Play tennis at South Woodham Ferrers Leisure Centre (SWFLC).

We also have tennis courts in some of our parks.

Tennis at SWFLC


Tennis is a fast-paced sport that really gets you moving. It is a great all-round workout, keeping your heart healthy, tones muscles and burns calories.

We have four outdoor floodlit courts that can be hired to play tennis for a singles match, or doubles. Bookings are for 55 minutes and start on the hour.

Come down for fun, or challenge your partner to a match.
