South Norfolk Council’s recently refurbished tennis courts at Kett’s Park, Wymondham, have reopened and are proving a hit with residents and the local tennis club.
In addition to the resurfacing works, the Council has constructed a fourth court which will also be used for netball.
New energy-efficient LED floodlights will be installed in the coming weeks so players can enjoy the courts all winter long.
The £150,000 upgrade was funded by the Greater Norwich Growth Board through the Infrastructure Investment Fund.
South Norfolk councilor Richard Elliott and portfolio holder of Customer Focus said:
“This recent work at Kett’s Park continues to show our continued commitment to improving our public sports and recreation facilities and inspiring our communities to lead active and healthy lifestyles. These latest improvements to the tennis courts will result in a high quality tennis offering for Wymondham Tennis Club and local residents. »
Simon Spanyol, Club Liaison Officer at Wymondham Tennis Club (based at Kett’s Park) said:
“We just had our first club night at Kett’s Park which was very busy. Everyone agreed that the new courts are fantastic and play very well. We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to the Greater Norwich Growth Board for funding the project, as well as South Norfolk Council, who hosted us at the Framingham Earl Sports Center during the works.
