The funding is part of Commuted Sums, collected from nearby housing developers. Funding has been awarded to resurface two existing Macadam Tennis Courts at the club, which is based on Norwood.
In addition to the £21,000 Commuted Sums funding, the club has also been awarded £1,000 from Tesco Bags for Help. They have also received £3,000 from Beverley Town Cricket and Recreation Club and £2,000 of the club’s own funds.
The Lawn Tennis Association had assessed the existing courts and concluded that the works needed to be undertaken.
For the club, which was formed 100 years ago in 1919, this resurfacing allows them to provide a year-round playing surface which can be enjoyed by all members.
“The courts were installed a good while ago, so it’s great to get the funding to make them safer now.”
