The British weather is never quite forgiving and the thought of playing a tennis match in the pouring rain is enough to test anybody’s breaking point. However with Wimbledon only a few months away and British tennis going from strength to strength. It is the perfect opportunity to grab a racket and play at some of London’s best indoor tennis courts. Check out a few of the best places MyLocalPitch has to offer during the very confusing British weather!

With over 6 indoor tennis courts on offer you’re spoilt for choice, all the courts can be booked without a membership giving you the flexibility to pay as you play. This centre is open to all capabilities with access to free parking, rackets and changing rooms.
Next is the winner of MyLocalPitch’s 2015 award for Outstanding Sports Venue. New River Sport and Fitness is based in Haringey and is a venue committed to the development of grassroots tennis.
