South Norfolk: Revamped tennis courts are a smash hit

Refurbished tennis courts at Kett's Park

South Norfolk Council’s newly re-surfaced 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 work, the Council have built a fourth court that will also be used for netball.

New energy-efficient LED floodlights will be installed in the coming weeks so players can enjoy the courts throughout the winter.

The £150k upgrade was funded by the Greater Norwich Growth Board through the Infrastructure Investment Fund.

South Norfolk Councillor Richard Elliott and portfolio holder for Customer Focus said:

“This recent work at Kett’s Park continues to show our ongoing commitment towards improving our public sports and leisure facilities and inspiring our communities to lead active and healthy lifestyles. These latest improvements to the tennis courts will result in high-quality tennis provision for Wymondham Tennis Club and local residents to enjoy.”

Simon Spanyol, Club Liaison Officer at Wymondham Tennis Club (based at Kett’s Park) said:

“We have just had our first club night back at Kett’s Park, which was very well attended. Everyone agreed that new courts look fantastic and play really well. We wish to say a big thanks to the Greater Norwich Growth Board for funding the project and also to South Norfolk Council, who accommodated us at Framingham Earl Sports Centre, while the work was taking place.”
