Guidelines for players

Hi everyone, just to keep you posted: great news that tennis has now moved to the allowed list of activities. The courts are not open at this time but we hope they will be open shortly.

When they are open to the public we will let you know.

When they do open, please read and try to follow the new guidelines issued by Ulster Tennis for players: Guidance-for-Tennis-Players-in-NI

2020 – Coronavirus & tennis in the park…

So welcome to our Musgrave Tennis page. 2020 has turned out to be quite a year so far as I’m sure you all know and life has changed a lot.

This is normally the time of the year when we have our provisional schedule for the Summer but as we are all currently on Lockdown I wanted to give you an update about tennis and tennis in the park.

Around the world professional tennis has stopped and its unlikely given its truly international nature that it will be up and running as normal this year. We may be lucky to get a few big events towards the end of the year but as you know Wimbledon this year has been cancelled.

Here in Belfast tennis is not currently advised and in public parks or private clubs it cannot take place. Musgrave park is open at the moment for pedestrian access but the tennis courts are locked. The park management have advised they are maintaining the grass courts with the hope that if restrictions are lifted, tennis may be able to take place.

So everyone, watch this space. When we know more and if it is safe to do so, we hope to have tennis on in the park!

In the meantime here are a few photos from the last few years:
