Anyone for tennis?

Tennis nets made out of bunting set in glorious surrounds. Game. Set. Match. This is tennis with a National Trust twist.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Tennis equipment ready for your minis to use. Think garden tennis at its best rather than professionally trimmed lawn. Onlookers might feel the need for a cream tea on the sideline.

There are two tennis nets on the cork oak lawn but lots of other outdoor games to enjoy if you have to wait your turn.

What is Gift Aid?

Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.

Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:

  • Gift Aid Admission
  • Standard Admission

If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.

Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.

An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:

  Gift Aid Standard
Amount paid by visitor £11.00 £10.00
Tax refund from Government* £2.75 £0.00
Total received by the National Trust £13.75 £10.00
