Burton Court is private property owned by the Royal Hospital Chelsea, which is used to generate funds for the running costs and maintenance of the Royal Hospital.

At present, the comprehensive pass to Burton Court allows our members access to the following facilities:

  • Tennis
  • Personal Tennis Coaching
  • Children's Tennis Academy
  • General Walking
  • Dog Walking
  • Access to the cricket nets

Demand for pass cards is high and the eco structure is quite delicate, so we have to carefully balance the usage and impose rules on pass holders that we insist are followed so that all members can enjoy the area.
