Serving up improved tennis
LOCAL tennis players can look forward
to much improved facilities as work is under way on upgrading the courts at
The Park's 2 free to use Courts have been given a makeover as they were in
poor condition and required a substantial renovation.
A programme of improvements, investing £56,000 of capital funding, has been
carried out by the City Council's contractors, Glendale Liverpool. It has
involved resurfacing the courts, undertaking new line markings, posts and nets.
There will also be a new wire mesh fence around the courts with access gates and
Councillor Steve Munby, cabinet member for neighbourhoods, said:- "Tennis
in local parks is very important and we need to ensure that the facilities meet
the players' needs. Who knows; a future Wimbledon champion might play their 1st
games at Sefton Park. We want all the users of parks; whether they are playing
tennis, taking children to the play area or just going for a walk to have an
enjoyable and safe experience. This investment will make Sefton Park a more
attractive place and encourage more people to play tennis."
