until July 25, however many outdoor tennis courts are now available for people to use.

Tennis is great fun for all ages and abilities, plus it is cheap to play and requires little equipment.

During lockdown, sport facilities across Surrey including play parks and football pitches were closed to the public to stop the spread of coronavirus.

But with things starting to reopen, options are opening up. If you and your family are starting to get bored of running, walking or cycling, a game of tennis might be just for you.

Below is a list of both public and club tennis courts open in Surrey and how to book a slot. While some are pay as you go, others require an annual pass.
