How we will achieve our goals
The new club is built on the only available site. It is very steep and the groundwork has been more expensive than expected. The money would help with final touches – fitting out the new courts with nets, posts etc. Smaller children’s nets have been included along with smaller racquets and mini tennis balls for them.
Where the money will go
TENNIS – A FUN, FLEXIBLE AND AFFORDABLE OUTDOOR ACTIVITY FOR ALL AGES AND ABILITIES will be situated at a central site accessible from all parts of Marlborough
