The Courts at Bristol Central

You can book the courts online and the club uses the LTA site to do this. This makes it really easy and you can see when they are booked. No waiting around to play.

They all come with floodlights and a nice touch is that you don’t have to pay for floodlights. At other clubs you usually do and can cost upwards of £3/hour.
