From next week, playing tennis on Eaton Park’s hardcourts will be better value for money as the ‘pay and play’ system is replaced with an annual membership one. At the park there are four all-weather flood-lit courts operated by Norwich Parks Tennis. The other three courts, currently managed by the council and charged at £6.10 for a full-paying adult per hour, will also be managed by Norwich Parks Tennis from Monday 31 October. Membership is just £30 a year and is valid for anyone who lives in your home and means you can book online and play for no additional charge. So, if you play just five times in a year, you’ll have made a saving.
