Parks Tennis Procurement

The current approach to managing Tennis Courts in Parks across Sheffield is financially challenging.


We are seeking approval to go out to tender for a parks tennis provider to;

-       develop and manage a new Activity Hub at Hillsborough Park

-       manage the existing 6 Parks Tennis sites

-       manage 2 new Parks Tennis court sites when these are developed


The introduction of an Activity Hub at Hillsborough Park would provide a financially sustainable solution to the city-wide parks tennis programme.


The enhancement of the existing parks tennis programme would lead to greater health outcomes for a wider audience.
