Why us?

The Sports and Tennis Centre has been open since September 1996, and has established itself as an affordable, popular and high-quality local facility which is open to everyone, whatever your age or ability.  We’re proud to be friendly, relaxed and fun, whilst still offering our customers the very best professional service.

The Centre was built through financial and other assistance from the following organisations:

  • Foundation for Sport and the Arts 
  • The Lawn Tennis Association
  • Cambridge City Council
  • Cambridgeshire Lawn Tennis Association
  • The Lottery Sports Fund
  • Hills Road Sixth Form College

We’re also handily placed, and yet far away from the crush of town traffic - the Centre’s location on Purbeck Road  makes it ideally placed to serve the surrounding residential and business community. You can beat the rush hour and nip in for a pre- or post-work gym session, arrange a lunchtime squash match with a colleague, meet new people through our social badminton sessions or even use the facilities at the weekend with your family or friends.

So, if this sounds like your ideal fitness facility, have a browse round the website, and if you want to find out more, give us a call. We'll be happy to help!
