Manor House Gardens

We have an active tennis coaching programme at Manor House Gardens for both adults and juniors.

Manor House Gardens boasts a clean river, a lake, abundant wildlife, history, a community café, play space, and gardens, along with a successful community school. Recently awarded the coveted Green Flag, it’s Lewisham’s ‘Jewel in the Crown.’

Alongside the two new tennis courts, you will also find a multi-use Ball Court, outdoor gym equipment, a dog-exercise area, a community garden, and a beautiful meadow.

The community café hosts numerous events, making it a hub for picnics, exercise, contemplation, and recreation.

Sydenham Wells Park

Feel totally immersed in nature at Sydenham Wells Park.

These two courts are tucked away at the side of the park, surrounded by trees. You’ll find free water on tap in the middle of the park, in front of the brick storage building.

There is also an outdoor gym space, should you wish to warm up (or down) before you game.

Just a stones throw from the park is the excellent Snuffle Dog Cafe & Wine bar where you will find some excellent coffee and delicious sweet and savoury snacks. Dog not (necessarily) required!

Catford Bridge

These two courts have been totally refurbished and like all of our venues, offer an excellent playing surface.

They are close to our five courts in Ladywell Fields, just a short walk through the park space, following the river.

The courts are nestled away in their own little square of greenery and calm, just a stones throw from Catford Bridge Station.

There is a row of shops, including a Sainsbury’s local, just a 5 minute walk from the courts.

Telegraph Hill

Telegraph Hill Park lies between Nunhead and Brockley and is made up of two sections. The upper park offers magnificent views over London.

The tennis courts are brand new and offer a superb surface to enjoy your tennis.

In the park you will also find a children’s playground and play club, basketball courts, a pond, an ornamental garden and a refreshment kiosk in the summer.

Ladywell Centre Sports Hall

A stones throw from Ladywell Park, the Ladywell Centre is used to run courses and sessions for our youngest players and our new pickleball sessions and courses.

There is plenty of space inside the centre and it offers a great location to teach pickleball and tennis basics on small courts with softer balls.

Hilly Fields

One of our newest coaching locations in Lewisham, Hilly Fields provides a great venue to play tennis.

Hilly Fields offers excellent views over Lewisham and the city of London and is a great place to enjoy the outdoors.

Alongside the tennis courts you will also find a cafe, outdoor exercise area, football pitch, play area and a basketball court.

Chinbrook Meadows

Chinbrook Meadows is located between Chinbrook and Grove Park, adjacent to the boundary with the London Borough of Bromley.

The two courts have been completely refurbished and offer an excellent playing surface.

Catford Wanderers Tennis Club

Alongside our park based locations, we’ve also teamed up with Catford Wanderers Tennis Club to bring our coaching programme to this fantastic venue.

The club has three hard floodlit courts which you can play on all year and six grass courts during summer.

The club loves to welcome guests to sample the social mix in tennis that happen on Wednesday mornings, Friday and Sunday afternoons.

If you like what you experience the club offers memberships to juniors and adults.

Mayow Park

In addition to the two beautifully maintained tennis courts, nestled amidst a serene backdrop of trees and greenery, the park offers an array of amenities.

After your game of tennis, treat yourself to a visit to the park’s fantastic café, where you can relax and refuel with a refreshing beverage or a tasty snack.

Ladywell Fields

The Ladywell Fields courts are located in the northern part of the park at the back of Lewisham Hospital.

The 5 new courts (four with floodlights) were refurbished in 2017 by Lewisham Council in partnership with the Lawn Tennis Association, London Marathon Charitable Trust, and Glendale.

The court surface is tarmacadam and the venue is wheelchair friendly.
