As junior members have been unable to play or be coached during winter months we are installing flood lighting and all weather playing surfaces to provide consistency. We are also looking to make the venue accessible for disabled and special needs visitors and players. We have successfully relaunched outreach programs into locally schools and have opened the club up to non members to provide facilities to all local people.

What we'll deliver:

  • All weather courts
  • Winter floodlighting
  • Replace pathways and widen access routes

Why it's a great idea:

All sports bring huge benefits to fitness and mental health. By improving the facilities the club has to offer, we hope to bring health and wellbeing to all of our local community.

Steps to get it done:

  • The project has been completely costed with suppliers quotes
  • We have raised some grant and loan money to allow us to commence the project
  • Contractors have been engaged and are due to start in a few weeks
  • Ground is being cleared shortly to enable contractor access
