Tennis wall in London?

Does anyone know where there is a tennis wall in London?

I am getting into shape, and would absolutely love to practice against a wall. The only problem is they don't really have many of them anywhere that I know of. If someone could give me some advice where some are, that would really be appreciated.

West London would be ideal. But I am assuming I will just have to go where ever it is. I work in Islington, a lot of East London is pretty close by to me as well. So I am open to a few places. But definitely West London, Hammersmith, Chiswick or Shepherds Bush region would be perfect. But I am willing to travel a little to get there. Just not to the greater London areas, or anything too far out. South London is kinda a pain to get to, as well, but would consider it.

Other than the indoor courts in Westway, which you have to pay quite a bit for, never really seen a hitting wall in the outdoor courts.

Not sure about West London but if you work in Islington, give Rosemary Gardens a go - couple of courts, recently resurfaced, a wall and floodlights. Tends to be mobbed in summer though. Doesn’t Islington tennis centre have a wall on one of their outdoor courts? Bit pricey though.

Oh wow, nice call on Rosemary Gardens. Actually a tennis wall in an outdoors court in London. Incredible. Thanks. Although, yeah I imagine using it during the summer might be difficult, after work. Would be great if I could use it though. Thanks for that.

Court 6 outdoors at the Lee Valley Hockey & Tennis Club has a hitting wall - in Stratford, not far from Islington. Double check when you call to book, think it's 6 but could be 4!

Warton road in stratford (in an enclosed court)

Also Regents Park and Victoria Park.

I’m in west London now and looking to hit. I’ve been here since Monday and I know nobody and don’t know any of the clubs. I just know Hyde and holland parks there doesn’t seem anyone there to hit with.

Hi @vsbabolat, I’m away at the moment and am a country mile below your playing standard otherwise I’d offer you a game. Have you tried the Westway drop in sessions - don’t think you need to be a member but not sure what the quality will be like (the West London contingent will know better than me):

Alternatively, it might be worth signing up to Londontennis (https://www.londontennis.co.uk/) as the forums there seem to be frequented by the best / keenest players....

Popped by Reagent's park the other day but couldn't find the tennis wall. They've got 12 courts there but none of which have a wall that I could hit against for some practice. Am I just looking in the wrong place?

Possibly Ravenscourt park? Free before 9am every day I think if you are after an early session

Its not there. I have looked multiple times in both places where the courts are. I dont know, on another place someone mentioned they have one.

Well chaps, I am back to being fit, and ready roar. I am going to spend this next weekend probably at Rosemary Gardens hitting against the wall trying to get back my sharpness.

I am down to hit if someone wants a hitting partner from Dec 1 onwards? Just message me, sure we can sort something.
