The Davis Cup was exciting enough… but now we’ve won a little something too!

Hillsborough Park has won the LTA’s Regional Community Venue of the Year, beating competition across the whole of the North Region.


An independent judging panel praised the joined-up partnership approach (led by Parks Tennis), the online booking system and the low-cost coaching programme across six Sheffield parks.

Well done to our Community Tennis Manager, Alison Steel, for leading the way and helping get people out on court to (re)discover all the benefits tennis has to offer.

Thanks to all our coaches, players and partners (Sheffield City Council, the LTA, Places for People Leisure, Sheffield Wednesday FC and more). I'd better stop, before I do a Gwynnie and weep all over the keyboard.....

Happy Christmas and roll on the new year to work off the turkey and all those trimmings… See you on court!
