Coronavirus update, 13 May 2020: the resumption of tennis from today applies to club members only. Public bookings are not being accepted at this time.
Non-members can book courts and floodlights at Fishbourne Tennis Club
Fishbourne Tennis Club welcomes public bookings on three of its four all-weather courts. Courts 1, 3 and 4 are able to be booked by non-members. Court 2 has an artificial grass surface and is reserved for members’ use only. Courts 3 and 4 have floodlights available and these can also be booked by members of the public on an hourly basis. Only book Court 1 when it is light. The booking system does not take into account the changes in daylight hours.
Booking of courts and floodlights is done exclusively online. It is a convenient and easy way to book and manage your tennis. Please note that you are booking with Fishbourne Tennis Club, and not our friends at the Fishbourne Centre. Please pay with a credit/debit card. It is not possible to pay with cash. You will be asked to supply your email address when booking. After your booking has been accepted you will be emailed confirmation containing your exclusive four-digit code to give you access to the court (and also the code for the floodlights, if booked).
Please note that Pay-and-play customers play at their own risk and accept that they are not covered by the Club’s insurance. Terms and Conditions apply – please see the bottom of this page.
IMPORTANT: Four-digit lock code
You need a four-digit code to our combination lock on the court gates. This will be printed on your booking confirmation email. Please print off the entire email with the four-digit code and bring it with you as you may be asked to provide it as evidence of your booking. Unfortunately, if you forget the code you will not be able to get into your court. The Fishbourne Centre does not have the code. If you have booked floodlights, use the four-digit floodlight code to open the lights switch box on the outside of the clubhouse by the door.
