Ace facilities: Wandsworth residents urged to pick up a racquet and make use of borough's newly-resurfaced tennis courts

July 2018

Wandsworth residents are being encouraged to pick up a racquet and enjoy a game of tennis on one of the borough's recently resurfaced courts.

As The Championships, Wimbledon gets underway (the world-famous tennis tournament has its venue just down the road from us in Southfields), there's no better time for residents to improve their serve or approach shots at any of the resurfaced courts in parks across the borough.

Resurfacing improvements have taken place at tennis courts in King George’s Park, Wandsworth Common, Tooting Common, and Wandsworth Park, among others.

The tennis court improvements have been funded by All Star Tennis, which looks after 28 tennis courts in the borough.

Floodlights have been installed on the courts at King George’s Park in Wandsworth, meaning that players can remain playing until 9pm.

Council spokesperson, Cllr. Steffi Sutters, said: "We know that tennis in Wandsworth is popular all year round and especially so when all the world’s top players are performing on our doorsteps in SW19."

"With this new investment of £500,000, players across Wandsworth can benefit from some really excellent facilities, while the introduction of the floodlights at King George’s Park in particular provide a great option for people who love playing all-year-round", Sutters added.

The London Borough of Wandsworth has a strategy in place to turn Wandsworth into the most physically active borough in London by 2022.
