The new practice wall is installed and available to use!
Great news - Bardsey Tennis Club has received a grant for £6k and is getting new surround netting and a tennis wall!
At the start of the year we applied for a grant to fund the replacement of the aging netting that surrounds the courts. At the same time we applied for funds to have a tennis wall installed as well. After a nervy wait we eventually got the news that the 'Emmerdale S106 fund' would kindly give us a 50% donation (£6,150) towards the cost of these. We have now received this.
The tennis wall we will be getting will be integrated into the surround netting - you can see how it will look on the video here:-
This type of tennis wall is at a number of clubs in the South of England and half a dozen clubs in Lancashire however Bardsey will be the first club in Yorkshire to have this type of wall.
The work is due to begin very shortly (possibly Monday 3rd July - will let you know as soon as we find out) but the one drawback is that the courts will be out of action for 9-10 days (we have tried to avoid doing it during school hols).
However once it is finished it will be great for everyone especially the kids who will improve at a rapid rate using the wall.
We will provide an update on the date of the iminent works on the website and via Facebook.
