Game, set, and match

We have four hard court tennis courts (or one netball court), which are located next to the Sports Centre. The outdoor courts have floodlighting for evening use and are covered by a bubble during winter, allowing play to continue year-round.

Book a court through the Essex Sport App available to download from the App Store and Google Play.

Tennis is a great way to maintain your health, fitness, strength and agility, whilst improving your reaction times. An hour-long game of singles tennis is said to burn 600 calories for men and 420 calories for women. It is a non-impact sport and can be played competitively or as a recreational activity with friends.

Netball is a fantastic team sport that’s not only fun to take part, but also provides players with skills eagerly sought in the workplace, including problem-solving, pushing yourself to improve your skills, and dealing with adversity. It’s also really good for your health and your body shape.

Or brand new £12 million Arena offers 20 indoor courts, including basketball, volleyball, netball, badminton and futsal; with seating for up to 1,655 spectators. The arena and entertainment areas can be hired by regional, national or international sporting teams.
