New Tennis Partnership at Basingstoke Indoor Tennis Centre & Stratton Park

National Tennis Association (NTA) is delighted to announce a strategic partnership with Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council, marking a significant stride towards achieving our mission to "develop, educate, and inspire more people into tennis."

Through this new strategic partnership, NTA is set to operate and enhance the tennis offer at Basingstoke Indoor Tennis Centre and the Stratton Park tennis courts from January 2024. 

NTA is committed to enhancing Basingstoke Indoor Tennis Centre and Stratton Park tennis courts, transforming them into vibrant hubs for community engagement and tennis excellence. We aim to create a seamless, inclusive, and holistic tennis experience that will cater to all beginners, enthusiasts, and seasoned players alike.

In a groundbreaking move to enhance both tennis facilities, NTA will develop a comprehensive strategy that merges the charm of the Indoor Centre with the natural allure of Stratton Park Courts. This coordinated approach links both facilities into one central offer for the local community. 

Central to this new direction is creating a unified online presence, 'Basingstoke Tennis,' a one-stop hub for tennis users to connect, book courts, and enrol in a diverse range of coaching programmes.

At the heart of this collaboration is our shared commitment to inclusivity. We believe tennis is more than just a game; it's a catalyst for community engagement and a healthy lifestyle. Our strategy is not simply about tennis operations; it's about threading tennis into the social fabric of the local community.

Ed Nieburg, Director at National Tennis Association, said, "This new agreement brings a comprehensive and accessible tennis offer to Basingstoke and Dean, opening tennis up to everyone in the local community and creating the platform to allow many more people to experience the mental and physical health benefits the sport can bring. NTA's vision is to develop, inspire and educate more people into tennis. It's great, through this partnership, to have the unique opportunity to join up tennis at both the indoor centre and park site into a unified tennis offer for the local community to enjoy."
