Anyone for tennis? Court upgrades for Yate

Yate Town Council's tennis courts at Sunnyside Lane have been resurfaced and repainted. The fencing has been improved, plus a path to the courts from the car park to improve access to the courts for all members of the community.

Yate was awarded a £31,150 funding boost from SITA Trust, and worked with tennis experts to get the courts completely refurbished.

Councillor Sue Walker said "The newly surfaced courts are available for hire - why not come along and give tennis a try its a fun way of keeping fit and losing those few pounds you may have gained over Christmas? The courts are in a lovely situation near the common can be accessed by turning into Moorland Rd from Station Rd and continuing to the end where there is a free car park"

A local tennis coach also holds coaching sessions at the courts for various ages and abilities.

For details of how to book the courts please ring Yate Town Council on 01454 866506 or check out the council web page.

The hire rates are rates are currently as follows:
  • Adults - £6.40 per court per hour
  • Children - £3.20 per court per hour
  • Older people - £ 5.20 per court per hour
