As I understand it, the surface of a tennis court needs to cure after it has been laid. I understand that the curing period is one month so May looks like a realistic target. Just in time for Wimbledon fever.
The tennis courts look pretty good now, certainly they will be rather more predictable than the old surface. I'm also impressed with the work that has gone on around the edge of the courts. Maybe we can look forward to the re-instatement of the five aside pitch at the back of the courts themselves. How about flooodlighting?
All in all, Tanner St Park is a wonderful resource and, as someone who has the pleasure of looking out onto it, maybe now even a thing of beauty.
And for all you tennis nuts, check out the courts at the back of Addington Square, on the edge of Burgess Park
. More facilities. Fantastic.
