I would like to book a tennis / netball court - what is the cost?

The Council operates a ’debenture scheme’ for these at John H Burrows Recreation Ground, Rectory Road, Hadleigh. The courts are available for the public to use free of charge. However, if you would like to use the debenture scheme you will need to pay and book your required slots. This would mean that the public would not be able to play during those times.

Please contact us (including your name, telephone number and where you wish to book) streetscene@castlepoint.gov.uk or telephone us on 01268 882200 if you wish to make a booking. You can refer to Fees and charges  on the Council’s web site.
