Facilities and Features at Hyde Park Tennis and Sports Centre

Hyde Park located in the heart of London is one of the eight Royal Parks and was basically created by Henry VIII for leisure activities which for him meant deer hunting. However, with the passage of time, leisure activities have taken on a new perspective and currently they include walking, running, picnicking, swimming, rowing and boating at the Serpentine, cycling, horse riding and playing tennis. In general, most people have become health conscious and like to mix their sports desires with physical activities to keep fit and tennis provides the right avenue for this purpose. It is one of the most popular games in the world today, as it is played in all parts of the world.

One of the best places to indulge in this game in London is Hyde Park, basically because it is located in the core of central London and in the midst of a large number of hotels and other attractions and landmarks of the city. As such, it is an ideal place for visitors to the city, who mostly stay in the accommodations in central London, for getting some fresh air, exercise their limbs and muscles and have a good time, while being able to meet other people. One of the most popular places where most visitors to London like to stay is a hotel near the National Gallery, which is in Trafalgar Square, close to Hyde Park and near the hub of all activities in this area. They get the advantage of simply walking down to the National Gallery as well as the National Portrait Gallery and to various other attractions of the city and the famous landmarks such as Nelson’s Column in Trafalgar Square. The most popular hotel in this area is Park Grand London Paddington Hotel, which is a 4-star luxury accommodation that offers most comfortable accommodation with bespoke room facilities, ultra-modern hotel amenities and unbelievable personalised services, designed to pamper the guests and all this at most reasonable and affordable cost. Besides being close to most attractions of central London, this hotel is also at a walking distance from Paddington station. It is just 3 miles from the National Gallery, via Bayswater Road, Park Ln and Piccadilly and it takes just 16 minutes for this journey. Guests at the hotel are also close to Hyde Park where they can play tennis and indulge in other activities.


Hyde Park Tennis and Sports Centre: Located at the western end of the Sports Field at the junction between West Carriage Drive and South Carriage Drive, it offers 6 high quality tennis courts, a well-maintained 6 rink lawn bowling green and a 9-hole putting green, a cafe and changing facilities. The high-quality tennis facilities are accredited by the Lawn Tennis Association. The Centre encourages people to come and play and for those who wish to become members, a range of membership options are available. It also runs coaching courses for children and for adults. The Centre also organises tournaments and teams can play in local tennis leagues.

Lawn Bowls: A well-maintained 6 rink flat green bowling green is also offered by the Hyde Park Tennis and Sports Centre. The bowling green, or even an individual rink, is available from May-October, depending on the weather. Individuals, families, groups of friends or established clubs can request to take the bowling green for hire and they can even pre-book it. Bowls of all sizes are available for hire.

Putting Green: A challenging and well-maintained 9-hole putting course, which is popular with both groups and families, is also offered by the Centre.

Tennis and Sports Centre Cafe: Players and spectators who wish to relax and have refreshments can visit the Tennis and Sports Centre Cafe that also offers toilets, and a garden with seating. The cafe is open from 10am – 4pm in summer and 9am – 9pm in winter.

Will to Win Hyde Park: With the objective of making tennis experience pleasurable, this organisation has been running the facilities in Hyde Park since 2003, so that more and more people patronise the tennis centre. It offer something for everyone as it has a comprehensive programme of adult and junior drop-in sessions, courses, tournaments and events that take place throughout the year. Besides the 6 tennis hard courts, lawn bowling green, putting course the Centre also offers 2 mini tennis courts, various grass multi-sport pitches, outdoor adult gym, children’s playground, cafe, pro shop and changing rooms. The opening hours are daily 8am – 6pm. Although the centre is open throughout the year, the use of tennis court and pavilion opening depend upon daylight hours and changes in weather. The Lawn Bowls and Putting Greens are currently closed until mid-April.

The courses run by the centre include Adult Courses and Tennis Weekends, that provide group instruction from a qualified coach; Beginner/Improver courses that are ideal for both adults returning after a long break or for those trying to learn tennis for the first time and basic stroke production is through game based learning; Intermediate Courses that are meant for more experienced players who wish to gain consistency; and Advanced Courses meant for those who have played a lot of tennis and play regularly.

Tennis Weekends: This is meant for Improver and Intermediate players so that they develop their tennis skills by putting in more effort during one of the Tennis Weekends.
