Council seeks views on proposals for the District’s tennis facilities

Following the recent upgrade of the tennis courts at Victoria Park and Christchurch Gardens and the planned upgrade of further courts in the next few years, Warwick District Council is proposing to appoint either a single or several operators to manage the courts and widen the opportunities for local people to take part in this much-loved sport.

The Council owns 21 tennis courts across the District at Victoria Park, St Nicholas Park, Christchurch Gardens and Abbey Fields. As part of a wider review of its tennis, athletics and football facilities, the Council has been working closely with the Lawn Tennis Association to understand the best way to improve the tennis facilities and the options available to encourage more people to try the sport, as well as ensuring that the courts are financially sustainable.

A consultation exercise has already been undertaken with local sports clubs, and now residents are being invited to submit their thoughts on the proposals on the Council’s website until Sunday 24 October 2021.
