Court work going well
Work on the new courts at the old Burnside Tennis Club is “progressing well”.
Rutherglen Lawn Tennis Club are transforming the derelict facilities into state-ofthe-art new courts to create a split site club.
The new fake clay courts are expected to be open by the end of July.
On Friday, a new clubhouse was lifted into place by crane.
RLTC club president Gareth Ellor said: “Work started [on the courts] three weeks ago. It’s progressing well but there is still some way to go.
“Work will be finished and courts open at the end of July.”
The Burnside courts were closed in April 2015 after dwindling membership forced Burnside Bowling Club to pull the plug.
RLTC launched their Return to Splendour campaign to try to save the popular courts.
They raised £20,000 and secured funding of more than £200,000.
Members overwhelmingly backed the proposal at an EGM.
