Poole Park tennis courts

We have 4 main courts and 2 mini-tennis courts which are available to hire.

We have disabled parking spaces in all car parks with the entry gate and some courts being wheelchair friendly.

There are steps down to courts 1 and 2.

Become a member

The best way to hire one of our courts is to become a member. This means you will have access to a key fob which enables you and those living with you to be able to book a court.

You do not need to be a resident of Poole to join and children can be members too.

The cost is only £24 per year for Poole Park or £40 per year for both Poole Park and Branksome Park tennis courts.

If you are an Access to Leisure and Learning card holder then the cost is £15 per year, per site and £25 for both.

If you don't have one already you will be asked to set up an online self-service account with us first.  Then you will be able to apply for membership.
