If you are in London for a few days, and fancy a game of tennis, what’s the likelihood of getting a court? Pretty good if you ask our Concierge! Even better, tell us at the time you book your accommodation with us and we’ll arrange a court for when you are in town.
Malcolm Hendry, General Manager of The Rubens at the Palace and 41 Hotel, loves to play, so if you need a partner he’s happy to oblige (provided your name isn’t Andy Murray, Roger Federer or Novak Djokovic!). He’s also come up with a short list of the most accessible courts in Central London for guests of Red Carnation Hotels.
Hyde Park Tennis and Sports Centre
Hyde Park is just to the west of Mayfair and north of Knightsbridge. There’s a tennis centre with six high quality courts on the southern side, barely 500 yards from the Milestone Hotel, a mile from The Egerton House Hotel, and about a mile and a half from The Rubens at the Palace, 41 Hotel and The Chesterfield Mayfair.
Regents Park Tennis
Regents Park is about a mile to the north of Oxford Street. There’s a tennis centre in the middle of this gorgeous park with 12 hard courts (4 floodlit) and 2 mini tennis courts. The Montague on the Gardens is only a mile away and our four other London properties are all within about a mile and a half – just a few minutes in a cab.
Islington Tennis Centre
Six indoor tennis courts with a viewing gallery and two outdoor floodlit tennis courts. Just to the north of the city and nearest to The Montague on the Gardens – but a relatively quick cab drive from all our London properties.
The Westway Sports Centre
8 indoor acrylic courts (the same kind used in the Australian Open) and 2 outdoor floodlit clay courts. Just to the north east of Holland Park so nearest to The Milestone Hotel and The Egerton House Hotel – but just a short cab ride from all our London properties.
Tennis courts in Chiswick
7 hard courts. To the west of London, but a reasonable cab ride from all our London properties. Easiest to reach from The Milestone Hotel and The Egerton House Hotel.
