I was thinking about taking up tennis on a very casual basis - any recommendations for some courts in a nice location which are not too public?(because I am awful at tennis and would hate it if random passersby could see me! So the Columbo Centre may be out on this basis!) I live in Waterloo but happy to travel a bit.
I just came across this message, there are 4 courts at Tanner Street, they are fairly quiet during the day and not many people around so you cant really embarrass yourself. I play down there and i am pretty bad!!! not heard any giggles yet! :)
then there are courts at Burgess Park, there are some nice courts there, i think its £4 an hour if you are a member, they have coaching there too, £7.50 for a session with other people or £15 with a one-to-one. Contact the club for details, its Southwark Park Tennis Club, you can google for the number. I play down there too.
And if that still embarrasses you, then there are two courts at Brunswick Park, its a mission to get to them but they are ultra secluded (and to be honest a little scary in my opinion) but i have played here and noone really disturbs you
Hope that helps and not too late now that tennis season is almost coming to a close :)
