TENNIS players evicted for failing to pay a rent to use a pavilion will be given another opportunity to occupy the building.
Woodbridge town council is trying to reach an amicable agreement with the town's tennis club over the use of the Kingston Field pavilion where the club plays on district council courts.
The town council owns the pavilion and it evicted the club in May when the club refused to pay a rent of £4,500.
Now the finance and staffing committee has agreed that Mac Miles, committee chairman, can approach the club with a new offer to try to encourage them to use the pavilion which stands empty and unused.

The running costs of the pavilion have been calculated at £2,755 and the tennis club will be asked to pay a rent of £4,500 annually plus the costs of cleaning, rates and insurance. The town council would pay for electricity, water, telephone and maintenance.
Woodbridge Youths Football Club will be asked if it wants to hire the changing rooms for £15 a half day during the season, and the Community Tennis Partnership would be charged £30 a day for the changing rooms and kitchen.
