Large multi-sports hall in Söndrum
Söndrumshallen (Swe) is Halmstad’s largest racket sports centre. Here you can play tennis, badminton, squash, table tennis and padel. There’s also a café for refreshments and a shop with a wide selection of racket sports equipment. For a number of sports clubs, moreover, it’s home. But whether you want to play as a private person or as a club member makes no difference: you are warmly welcome to Söndrumshallen.
In and around Halmstad there are about 45 outdoor tennis courts that are free for the public to use. No booking is required. Note that the quality of the courts may vary however. You can find a map and overview of all the courts on the Municipality of Halmstad website (Swe). We've picked out four that have a little bit extra.
- To start with, there’s a very popular court at Nyhem on Klackerupsgatan. Recently resurfaced and located in a very pleasant green area,there’s also a children’s playground right alongside.
- In Slottsparken, a stone's throw from Nissan and Halmstad Castle you’ll find another court in beautiful surroundings. Not only that, Slottsparken's outdoor gym is close at hand.
- A further court with an excellent surface may be found nestled between Flagskeppsvägen and Galärvägen,
- At Järnvgsleden / Falckens there is a small green area with a popular and good tennis court.
Perhaps you’d prefer to play indoors? Then there are two halls to choose from. The multi-sports hall, Söndrumshallen (Swe) has five indoor courts and six gravel courts outside. Or you can play at the historic Halmstad Tennis Hall (Swe), built back in 1936 and thus one of Sweden's oldest tennis halls. More recently, it’s also been used for badminton and handball. The hall’s special surface makes for a fantastic tennis experience with excellent touch and feel, while being very gentle on the knees. Book the Halmstad Tennis Hall and you can have the whole place to yourselves. Both halls can be booked for regular sessions or for occasional games.
Halmstad Tennis Club has also moved most of its activities to Söndrumshallen. For those interested in membership, however, the club maintains its training sessions at Halmstad Tennis Hall, Karl XI:s väg 13.
Table tennis, badminton and squash
Occasional sessions to play most racket sports can be booked at Söndrumshallen. In addition to padel and tennis, there’s also table tennis, badminton and squash.
