Indoor tennis at Manor Park is available at MACIT (Malvern and County Indoor Tennis), a joint venture between Manor Park and Hereford and Worcester LTA.
There are 3 Synpave spring cushioned acrylic courts which are available for booking by Manor Park members.
The original 2 court facility was upgraded in 2010 with the addition of a 3rd court and much-improved viewing facilities. The new facility was officially opened on 16th November 2010 by Tim Henman OBE. The opening was also attended by the President of the LTA, Derek Howarth.
The courts are bookable online (click on Tennis Court Booking on the left). Manor Park members are automatically members of MACIT but separate membership of MACIT is available for those interested in using the indoor facilities. Click here for a Macit Application Form

We are a well-supported club with excellent playing facilities. Our 17 tennis courts include 3 indoor courts which is a real bonus. Courts are:
- 4 synthetic grass courts with floodlights
- 4 acrylic hard courts, 2 with floodlights
- 2 artificial clay courts
- 4 grass courts for summer play
- 3 acrylic indoor courts
On-site parking is available for over a hundred cars. The Clubhouse offers changing facilities, meeting rooms and a kitchen. The club office is open on weekday mornings.
Floodlights are available on the four synthetic grass courts and on two of the acrylic courts. The light meters for the four synthetic grass courts are in the clubhouse and need to be fed with £1 coins at the rate of £1 per 12 minutes of court time. The light meters for the pair of acrylic courts need to be fed with tokens costing £2 at the rate of £2 per 24 minutes of court time.
If the floodlights go out, it takes about 15 minutes for them to cool down before they will come on again. On the synthetic grass courts a red light fixed to a lighting post comes on as soon as the remaining illumination time is less than five minutes for that court.
Tennis membership includes tennis outdoors and indoors. Rackets membership includes tennis outdoors and indoors and squash & racketball. Court fees are payable on indoor tennis courts. Subscriptions include tennis and squash national association fees. Membership runs for 12 months from the date of joining. Country membership (over 30 miles away) is available by application.

Opportunities for social tennis include roll-ups (turn up on the day) and rotas (games arranged in advance). Special effort is made to discover the playing intentions of new members and to assist them to integrate at an appropriate level. Members are encouraged to book courts for their own games of singles or doubles. Tennis is a year-round activity at Manor Park because in addition to indoor courts the synthetic grass and artificial clay courts are playable in most winter conditions. This includes evening play under floodlights.
Members are welcome to entertain their visitors at Manor Park. The court fee for visiting adults is £2 and for juniors £1. Payment should be made at the club office or the café
