Sport and Fitness

There are lots of ways to get moving and stay active in our parks, from playing sport on one of our courts or pitches, to finding a fitness group in your local park.

Tennis Courts

We teamed up with Newcastle City Council and The LTA (Lawn Tennis Association) to secure a £188k investment into Newcastle’s tennis courts.

The Spring of 2024 saw the re-opening of the newly refurbished courts in partnership with We Do Tennis as court operators across the city.
