Tennis Centre[edit]

Easton College Tennis Centre is a £3.2M development consisting of 8 indoor tennis courts which is Norfolk’s only pay & play indoor tennis facility. No membership is required to use the courts.

Built with partnership funding from the Learning and Skills Council, The Lawn Tennis Association, the Norfolk Lawn Tennis Association and of course the college, the project was completed in two phases. In autumn 2008 the first stage of the building project was completed when the four court air hall became operational. Once these courts were up and running the tennis programme started to develop. In early 2009, building work started on phase two of the project. This second stage was this permanent structure, including four more acrylic indoor courts, changing rooms, toilets, refreshments, offices, seminar rooms and a viewing gallery.
