Do I need a PIN code for every park with tennis courts?
Yes this applies to Central, Gooseley, Lyle and Stratford.
What do I do if my PIN doesn't work?
Firstly, please check that you are within the timeframe that the PIN is active. If you are, please call the telephone number that is on your booking confirmation and you will be provided with an alternative PIN for that booking.

No. You initially pay for 12 months membership and if you want to carry on using the courts after that you can pay for each year's renewal as you go.
If I have purchased an annual registration, when does it start?
