    Tennis by the River Dart. Coronation Park with its four courts is shown on the left above.

In Dartmouth (UK) we are fortunate enough to have four all-weather tennis courts, two of which are floodlit, and all available for public use on Coronation Park (TQ6 9RR).

The courts are owned and managed by Dartmouth Town Council and can be booked through the LTA’s ClubSpark website by annual season ticket holders and casual visitors. The courts are centrally located in the town and provide stunning views of the river.

Toilet facilities are located within a short walk and there are of course plenty of cafes and pubs for post-game refreshments.

Parking can be found either at Mayors Avenue Car Park, or the Park and Ride near Sainsbury's or along the embankment

Dartmouth Tennis Association: We have set up an association of local tennis players and supporters. Membership is free and we welcome all ages and abilities. Its purpose, organisation and how to join are given here

Dartmouth Town Council: The Council is responsible for the maintenance and the upkeep of the courts and their bookings. The Council can be contacted on: 01803 832281 or email:reception@dartmouthtowncouncil.gov.uk.  If you have a safeguarding or welfare concern, then please contact their Welfare Officer on 01803 832281.   

Weekly Groups: Many members of the Association play in group sessions every week and Dartmouth Town Council have kindly agreed to recurring bookings for these groups and these sessions are shown on the ClubSpark booking schedule. Each is run by a Tennis Coordinator - details here:

These groups provide a good mix of abilities and ages playing doubles tennis and members can ask to join any group but some have waiting lists and they may need to sign up as a reserve.  Most groups organise themselves by email. Members can of course set up their own matches via ClubSpark here..

    Dartmouth has much to offer, boat trips, shops, cafes, restaurants as well as wonderful tennis.

Regatta Tennis Tournament and other events: Every year in August we organise and run the Regatta Tennis Tournament (consisting of a Closed and Open section) seeking strong volunteer support and a good entry.  More details here.  We will also run a number of smaller events, in support of charities or working with other organisations in Dartmouth.

Booking Courts

You can book courts using the ClubSpark website or phone app. In both cases you will need to create an account.
