How many times have you strolled through Hyde Park? Im guessing at least half a dozen.
Likelihood is that we all know there’s a lake there, a couple of cafes and you may even know about the open air theatre (which is great by the way!). I’m guessing you didn’t know about the WillToWin tennis courts though which are found in the south of Hyde Park, did you?
Tucked away in between flowers and bushes, these tennis courts really are a hidden gem.
You don’t need to be a member to play, don’t have to wear fancy whites and nor do you even need to book! You can just turn up and play straight away or enjoy the cafe and umbrella bar facilities while you wait for a court to become free.
If you’re not a tennis fan there’s still plenty of reason to visit WillToWin in Hyde Park. You can also enjoy playing a game of lawn bowls (surprisingly easy to get the hang of) and great fun with a group of friends, or try your hand at the 9 hole putting green on site too.
When we visited we certainly got stuck into both the putting green and the lawn bowls with a group of bloggers all of us got a little competitive but had great fun.
Especially for the summer season WillToWin have set up an umbrella bar serving cocktails and more. Try the Sipsmith London Cup if you fancy something like a Pimms but more refreshing.
There’s also a cafe on site which uses great produce to create delicious salads and sandwiches which will give you an energy boost for another round.
There are eight WillToWin centres across London, mainly in west London but there’s also one over in Greenwich Park but the Hyde Park one, with its central location and great facilities is well worth checking out.
Check the weather forecast and grab your friends for a game of tennis or lawn bowls as soon as the sun comes out!
