Victoria Park is situated close to Widnes Town Centre. It holds the prestigious Green Flag award. Opened in 1900 to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria, Heritage Lottery funding has restored Victoria Park to its former splendour and enabled the replacement of the major features that had disappeared over the years such as the bandstand, fountain and lake.
There are 4, floodlit tennis courts, open all year, disabled access, a cafe, picnic areas and a butterfly house.
Widnes Tennis Academy and Halton Borough Council in partnership with the Tennis For Free are looking to build a vibrant tennis community at Victoria Park. We’ve linked with the Tennis For Free charity to provide weekly FREE coach led group tennis sessions on Saturdays to anyone of any level of any age. The session are designed to be family friendly so book on all of your family members and come down to give the session a try. You and your family members will be able to participate in the various groups appropriate to their age and standard.
The sub groups within the TFF session are:
10:00 - 11:00 - Parent & Child Session (equipment is left out until 12:00 to allow parents to continue playing with child after the 10:00-11:00 session)
10:00 - 12:00 - Beginners (typically juniors & beginner adults)
10:00 - 12:00 - Improvers+ (typically rally capable adults & strong juniors).
