It is not known why this tennis court was recorded during this survey, and would not normally be recorded according to standard NMP methodology. It was, however, recorded so as not to be confused as an archaeological or historically important feature. Only part of the photo reference is given in the transcription attributes, so the date of the photographs is not known.
