Elmbridge Borough Council and the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) are working in partnership to encourage more residents to take up or play tennis more often and to make sure local tennis courts are sustainable in the years to come.
Local tennis courts are a valuable asset for the community and are much appreciated by casual users and club members alike. Most courts are well utilised but there is scope to maximise their use both on weekdays and at the weekend with the implementation of a proactive outreach programme directed at players of all ages.
New options are being considered for managing the courts to ensure fairer access to everyone, to protect facilities from vandalism and improper use and to ensure they are maintained to the highest standards. Your views are important to us. Let us know what you think.
Fill in the online survey by Friday, 2 September 2016 (extended deadline).
Councillor Janet Turner, Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Cultural Services, said, "The Council is working in partnership with the LTA to increase local participation in tennis. In order to build on the current interest, it is necessary to keep the courts in good condition and well maintained so that an appropriate tennis development plan can be put in place. We would like your views on how the local tennis courts can be managed effectively in the years to come, so please take a few minutes to fill in the online survey."
