Redcotts Recreation Ground
“The perimeter fencing around the old grass tennis courts area at Redcotts Recreation Ground has been removed due to its poor condition. Wimborne Minster Town Council’s Recreation and Leisure Committee will be reviewing the use of this area in 2023 and will be consulting with users and residents later in the year.”
Redcotts Recreation Ground is used by local football teams which hire pitches in the ground, Wimborne Tennis Club, and Wimborne Bowls Club. It also has a children’s play area, a petanque pitch, a basketball area and a half pipe skateboard ramp as well as a football kick-about area and table tennis table.
Wimborne Minster Tennis Club has three floodlit hard courts and four grass courts in the summer. All courts are available for the public to use on a pay and play basis without having to join the tennis club.
