Cross Hills Tennis Club nets £48,500 from Sport England
11:00am Sunday 10th February 2013 in News
Cross Hills Tennis Club has received £48,500 from Sport England to improve its playing surface to provide all-year-round availability.
It will also replace its rundown clubhouse with a more comfortable and easily maintained building providing an improved viewing area.
The grant has come from Sport England's Inspired Facilities fund, part of a £135 million Places People Play programme linked to last year’s Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Glenn Frost, chairman of the 70-year old tennis club, said he was delighted that the Sport England investment would mean an end to the club’s present “crumbling edifice”.
Glenn said: “We can upgrade our courts and clubhouse, hopefully attract some new members and ensure the club will continue to be a valuable asset for Cross Hills.”
