As a local PE teacher, I was disgusted this evening to find that the local council tennis courts are already out of use, due to Mumford and sons event in Lewes in 8 days time.
No wonder it has taken 77years for a British male to win Wimbledon.
Lots of children and adults alike visited the grass courts this week after the Andy Murray win, to be turned away due to lack of facilities.
We decided to drive to Kingston instead, to find out it was club night, then to Firle to find an empty court locked up, and to be told be locals that it was members only.
Surely with this British win, we should be encouraging everyone to have a go at tennis. But where? Answers please, as I don’t have any and I’m the one who should know.
