"The facilities are due to reopen for booking on Monday, July 22. We apologise for any inconvenience.”

The courts were given a ‘new lease of life’ thanks to funding from the councils and LTA, as well as the UK Government, as part of LTA’s Park Tennis Project. A total of £98,000 will be provided by the government and LTA Tennis Foundation, along with £155,000 from the councils.

Free tennis sessions will also be run at both sites, with those of any age or ability able to sign up.
