Queens Park Tennis Club Facilities
We enjoy excellent facilities, set on the edge of Queens Park in a Grade II listed conservation area. QPTC has the use of four upper courts (1, 2, 3 & 4) and a further two lower courts (5 & 6) below the clock tower.
You do not need to be a member to play at QPTC. Non-members can book a court online for £8.20 per hour. To book a court, click here.
Please book and pay for your court before playing.
For the benefits of membership (£0.00 per hour for full members), please click here.
All players use these courts at their own risk. Do not play if:
- You do not have suitable tennis shoes.
- You feel unwell.
- The courts are wet and slippery.
- It is uncomfortably hot.
Full Members are invited to join club sessions, free of charge, three times a week during the season (April to October): Mondays 18:00, Fridays 18:00 and Sundays 14:00. Off season (October to March), we just do the Sunday session at 14:00. Times may vary. Please check.

GDPR & Privacy
At Queens Park Tennis Club we understand that we have a responsibility to protect and respect your privacy and look after your personal data. Data Protection law will change on 25 May 2018 and this Privacy Notice sets out your rights under the new laws. In brief, this Privacy Notice explains what personal data we collect, how we use your personal data, reasons we may need to disclose your personal data to others and how we store your personal data securely.

1 Why do you need to process my data?
The law now states that we are only able to process personal data if we have valid reasons to do so. Anyone who becomes a member of this Club or books its facilities (courts or Clubhouse) will need to provide certain information including, but not restricted to, name, contact and payment details where needed. We will use this information to process and administrate your membership or booking.

Membership Secretary Pauline O’Reilly will be able to see your membership data. Pauline stores this information on a password protected computer that has security software.

Court booking is administrated by the LTA’s Clubspark system and will be subject to their GDPR guidelines. Schools and organisations’ details for court bookings (not completed via Clubspark) will be held by Keith Stollery, Treasurer, who administrates these partner bookings. Any details Keith has are again stored on a password protected system with security software.
