Mans­field welcomes new tennis courts

Mansfield Courier - - SPORT -

IN the com­ing months, Mans­field will have ac­cess to a brand new tennis court.

“Peo­ple will be able to come and play when­ever they like,” said David Mims of the tennis as­so­ci­a­tion.

“It will be such a good as­set to not only the club, but the en­tire com­mu­nity.”

While the works started two months ago and are well un­der way, the com­mu­nity won’t be able to make use of it for a few more months.

“Ba­si­cally ev­ery­thing is done ex­cept for a slightly rub­berised sur­face, which won’t be done un­til about Septem­ber,” Mr Mims said. “They don’t like do­ing it in win­ter,” he added. Mans­field Tennis As­so­ci­a­tion has been watch­ing closely, amazed at how quickly the court has come up.

“It looks good,” said Mr Mims.
