Noss Mayo Tennis Courts
With two recently laid non-floodlight hard courts, this is home to the Newton & Noss tennis club.
Members can book 7 days in advance; visitors 2 days in advance and payment is made online. If a court is available, visitors are welcome to pay and play on the courts, but please be aware that any online bookings will have priority. For visitors the walk-on fees are £2.50 per adult per hour, and £1.00 for a child. There is a box at the court where you leave your payment. We rely on the honesty of people playing and without the income generated from court fees it will not be possible to maintain the courts.
To book a court or find out more about membership of the club, please visit the Newton & Noss Tennis Club.
