Tennis Facilities

it was great news for our Club when we signed an under lease in November 2018 with Clinton Lamprecht ( ESG Imber Court LLP) which will provide fantastic new tennis facilities at Imber and significant investment into our Club and its infrastructure.

Work will be undertaken in four phases and the 1st phase started on the 7th January with the refurbishment of our existing hard courts.

I popped down yesterday to see the progress of the work and the good news is that it is progressing really well and this coming Saturday 2nd February will see the reopening of four of our hard courts.

I know this will please our die hard Tennis members who play throughout the winter , come rain or shine on Thursday mornings and Saturday afternoons – you know who you are.

 

I took some pictures ,  not the finished product yet of course but a great new surface.

 

I will keep you updated of the developments via this blog so if you have not already subscribed and want to hear first of all the developments here at Imber subscribe now.

 

Tennis at Imber

As the final touches are made this morning to the agreement that will see a massive redevelopment and investment in tennis at Imber I thought it apt to share this photo

Taken yesterday, Jo Pagetti with his merry band of weekend warriors who are seen most Saturdays on out Courts defying the weather and natural laws of gravity and ageing.

One of the last Saturdays they will be using our older courts before they are replaced with new hard and clay courts and depending on permissions a Dome for winter use. We will also  see a diversity of courts with mini and paddle courts enabling a range of ages and abilities to enjoy the facilities.
We will be keeping our grass courts and will see an increase in the  numbers of courts across the grounds with a variety of surfaces.

Exciting times ahead for our Club with new and improved facilities.
