We’re the Official Parks and Participation Partner of the LTA (Lawn Tennis Association)

Formed in 1888, the LTA is the national governing body of tennis in Great Britain. We’re working with them to get more people playing tennis, through fun, free coaching sessions, events and competitions in local parks.

Together, we’re proud to launch Barclays Free Park Tennis. This offers everybody free access to one-hour tennis sessions on Saturdays or Sundays from 10am, with coaching and equipment provided. We also sponsor lots of other great LTA tennis initiatives, including Barclays Big Tennis Weekends and Barclays Local Tennis Leagues.

LTA and Barclays tennis initiatives

Barclays Free Park Tennis

Open to everyone and free of charge, Barclays Free Park Tennis is a great way to meet and play tennis with people from your local area, or as a fun activity with friends and family. We’ll provide the equipment and coaching – all you need to do is find your local session and sign up.

Barclays Big Tennis Weekend

In partnership with Barclays, Big Tennis Weekends are free open days hosted by hundreds of tennis clubs and parks across the country all year round . Grab a racket and get involved with games, competitions and social events. Find your local event and book your spot.

Barclays Local Tennis Leagues

Whatever your level, there are over 200 Local Tennis Leagues based in parks and public courts across the country. Compete throughout the year in adult singles and doubles leagues, meeting new people and improving your skills. Find your local tennis league for competitions, coaching and more.

Volunteer at Barclays Free Park Tennis

Our volunteer Activators make Barclays Free Park Tennis possible and we’re always looking for more people to help out. We’ll give you free online training and provide your park with tennis equipment, so you’ll have everything you need to run sessions.
