Book Tennis Courts Online
It is now easy to book tennis courts online before you come to the park. This is a great way to make sure one will be free for your match. You can book in minutes from your mobile, tablet or computer.
If you forget to book before you arrive at the park, the easiest option is to quickly use your mobile phone to reserve one of the available courts. You can also check availability and pay at the Kiosk if you do not have an internet-enabled phone with you.
Play friendly competitive matches in the Oxford Tennis League.
There are four 8-week rounds a year and men & women (18+) of all standards are very welcome to join.

Oxford parkrun is a free weekly 5km event for runners of all standards.
It is not a race against other runners, but a 5k timed run which can be whatever you want it to be, whether that's for fun or as part of a training plan.
It offers an opportunity for all the local community, male or female, young or old, to come together on a regular basis to enjoy the Park and get physically active.
Taking part is easy - just register in advance on the parkrun website by 6pm on the Friday before your first ever parkrun. The great thing is that you only ever need to do this once.
After the run, if you don't have to get off straight away, there will be the chance to socialise over a cup of tea or coffee at a nearby cafe, to swap stories about your run that day.
So whether you are a complete novice looking to get yourself started or a seasoned athlete wanting to use this as a part of your training schedule, you're welcome to come along and join us.
