How much could you earn from your swimming pool or tennis court?

The table below shows indicative amounts of what a host can earn from their swimming pool or tennis court. Depending on the features of the pool or court and the hours rented out, the income earned could be significantly more or less than that shown.

 Indoor Swimming Pool    Outdoor Swimming Pool    Tennis Court  
 Rental price per hour £40  Rental price per hour £30  Rental price per hour £10
 Hours rented out per day 4 hours  Hours rented out per day 4 hours  Hours rented out per day 2 hours
 Monthly Income £4,800  Monthly Income £3,600  Monthly Income £600

Most pool or court owners test the water by only renting a few hours a week to start with. Once they feel more comfortable about it, they increase the number of hours to suit their needs.
